    This is crazy. Yet so fascinating.

    Prepare to have your mind blown.

    Back in March, when NASA's Swift spacecraft first detected what scientists believed to be a black hole eating a star 3.8 billion light years from earth, many didn't quite know what it would mean. But now it seems the cosmic event not only sent a beam of X-rays shooting towards earth, but it also rejuvenated the black hole.

    Space, the final frontier. But dude, matter got sucked into the black hole and is now being shot out of it at 80-90% the speed of light. That's insane. And we are watching this.

    Looking back, I think it was Snoop Dog and everything was Snoop Dizzle D and ever thing.

    Usually it's 99.999% the speed of light. :laugh2:

    If it were I, it would be shooting out at 101% the speed of light even though physics says that isn't possible. ;)
