NASA Observes Something Coming Out Of A Blackhole For the First Time Ever

Commonly held belief and scientific proof holds true that black holes suck matter in rather than spewing them out. But NASA found some curious evidence around a supermassive black hole named Markarian 335.

Two of NASA’s telescopes, including the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR), observed what is believed to be a black hole’s corona launching away from the supermassive black hole. That event was then followed by a large pulse of X-Ray energy.


"This is the first time we have been able to link the launching of the corona to a flare. This will help us understand how supermassive black holes power some of the brightest objects in the universe." Dan Wilkins, of Saint Mary’s University, said.

Fiona Harrison, the chief investigator at NuSTAR, admits that the energy source is “mysterious”. According to Fiona, the ability to record the event would in theory be able to provide clues about the black hole’s (Markarian 335) size and structure as well as information as to the nature of black holes.


Markarian 335 is 324 million light-years away from the planet earth.
