Black Hole Bubble
The nature of black holes has long baffled astronomers. Now, a new discovery from a nearby black hole is adding to the mystique of these strange, powerful phenomena that dot the cosmos. A black hole, 12 million light-years from Earth is emanating particles with tremendous velocity into nearby interstellar gas, creating a massive bubble. The discovery is helping astronomers learn more about the evolution of black holes and how they effect their surrounding space.
