Huge black hole blasts out 'double burp'

1 post in this topic

Astronomers have caught a massive black hole letting out a "double burp" after bingeing on hot gas.

When cosmic gas comes near one of these sinkholes, it gets sucked in - but some of the energy is released back into space in the form of a burp.

Now, the Hubble and Chandra space telescopes have detected a new belch emerging from a black hole located about 800 million light-years away.

But they saw a remnant of another belch that occurred 100,000 years earlier.
