Look at the "cry of birth" of a new black hole, this powerful explosion has reached Earth

Astronomers from all over the world have seen an extremely bright and long-lasting high-energy radiance that took place over the Earth on Sunday, 9 October, and the study is based on gamma-raying, the most powerful class of explosions in the universe.

At the beginning of October, a wave of X-rays and gamma rays passed through the solar system, triggering the activation of detectors on the NASA Fermi Space Gamma Telescope, the Neil Gerels Swift Observatory, and the wind spacecraft and others.

The explosion was called GRB 221009A. The signal from the constellation of the Shooter passed about 1.9 billion years before reaching the Earth. Astronomers called it the "cry of the birth of a new black hole", which formed in the heart of a massive star that was destroyed under its own weight.

In these circumstances, the emergence of a black hole drives powerful particle jets moving at a speed close to the speed of light, these jeets piercing through the star, releasing X-rays and gamma rays, heading into space.
