Supermassive black hole emits a ferocious 'double burp'.

Supermassive Black Hole is Caught Letting Out Massive 'Burps'

A supermassive black hole in a distant galaxy gobbled up gas - then released two "burps" in the form of blasts of high-energy particles.

The burp itself consists of a stream of high-energy particles that is kicked back from the black hole. 'Fortunately, we happened to observe this galaxy at a time when we could clearly see evidence for both events.' So why did the black hole have two separate meals?

Supermassive black holes, which can have the mass of 100 suns, are found at the centre of almost all big galaxies.

Scientists have combined images of the J1354 galaxy, which is located 800 million light-years away. The scientists got the information about the double burping massive black hole by analyzing data collected by the Hubble Space Telescope and the Chandra X-ray Observatory. X-ray emission from the galaxy in question - called SDSS J1354+1327 - was picked up by the Chandra telescope, allowing researchers to pinpoint the location of its central black hole.

In the same way as normal black holes, they are regions of space-time with gravitational effects so strong that even light can not escape from inside of them.

In the meantime, it had expanded 30,000 light-years away from the black hole itself.

Closer to home, there's evidence that the black hole at the center of the Milky Way burped as well, at least once: In 2010, researchers found bubbles of gas expanding outward from the galactic core, from an event millions of years ago. Dr. Comerford informed that the new burp was moving like a shock wave that was coming out very fast.

"You walk in the room and you notice there's an old burp still hanging in the air from the appetiser course".

She said the black hole was going through a cycle of feasting, burping and napping, before starting over. In fact, we already have well documented instances of such plumes of gas being ejected from black holes, but the duality of this fresh discovery is what makes it special. The black holes were expected to become very bright in the process of feasting and burping and then go dark during the nap phase.

Julie Comerford, an astronomer at the University of Colorado Boulder, informed that although Black holes are voracious eaters, it also turns out that they do not have very good table manners.

The scientists believe there were two burps in quick succession as the black hole consumed two separate "meals" of matter.

'This collision produced a stream of stars and gas that links J1354 and the other galaxy.

"We are seeing this object feast, burp and nap, and then feast, burp and nap once again, which theory had predicted", Ms Comerford said.
