Quasar sends energy blast 2 trillion times more powerful than Sun

November 29, 2012SPACEScientists have reported the largest blast of energy ever recorded from a far-off quasar, some two trillion times more energetic than the sun. The discovery may explain confusing discrepancies between the observed and predicted masses of black holes. Quasars are extremely bright galaxy cores, at the center of which sits a black hole. Their light is generated when material is sucked into that black hole, creating large amounts of energy. But quasars are also capable of emitting that energy back out, away from the black hole, and one of those emissions is what the researchers, led by Nahum Arav of Virginia Tech, observed. The team used the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope, located in Paranal, Chile. Energy outflows from quasars on the scale of what Arav’s team observed have been predicted for some time by theorists, but have never been recorded by researchers. The existence of such emissions may answer a question that has intrigued astrophysicists for some time. While theoretical models of the universe tend to approximate what researchers observe, one major difference has persevered: Theoretical models tend to overestimate the mass of black holes relative to the rest of the galaxy. If quasars are ejecting energy at the rate observed by Arav’s team, which could explain where that mass goes. But the theory rests on the notion that such emissions are fairly common, and the team’s discovery is the first such emission researchers have observed. As a result, Arav and his team now want to find more powerful quasar emissions to cement the idea. –LA Times

    I find it interesting that the LA Times is now reporting this. I watched a program on either the History Channel or Science Discovery Channel, some time ago, that talked about these quasars. Seems like the media is finally talking about things that the scientific community has known about. The program also talked about what would happen if one would hit the Earth. It wouldn’t be pretty.

    I’m forever in awe if quasars but they are terrifying to even think about. This is really interesting news and I can imagine there are even more powerful energy sources in space we can’t even comprehend. It all takes my mind to the most powerful source of energy in all dimensions, God, who created all things.

    Anyway, Scientists need to get ready to have their theories and minds blown out of the water in the (near) future.

    It also says rejoice when you hear of all these things,knowing that our salvation draws near.Luke 21:7 So they asked him, “Teacher, when will these things happen? And what will be the sign that these things are about to take place?” 21:8 He said, “Watch out that you are not misled. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them! 21:9 And when you hear of wars and rebellions, do not be afraid. For these things must happen first, but the end will not come at once. Mark 13- 13:37 What I say to you I say to everyone: Stay alert!”
    Therefore Be Ready!
