NASA Finds Giant Ring of Black Holes


www.suite101.com

Supermassive black hole
NASA scientists are also exploring the possibility that a mysterious X-ray source in the red galaxy of Arp 147 may indicate the presence of a supermassive black hole. A supermassive black hole is the largest type of black hole found in a galaxy, possibly equivalent to hundreds of thousands times the mass of our Sun. Most galaxies are believed to contain supermassive black holes at their centers.

Feb 09, 2011 NASA scientists announce the discovery of Arp 147 and describe it as the result of two galaxies colliding in deep space.

The result of this cataclysmic event is an expanding wave of new stars, exploding supernovas and mysterious black holes with mass that could be twenty times that of our Sun.



NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and the NASA Chandra X-ray Observatory have found a pair of colliding galaxies over 430 million light years from Earth




The composite image of Arp 147, a pair of interacting galaxies located about 430 million light-years from Earth, shows X-rays from the NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory (pink) and optical data from the Hubble Space Telescope (red, green, blue) produced by the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, Md.

Just think, this is what it looked like 430 million years ago! In that time a super civilization could have emerged and deactivated the black holes.


This is really very cool and hopefully can give us some further insights as to how the universe functions. I really think this sort of research / discoveries improves humanity in ways we don't even understand yet.

This object carries the designator "Arp" because of Halton S. Arp.

The link goes to a page about his work. That page has a link to his personal website.

Dr. Arp is famous for not accepting the status quo in astronomy (back in the last century).

Yes I find it funny that NASA would attach Arp's name to some of their Black hole nonsense.


Google "Thunderbolts of the gods" and "The Plasma Universe" for a better understanding.

Wow, didn't see any proof of any black holes at Arp 147. Only evidence offered up was X-ray burst- this seems to favor the EU theories, as colliding Galaxies would likely have a lot of electrical currents exchanged and lighting is known to produce x-ray bursts ahead of the visible light. Wonder how long before the visible light bursts reaches us?

Yes, yes indeed they did! They found it located "surrounding" the congrssional budget office in D.C. (jk)

Oh goody, another rabbit hole to explore!
With all the gravitational lensing / detector differences etc., God only knows whats going on here.
If you don't hear back from us in a month or so don't forget to send us a letter!

Now thats funny.

Like the black hole in the Pentagon....

Very neat looking. Of course it happened 340million years ago. So there could already be basic life on some of those planets that formed.

Exile, yes I loved the picture.

With the continuing controversy surrounding black holes
its interesting that NASA finds a "giant ring" of them.

In a hundred years they are going to look back and think how backward and ignorant we are now....

... just don't tell that to any scientist... they think we've about got everything figured out and thy "know how it is..."
