Newest LIGO Signal Raises A Huge Question: Do Merging Black Holes Emit Light?
“The second merger held no such hints of electromagnetic signals, but that was less surprising: the black holes were of significantly lower mass, so any signal arising from them would be expected to be correspondingly lower in magnitude. But the third merger was large in mass again, more comparable to the first than the second. While Fermi has made no announcement, and Integral again reports a non-detection, there are two pieces of evidence that suggest there may have been an electromagnetic counterpart after all. The AGILE satellite from the Italian Space Agency detected a weak, short-lived event that occurred just half a second before the LIGO merger, while X-ray, radio and optical observations combined to identify a strange afterglow less than 24 hours after the merger.”
Whenever there’s a catastrophic, cataclysmic event in space, there’s almost always a tremendous release of energy that accompanies it. A supernova emits light; a neutron star merger emits gamma rays; a quasar emits radio waves; merging black holes emit gravitational waves. But if there’s any sort of matter present outside the event horizons of these black holes, they have the potential to emit electromagnetic radiation, or light signals, too. Our best models and simulations don’t predict much, but sometimes the Universe surprises us! With the third LIGO merger, there were two independent teams that claimed an electromagnetic counterpart within 24 hours of the gravitational wave signal. One was an afterglow in gamma rays and the optical, occurring about 19 hours after-the-fact, while the other was an X-ray burst occurring just half a second before the merger.
YEAAAAAHHHHHHH BOIIII!!!! FINALLY TODAY IS THE DAY where burstale start posted at my FB n certain UT group XD ~ n it has reached 1 year (actually so does Epic since we both start at the same time)
Soooo cough cough// Firstly I wanna say thanks to all burstale readers that has read me n @amachi-blaze works for this series!! Without you guys I think I wouldnt go this far xD n Burstale was planned to have 3 chapter where its just a generic story of Chara n Sans fight to death ~ I know its stupid but I just want to try make short doujin of UT but it ended up so complicated but good with machi story,I never thought of putting gaster as a medium for Burst ability at first XD yet it goes so well with my artstyle
Burst was actually inspired by my favourite singer NANO n if checked her out they both wear black hoodies XD n most of NANO MV she wore hoodie to conceal her face ~
Hurmmmmm I have a lot of problem during designing Burst special characteristic at first but the as the story goes I keep changing the design n machi keep going crazy xD its fun to have our character keep going ~ n if some people think Burst is evil n yes she is ~ she have her own reason ok?xD
As the story may go slowly cuz im busy with works i’ll try to keep working on it!! N I know some of u guys keep waiting for the next update XD im sorry for my tight schedule n alot of commission im getting
Idk what to say anymore XD n THANKS FOR READING BURSTALE TILL NOW! Eventho we dont have much fan but I appreciate the small number cuz me n machi can still talk n communicate with u guys ~ <3
Thanks to @doge-genesis for few awesome fanart that we rarely get XD @deusn for who keep asking me how to make more plot n I learn myself from there too @xxmileikaivanaxx for also the fanart XD
@n you all readers n some fanart that you guys give us, I truly happy with the fanar some of you guys give!!! Im sorry if I didnt mention anyone here
I was waiting for it to settle cause when it sits for a bit the gold swirling dust sinks to the bottom and the top is an orange vermillion and it looks like a sparkling fiery sunset. This is a bath spell I call Sun Burst which is supposed to give you a boost of energy and fiery drive and it was perfect to shower with today! It smells like spiced citrus.
