Did you know that when a black hole consumes too much space dust at a time, it will spit it out as shown on the picture

Looks more like a Gamma Ray Burst, like WR-104.

yeah i think thats called a quasar

Yessir, on super-massive black holes they are called quasars. And on smaller black holes they are referred to as microquasars

So black holes have, say, a bandwidth?

I really hope you are just trolling because that's ********

not ******** . what gets spit out is pure energy.

It's essentially a Quasar.

Quasars are any one of numerous objects that produce radio waves. Some of them are pulsars, others are black holes.

In this case, this "quasar" is a black hole.

actually, only a small amount of quasars are strong radio sources.

quasars are massive objects that only exist farther away in the universe (essentially meaning they are old objects, since looking far away means backward in time). at the center of most quasars are black holes, and they contain the amount of mass similar to our own galaxy. quasars are likely similar to young galaxies at high redshift.

quasars can't be pulsars though. pulsars are just rotating neutron stars

Actually, no it isn't. As matter is sucked into a black hole, it is spun, faster and faster as it gets closer, and some of that mater (now extremely hot and irradiated) is ejected out in two streams from either pole of the black hole.

So this is basically just intensified Hawkins radiation? It is not in fact released from the horizon?
#235 to #147 - tomthehippie (05/17/2013) [-]
From right before the event horizon I believe. And no, its not Hawkins radiation, just highly irradiated and energized matter that the black hole vomits out as it sucks down everything else.

Does that mean that we found something that travels faster than the speed of light in nature? Because black holes attract light. If that stuff can escape a black hole, does it go faster than the speed of light?

I'm assuming it is emitted before the stuff reaches the horizon (the point of no return for light)

Cool answer. For a moment I thought this was the most important discovery of man kind.

Sounds oddly familiar to a Gamma RAy Burst. Which happens when a star implodes on itself and the superheated core remains spinning fast as **** . Eventually it turns into a pulsar, that strobes beams of light from its south and north pole, but the initial release of energy is a Burst.

I think there are other ways too. Something about to neutrons or proton stars dancing, then colliding, creating a Burst, but I'm not a 100% on that..

Stellar jets are huge outbursts of plasma from a young star, planetary nebula or black hole that can be trillions of kilometres long and expand at speeds anywhere from hundreds of kilometres a second to something approaching the speed of light.

Jets like these are the result of a ring of dust and gas (called an accretion disc) being pulled into a dense object like a protostar or black hole and subsequently being fired out from its two poles in opposite directions.
