In order to detect it, they have to receive the photons from it. And right behind the PHOTONS, we have what, GAMMA RAYS. Might be a good time to get your chakras cleaned.

When you see the energy burst in visible light then gamma rays, x-rays and radio waves are arriving at the same time as the visible light. [/quote]
Scientists have reported the largest blast of energy ever recorded from a far-off quasar, some two trillion times more energetic than the sun. The discovery may explain confusing discrepancies between the observed and predicted masses of black holes.
Quasars are extremely bright galaxy cores, at the center of which sits a black hole. Their light is generated when material is sucked into that black hole, creating large amounts of energy.
But quasars are also capable of emitting that energy back out, away from the black hole, and one of those emissions is what the researchers, led by Nahum Arav of Virginia Tech, observed.
The team used the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope, located in Paranal, Chile.
