The researchers found that the biggest Explosion since the big Bang in slow motion”


With the help of several telescopes, the researchers, Simona Giacintucci, the crater of a massive Explosion in the cluster of galaxies Ophiuchus was discovered.

A massive Explosion of a black hole in Ophiuchus galaxy cluster is a giant bubble of gas in the milky way galaxy fits in to 15.

  • In the The Galaxy Cluster In Ophiuchus explore research at the end of the The crater a a giant Explosion
  • This crater would be the Milk-street, – off-huge – 15-fold for it to fit
  • In 2016, was the Discover the Burst is discarded because it was too big

The The Galaxy Cluster In Ophiuchus it is located at about 390 million light-years away from earth. However, he is currently in the focus of attention of astronomers. Because of the cluster of galaxies, the researchers at the end of the most well-known of previously With the explosion of the universe registered to the customer’s specifications, it is the biggest Explosion since the big Bang. The starting point of the Explosion was, according to the researchers, it is a super mass of black hole in a galaxy at the center of a cluster of galaxies.

A giant Explosion in the galaxy cluster: discovery of the first discarded

In 2016, another team of researchers has found, with the help of the Chandra x-ray telescope first evidence of a massive The explosion in the Ophiuchus cluster of galaxies.. At the time, the idea that it could be found, the indications are that the Blast was thrown out, due to the sheer size of the detected burst from the summit crater, which is actually a huge gas bubble. Now, in a new study, which was conducted by a Team of Simona Giacintucci from the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D. C., shows that this blob of gas, apparently, but, in the case of a The explosion it was.

The Explosion was about five Times as much energy as the previous record, which was recorded in the year of 2005, and he writes the research team in the journal “The Astrophysical Journal”. The Team looked at the Region to, among other things, the “XMM-Newton”telescope observations of the Chandra acknowledged.

The explosion in slow motion – the result of bubbles of gas in the milky way, it would be up to 15 Times

“We have in previous outbreaks in places The galaxies seen it, but it’s really, really, really, really huge”, he is the Co-author, with Melanie Johnston-Hollitt from the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) was referred to in a communication on the basis of their facilities. Why the Explosion was so violent, of course). It happened in slow motion – like an Explosion in slow-motion, which passed by hundreds of millions of years.”

The gas bubble created by the Explosion, you can pack the milky way is 15 Times, side-by-side, it focuses on Giacintucci, the size of the Explosion. In the meantime, the Explosion needs to be completed, the researchers conclude from their data, they may find that there is no evidence of a new surge in the data, according to a news release from Nasa. “We have to understand the observations in various wave-length of the physical process really is,” said Johnston-Hollitt.

Clusters of galaxies contain thousands of individual galaxies

Clusters of galaxies are the largest structures in the universe. They are held in place by gravity, and may contain thousands of individual galaxies, dark matter and hot Gas. The Ophiuchus cluster of galaxies is in the constellation the serpent-bearer (lat.: Ophiuchus). It was first discovered in 1981.
