The Most Powerful Explosion In The Universe Recently Discovered!
In a distant cluster of galaxies, researchers have recorded the most powerful explosion in the Universe since its birth, and so far they cannot understand why it could have happened..
The epicenter of the explosion was a supermassive black hole in the Ophiuchus galaxy cluster, located at a distance of hundreds of millions of light-years from Earth. According to scientists, the release of energy from this explosion is five times higher than the previous record holder..
It was so strong that it created a huge crater in the cluster plasma, in which 15 such galaxies of the Milky Way could fit in a row. Although astronomers have confirmed the authenticity and scale of the event using several methods, they still cannot explain what could have caused such a big explosion..
At first, the researchers did not believe the data obtained, believing them to be erroneous due to the enormous amount of flash energy, but then the X-ray analysis data were confirmed using radio telescopes of several observatories..
