The Arrhythmic Beating of a Black Hole Heart
The large elliptical galaxy NGC 4696.

At the center of the Centaurus galaxy cluster, there is a large elliptical galaxy called NGC 4696. Deeper still, there is a supermassive black hole buried within the core of this galaxy.

New data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and other telescopes has revealed details about this giant black hole, located some 145 million light years from Earth. Although the black hole itself is undetected, astronomers are learning about the impact it has on the galaxy it inhabits and the larger cluster around it.

In some ways, this black hole resembles a beating heart that pumps blood outward into the body via the arteries. Likewise, a black hole can inject material and energy into its host galaxy and beyond.

By examining the details of the X-ray data from Chandra, scientists have found evidence for repeated bursts of energetic particles in jets generated by the supermassive black hole at the center of NGC 4696. These bursts create vast cavities in the hot gas that fills the space between the galaxies in the cluster. The bursts also create shock waves, akin to sonic booms produced by high-speed airplanes, which travel tens of thousands of light years across the cluster.

This composite image contains X-ray data from Chandra (red) that reveals the hot gas in the cluster, and radio data from the NSF's Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (blue) that shows high-energy particles produced by the black hole-powered jets. Visible light data from the Hubble Space Telescope (green) show galaxies in the cluster as well as galaxies and stars outside the cluster.

Astronomers employed special processing to the X-ray data to emphasize nine cavities visible in the hot gas. These cavities are labeled A through I in an additional image, and the location of the black hole is labeled with a cross. The cavities that formed most recently are located nearest to the black hole, in particular the ones labeled A and B.

The researchers estimate that these black hole bursts, or “beats”, have occurred every five to ten million years. Besides the vastly differing time scales, these beats also differ from typical human heartbeats in not occurring at particularly regular intervals.

A different type of processing of the X-ray data reveals a sequence of curved and approximately equally spaced features in the hot gas. These may be caused by sound waves generated by the black hole’s repeated bursts. In a galaxy cluster, the hot gas that fills the cluster enables sound waves – albeit at frequencies far too low for the human hear to detect – to propagate.

The features in the Centaurus Cluster are similar to the ripples seen in the Perseus cluster of galaxies. The pitch of the sound in Centaurus is extremely deep, corresponding to a discordant sound about 56 octaves below the notes near middle C. This corresponds to a slightly higher (by about one octave) pitch than the sound in Perseus. Alternative explanations for these curved features include the effects of turbulence or magnetic fields.

The black hole bursts also appear to have lifted up gas that has been enriched in elements generated in supernova explosions. The authors of the study of the Centaurus cluster created a map showing the density of elements heavier than hydrogen and helium. The brighter colors in the map show regions with the highest density of heavy elements and the darker colors show regions with a lower density of heavy elements.

Therefore, regions with the highest density of heavy elements are located to the right of the black hole. A lower density of heavy elements near the black hole is consistent with the idea that enriched gas has been lifted out of the cluster’s center by bursting activity associated with the black hole. The energy produced by the black hole is also able to prevent the huge reservoir of hot gas from cooling. This has prevented large numbers of stars from forming in the gas.

A paper describing these results was published in the March 21st 2016 issue of the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society and is available online. The first author is Jeremy Sanders from the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching, Germany.

NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, manages the Chandra program for NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington. The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge, Massachusetts, controls Chandra's science and flight operations.

Have we detected a new flavour of gravitational wave? Speculation is swelling that researchers have spotted the subtle warping of the fabric of space resulting from the cataclysmic collision of two neutron stars.

Now optical telescopes – including the Hubble Space Telescope – are scrambling to point at the source of the possible wave: an elliptical galaxy hundreds of millions of light years away.

Over the weekend, astronomer J. Craig Wheeler of the University of Texas at Austin launched speculation over a potential new LIGO detection by tweeting: “New LIGO. Source with optical counterpart. Blow your sox off!”

