Illustration of Cool Dust Around an Active Black Hole

This artist illustration shows the thick ring of dust that can obscure the energetic processes that occur near the supermassive black hole of an active galactic nuclei.

Researchers at the University of Texas San Antonio, using observations from NASA’s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA), found that the dust surrounding active, ravenous black holes is much more compact than previously thought.

有趣的黑洞周围的酷灰尘的插图

这位艺术家插图显示了可以掩盖活跃星系核的超大质量黑洞附近出现的精力充沛的过程的灰尘环。

德克萨斯大学圣安东尼奥大学的研究人员利用美国宇航局平流层红外天文台观测资料(SOFIA)发现,围绕活跃的贪婪黑洞的尘埃比以前想象的要紧密得多。
