"Even mainstream scientists admit that at singularities the ‘laws of physics’ break down. It would be more accurate to say that their own theories break down." -- David Pratt, natural philosopher, 2005
Space.Com: Black Hole Is Biggest Ever Discovered.
PASADENA, CALIF. — The most massive black hole yet weighed lurks at the heart of the relatively nearby giant galaxy M87.They didn't expect the supermassive black hole even though they've been saying there is one there for (at least) 30 years?
The supermassive black hole is two to three times heftier than previously thought, a new model showed, weighing in at a whopping 6.4 billion times the mass of the sun. The new measure suggests that other black holes in nearby large galaxies could also be much heftier than current measurements suggest, and it could help astronomers solve a longstanding puzzle about galaxy development.
"We did not expect it at all," said team member Karl Gebhardt of the University of Texas at Austin.
Nearly three decades ago, it was one of the first galaxies suggested to harbor a central black hole. Now astronomers think that most large galaxies, including our own Milky Way, have supermassive black holes at their centers.So let me get this straight: the black hole is so utterly weak and feeble and gravitation is so non-existent that there are intragalactic Birkeland currents shooting out of it and everything can escape it?
M87 also has an active jet shooting light out of the galaxy's core, created where matter swirls closer to the black hole and approaches the speed of light, then combines with tremendous magnetic fields. The spat-out material helps astronomers understand how black holes attract and gobble up matter, a sloppy process in which all is not consumed.
If the material is being attracted towards the black hole at the speed of light why is it being "spat out" in the opposite direction?
How does that work exactly?
Does it require a lobotomy?
Speaking of lobotomies, I'm guessing the mainstreamers will say it has something to do with tides.
