NASA telescope catches black hole's rare light show

NASA telescope catches black hole's rare light show! The discovery of a super-massive black hole from the early cosmos is set to rewrite physics, say scientists.

Scientists have discovered the first binary system ever known to consist of a black hole and a ‘spinning’ star – or more accurately, a Be-type star. Although predicted by theory, none had previously been found.

Black hole

In August of 2007 astronomers located a gigantic hole in the universe. This empty space, stretching nearly a billion light-years across, is devoid of any matter. A radical and controversial theory proposes that it is a "Universe-in-mass Black hole"

At the centre of every large galaxy lives a giant black hole that swallows gas or dust clouds that stray too close. As matter spirals inwards, it is compressed into an accretion disk. By the time it falls into the black hole, the matter is so hot that much of its mass is converted to energy, which emerges as heat, light and jets of high-energy particles. http://www.nature.com/polopoly_fs/7.14928.1389717382!/image/Quasar.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_630/Quasar.jpg
