Then, they estimated how often the phenomenon would be detected in the nearby universe.
Finding this type of impact would cast doubt on the idea of event horizons, which are thought to surround black holes and swallow up any material that gets too close.‘We estimated the rate of stars falling onto supermassive black holes,’ said graduate student Wenbin Lu.‘Nearly every galaxy has one.
For some without realising what they were doing or saying, entire racial groups were discarded in one swipe.
One white male participant Jordan, 25, from Southampton, who had been single for over a year boldly stated while looking at a mixed race girl: 'I am just not into mixed race girls unfortunately.
Using recent archive observations from 1.8-meter Pan-STARRS telescope in Hawaii, the researchers scoured data from a survey accounting for half of the northern hemisphere sky over a period of 3.5 years.
This allowed them to search for ‘transients,’ or objects that glow for some time before fading out.
‘Our motive is not so much to establish that there is a hard surface, but to push the boundary of knowledge and find concrete evidence that really, there is an event horizon around black holes,’ said Pawan Kumar, a professor of astrophysics at the University of Texas at Austin.
To find out which theory is correct, astronomers from the University of Texas at Austin and Harvard University first determined what a telescope would see if a star collided with the surface of a supermassive object.
'We like to think that our preferences are something that are innate and really personal and individual to each of us.Alternatively, a supermassive black hole seed could come from a giant star, about 100 times the sun's mass, that ultimately forms into a black hole after it runs out of fuel and collapses.In the data, they searched for any transients that had the characteristics of a star falling toward a supermassive object and hitting a hard surface.‘Given the rate of stars falling onto black holes and the number density of black holes in the nearby universe, we calculated how many such transients Pan-STARRS should have detected over a period of operation of 3.5 years,’ Lu said.‘It turns out it should have detected more than 10 of them, if the hard-surface theory is true.’Instead of finding more than 10, the team did not spot any.One upset viewer also said: 'Apparently that black guy is pouting because he has full lips and his nostrils are flared??Listen don't make me get mad.' Just 9.4 per cent of white people of 5,000 polled said they would date outside their race.When cosmic material is pulled too close to a black hole, the matter is completely swallowed in an event horizon, causing it to ‘disappear from the observable universe.’ This phenomenon is illustrated above According to the researchers at the University of Texas at Austin and Harvard University, the 'hard-surface theory' is based on modified versions of Einstein’s General Relativity.
