Black hole news: NASA shows sheer fury of supermassive black hole

The jet is made via the black hole’s accretion disk, which is shooting out particles at near light speed.

Accretion disks are the materials which orbit a black hole. The friction generated by these discs as they are pushed and shoved by the extreme gravitational force is so large that it can produce a tremendous amount of energy.

Some of the materials get sucked into the black hole, while others are ejected out into space.

David Eicher, editor of Astronomy magazine, tweeted an image of the black hole, stating: “The fury of a monster black hole: This Hubble Space Telescope shot shows the jet emanating from the supermassive black hole in M87, the largest galaxy in the Virgo Cluster.
