The mysteries of black holes continue to elude us despite extensive space exploration. In a new video, NASA tried to explain the amazing and terrifying phenomenon. “Light echoes” from a black hole were converted into sound by the US Space Agency on Friday.
I share a video about driving space to Instagram. “Black holes are known to not let light (such as X-rays, visible and X-rays) escape from them. But the surrounding matter can produce a powerful burst of electromagnetic radiation. When they go outward, these images of light reflect off clouds of gas and dust in space. , like how the light beams from the head of the fog car scatter,” he wrote in the caption.
In the video, red circular bands are surrounded by a starry background. The blue bands highlight the inner and lower portions of the black hole system. “During sonication, the cursor moves outward from the center of the image in a circle. When it resonates through the light detected in X-rays (blue concentric circles are seen by Chandra and fast red in the image), there are tick-like sounds and changes in volume to denote the detections of X-rays and variations in clarity,” the caption further states.
According to NASA, the black hole in the video is about 7,800 light years from Earth. The black hole has a mass between five and ten times that of the Sun, and it pulls material from the companion star in orbit around it, which is “funnel-shaped into the disk that surrounds the stellar-mass black hole,” according to the researchers. . V404 Cygni is the system that contains the black hole. The new sonification of “resonating light” from the V404 Cygnus turns a black hole into sound.

“NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and the Neil Gehrels Observatory quickly imaged the X-ray light echo around V404 Cygnus,” the space agency further said. Astronomers can calculate when these eruptions occurred because they know how fast light travels and have determined the exact distance to this system. This data, along with other information, helps astronomers learn more about dust clouds, such as their composition and distances.
