Black holes belch fire after eating cosmic spaghetti, studies show.

By examining 'echoes' of infrared light, scientists were able to measure the intensity of black hole flares.



When objects approach a black hole, they become stretched under immense gravitational force – a phenomenon fittingly known as “spaghettification.” The black hole then devours its cosmic meal, before finally letting loose a massive, flaming cosmic belch.

For the first time, scientists have recorded this explosive event. By examining infrared light from black hole disruptions, which is captured and “echoed” by surrounding space dust, two separate research teams were able to measure the intensity of the flares.

2. was this posting a mistake?

The Religion forum?
Shouldn't it be in the Science forum? Don't see anything remotely religious about this story.

4. Perhaps not, but the title is hilarious!

I'd post it in the Pastafarianism group, but I was banned in that group for a question I had a while back regarding sanctuary for immigrants.

The Religion Forum seemed like the next best option.

5. being banned from the Pastafarian group

for having non-conforming views may be a definition of irony. God (bless his noodlyness) forbid that the forum is not taken seriously!
