Blazars

14 Apr 2012

At www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.cfm?release=2012-103&cid=release_2012-103 the WISE mission has been used to spot blazars shining in the sky. Blazars are energetic and are said to be supermassive black holes actively feeding or pulling matter in and devouring it - and these occur at the heart of giant galaxies. WISE has seen 200 of them and there are thought to be thousands more of them out there in deep space. However, the energy  released by blazars is seen in the form of jets travelling at nearly the speed of light. In Electric Universe theory blazars are interpreted quite differently.
