Explores the theories concerning recent discoveries by astronomers about some extraordinary stars and tiny points in space which have the power to destroy objects and lightAuthor: Melvin Berger. Issues of the expanding universe, distances to quasars, redshift and its causes, different types of galaxies, and observational problems are addressed in the several chapters. Quasars may or may not be related to black holes, just as active galaxies might be fueled by black holes/5(2). This isn't the best of my space reads but it deserves 4 stars. This book takes the most fascinating characteristics of space; Quasars, Pulsars, and Black Holes, and defines them in a way that heralds the reader as an expert/5.

Quasars, Pulsars, and Black Holes: A Scientific Detective Story by Frederic Golden and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at bernoonduang.com If the Black Hole-other-end-Quasar theory is valid; and Quasars are really negative spaces with all the matter/energy of Black Holes rushing through them in all directions; if Quasars are not objects but exit ports of Black Holes wow! Then, Black Holes become WORMHOLES to ‘micro-universes.’ Imagine the aperture of the White Hole.

Several black holes may be even more massive, but the mass estimates have large uncertainties and need verification. We call these black holes “supermassive” to distinguish them from the much smaller black holes that form when some stars die (see The Death of Stars). So far, the most massive black holes from stars—those detected through. The accretion disc energy-production mechanism was finally modeled in the s, and black holes were also directly detected (including evidence showing that supermassive black holes could be found at the centers of our own and many other galaxies), which resolved the concern that quasars were too luminous to be a result of very distant objects. Apr 23,  · These jets actually appear to be superluminal, but this is just an optical illusion due to the jet making a very narrow angle with the line of sight of the observer. This is consistent with the theory that quasars contain black holes because black holes are tiny and can eject mass at relativistic bernoonduang.com: Rakshit Shah. Get this from a library!
