Black Hole Blows a Big Bubble

Date- 3rd Aug 10 Source- 'A black hole on the outskirts of the nearby -- 12.7 million light years -- galaxy NGC 7793 has produced a powerful microquasar. NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, the Very Large Telescope, and the CTIO 1.5-m telescope have pooled their observations of the microquasar, a system containing a stellar-mass black hole being fed by a companion star. Swirling gas forms a disk around the black hole, then twisted magnetic fields create a huge bubble of hot gas about 1,000 light years across.'
