Supermassive black hole at the very center of the disk

Astronomers map surroundings of supermassive black hole. XMM-Newton uses light echoes to map dynamic black hole. Astronomers map supermassive black holes as the physical spiral heads in the direction of the black hole. Astronomers map the surroundings of supermassive black holes. As the physical spiral moves towards the black hole. This heats up and emits X-rays which, in turn, resonate and resonate when interacting with nearby gas.

These regions of space are highly distorted and distorted due to the extreme nature of the black hole crush and strong gravity. Now, a team of astronomers and astronomers has used ESA’s XMM-Newton X-ray Observatory to track these light echoes and map around the black hole at the center of the highly variable active galaxy SAS 13224-3809 has prepared. These images show the environment of a black hole mapped using ESA’s XMM – Newton X-ray Observatory on Ambient Gas.

As the material enters the black hole, it rotates to form a flattened disk, as shown here, heating up as it happens. At the very center of the disk, near the black hole. Region of very hot electrons, with a temperature of about a billion degrees, known as a corona, produces high-energy x-rays that flow into space. Occurs Alston et al used the echoes resonance of this radiation, like XMM-Newton to characterize the surroundings of the supermassive black hole.


It stormed the black hole at the core of the active galaxy IRAS 13224-3809. One of the most variable X-ray sources in the sky, with very large and rapid fluctuations in brightness of a factor of 50 in just hours. It’s going through By tracking X-ray echoes, it became possible to auto-detect the dynamic behavior of the corona from which the rapid X-ray emission originates. The corona is displayed here as a field that changes in size and brightness, floating over a black hole.

The researchers discovered that the corona of black holes inside IRAS 13224-3809 resized incredibly fast in a few days. IRAS 13224-3809, also known as LEDA 88835 is located approximately one billion light-years away in the Centaurus planetarium. The galaxy houses a relatively small supermassive black hole (approximately one million solar masses) at its center. It is one of the most variable X-ray sources in the sky, experiencing very large and rapid fluctuations in brightness of a factor of 50 in just hours.

Everyone is familiar with how their voices resonate differently when they speak in a classroom than they do in a cathedral. It is only due to the geometry and materials in the room that behave and make the sound bounce back. different, “Dr. William Alston, astrophysicist at Cambridge University. Similarly, we can see how the X-ray radiation echoes propagate to the area around a black hole so that it disappears in eccentricity before a bulk of field geometry and position emerges.

It is like the cosmic eco-location. Since influencing gas dynamics is strongly associated with the properties of consumed black holes, Drs. William and his colleagues were able to determine the mass and spin of a supermassive black hole in IRAS 13224-3809, because it was sunk inward, looking at the properties of matter. As the black hole collapses, the inductive material forms a disk. Above this disk is a region of very hot electrons, with a temperature of about a billion degrees.

Although the researchers expected to see resonant echoes using maps of the region’s geometry. They also saw something unexpected: the crown itself changed incredibly quickly in a few days. As the crown changes in size, the light echoes: if the cathedral ceiling rises and falls, it changes slightly, causing an echo in his voice, said Dr. William. By tracking the light echoes. We were able to track this changing corona and, even more excitingly.

We got a much better value for the mass and spin of the black hole than we were able to determine if the corona was fit. It wasn’t changing. We know that the mass of a black hole cannot fluctuate, so any change in echoes must occur under the gaseous atmosphere. Scientists made the longest observation of the accelerated black hole made with XMM-Newton. Which was collected from more than 16 spacecraft orbits in 2011 and 2016, totaling 2 million seconds in 23 days.

This combined with the strong and short-lived variability of the black hole, allowed the team to model echoes extensively during daytime periods. Their results appear in the journal Nature Astronomy. Astronomers have mapped the gas vortices of a highly fluctuating black hole. Dynamic black hole are cosmic bodies of such terrifying density that even light cannot escape their extreme gravitational claws. But just because they’re invisible doesn’t mean we can’t find ways to see them.

This time, astronomers have mapped the shape of a supermassive vortex in the host galaxy IRAS 13224-3809. Which is located in the Centaurus constellation approximately one billion light-years from Earth. To achieve this. The researchers observed one of the longest black holes at the European Space Agency’s (ESA) XMM-Newton X-ray Observatory. This is how accumulation works, as matter in space is pulled into a black hole, it reaches such a high speed that matter moves up and down, millions of degrees.

And even that higher temperature, this overheated vortex generates radiation which can be detected by space telescopes as X-rays collide and bounce off gas particles near the whirlpool. Artist’s impression of the black hole that is fed by ambient gas with Corona fluctuations. By looking at those interactions, scientists say they are similar to how we can hear sounds in a cell and how sound recombination can inform us about the shape and structure of 3D spaces. reveal ‘light echoes’.

Obsolete form of supermassive black hole. Similarly, we can see how the geometry of a field and a state of matter echo X-ray radiation in the vicinity of a black hole before it emerges, said astrophysicist William Alston of the University of Cambridge. A technique called X-ray gathering mapping is not new, but it is evolving. Captured during 16 spacecraft orbits from 2011 to 2016, Alston and his team’s light echo readings came over 23 days of looking into space at the heart of IRAS 13224-3809.

As he did so, he saw something he wasn’t expecting. The corona of a black hole, a super hot electron sphere that hovered over the object’s accretion disk, burst dramatically over time, with its brightness only in 50 hours. Varying by a factor, as the shape of the crown changes, the light echoes: if the cathedral ceiling moves up and down a bit, the resonance of his voice is changing, says Alston. We were able to track this changing corona and, even more excitingly.

distant galaxies

We got much better values for the mass and spin of the black hole that we could determine if the corona size was not changing. Although this vision of the IRAS 13224-3809 supermassive black hole may be unprecedented in terms of detailed mapping, the external state of achievement may not last long. The researchers now hope to use the same method to examine and map the black hole physics of many other distant galaxies.

Hundreds of supermassive black holes are already within XMM-Newton’s long gaze and even more so when ESA’s Athena satellite (slated for 2031) will launch. In fact, everyone wanders around to tell us what remains to be seen but it certainly seems like we’re on the verge of some incredible discoveries here.

This work shows quite clearly that the future of studying black holes is very different,” says astronomer Matthew Middleton of the University of Southampton in Britain, depending on how they vary. It will focus on a series of new missions to be launched in the next 10 years, ushering in a new era of understanding of these strange objects (Supermassive Black Hole). The findings are exposed in Nature Astronomer.
