Scientists dedicate the birth of a new black hole to Stephen Hawking

Post by Dragon on Fri Mar 23, 2018 5:25 pm

One of the MASTER Global Robotic Net telescopes (MSU) located on Tenerife (Spain, Canary Islands) helped astronomers observe the gamma-ray burst caused by the collapse of a star and the formation of a black hole in its place. Standard telescopes are unable to point to gamma-ray bursts error-boxes fast enough to monitor the change in its brightness and obtain any information about its source. The scientists dedicated the new object to the physicist Stephen Hawking, and reported the finding in The Astronomer's Telegram.

Gamma-ray bursts are registered by space observatories daily. These energy outbursts follow the collisions of neutron stars or the collapse of a massive star into a neutron star, a quark or a black hole. Huge amounts of energy are released in these cases, and telescopes can detect gamma-ray bursts even if they happen millions or even billions of light years away from the Earth. Gamma-ray bursts last from several milliseconds to dozens of seconds and are registered in different ranges.

Professor Stephen Hawking tells us why black holes are not completely black, and how his discovery has created a paradox scientists are still trying to resolve today.

Bless, that's so nice of them to do this. After all he helped us to understand about black holes, it's a nice tribute to him
