The Center Of Our Galaxy May Be Way More Powerful Than We Thought, Say Scientists

Posted by in category: cosmology

There are few more beautiful sights than the orangey-red disk of our star, the Sun, sinking into the ocean. At sunset it seems a far cry from powerful, hot star we feel at midday and can’t even look at safely. If we were only able to view the Sun at sunset what would we think of it? It would be fair to conclude that it was far weaker than it actually is.

It could be a similar case for astronomers’ observations of the centers of galaxies, suggests a new study.

A new study indicates that scientists have substantially underestimated the energy output of supermassive black hole-powered active galactic nuclei.
