[quote:Anonymous Coward 1124145:MV8yMDY2MTkzXzM0NzcwODU4X0M2NUFBNkVB] The quasar claim is based on the assumption that such objects are far away as indicated by red shift. But that may not be true. There is evidence (see Halton Arp) that quasars are associated with nearby galaxies and are much closer and less energetic than assumed according to current science dogma. [/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.
