A Mysterious Flash From a Faraway Galaxy
« on: April 04, 2017, 07:54:46 PM »
It was a spark in the night. A flash of X-rays from a galaxy hovering nearly invisibly on the edge of infinity.
Astronomers say they do not know what caused it.
The orbiting Chandra X-ray Observatory, was in the midst of a 75-day survey of a patch of sky known as the Chandra Deep Field-South, when it recorded the burst from a formerly quiescent spot in the cosmos.