By optical counterpart, he probably means that astronomers could observe light emitted by the gravitational wave source. This suggests the source is neutron stars as, unlike black holes, they can be seen in visible wavelengths. LIGO researchers have long-anticipated this possibility, setting up partnerships with optical observatories to rapidly follow-up on potential signals prior to formally announcing a discovery.

LIGO spokesperson David Shoemaker dodged confirming or denying the rumours, saying only “A very exciting O2 Observing run is drawing to a close August 25. We look forward to posting a top-level update at that time.”

"Trusting your senses" is not seeing through the obvious:
What if the earth is a plane and there is no sight limit? Your brain would assemble a view like this. But without a sky and horizon. An ever rising plane. No blue sky. Only salt or whatever follows.
So the mere existence of the line of sight limit aka horizon indicates that there is a (rotational symmetry based) curvature as the natural reason for this view.

One of the nice things about the Amazon Echo and Alexa is the ability to purchase items from Amazon using just your voice. Integrating shopping with Amazon's Alexa platform was easy for the company— after all, it's their bread and butter. Google (looking to compete in the same space) launched Google Express and shopping on the Google Assistant to make it faster and easier for you to shop at your favorite stores like Costco and Target. Now, the company is partnering with Walmart to bring you hundreds of thousands of products at Walmart’s Every Day Low Prices.

With the integration, which will be available in late September, you will be able to link your Walmart Easy Recorder list with Google. Once the accounts are linked, you'll receive personalized shopping results based on your online and in-store Walmart purchases. For example, if you order Gatorade, the Google Assistant will know which size and what type you previously purchased from Walmart and will make it easy for you to purchase the same product again.

Furthermore, Google has announced that the company will be doing away with membership fees for its Google Express platform. Starting today, you will also be offered free delivery on Google Express as long as your order is above each store's minimum (usually $25-35). You can sign up¹ to be notified when the Walmart integration becomes available and you'll receive 20% off your first order.

Solar Eclipse Over Mt Shasta.......©Sean Bagshaw
So, here is an image I created of the 2017 Solar Eclipse. My son and I made a last minute dash up to Madras, Oregon Sunday night to go eclipse hunting. Our friends, Ben and Kelly, were super kind to let us park the Falcon in Kelly's parent's driveway for the night (please thank your folks again for me Kelly). This, of course, is not really what we saw. It is a photo illustration combining Monday's eclipse with an image of Mt. Shasta at night I took a few years ago. The smoke around Madras didn't allow me to get a good shot of nearby Mt. Jefferson while the eclipse was happening, and two minutes wouldn't have been enough to capture all the exposures I would have needed anyway. So, just for fun, I decided to create my own version of what the event might have been like if totality had occurred 300 miles further south. I also thought that a solar eclipse over Mt. Shasta image would go well with my Lunar Eclipse Over Mt. Shasta image from a couple years ago. I wanted to at least take a shot at representing what an awesome experience viewing the eclipse was...eerily dark, quiet and cold with the mesmerizing corona shimmering against the shadowy sky. It didn't get dark enough to see this many stars, but we were able to see Venus and a couple of the brightest stars during totality, which was astonishing in the middle of the day! The drive home was an adventure all its own. What took four and a half hours going up took almost 11 going home. We took every back road and 4x4 track we could find, but always ended up in a traffic jam wherever we went. Good time and a real life experience!

https://blog.adafruit.com/2017/08/21/adafruit-extra-credit-circuit-playground-slouch-detector-adafruitextracredit-circuitplayground/

Slouching. It happens to the best of us. Did you know you can build a slouch detector with Circuit Playground?

Circuit Playground Slouch Detector: Sit up straight, or Circuit Playground will let you know!
https://learn.adafruit.com/circuit-playground-slouch-detector?view=all

In this guide we will go through the steps to turn your Circuit Playground into a slouch detector. Using one of several pinning options along with various battery supply options, you can then wear your Slouch Detector while sitting at a desk. It will provide a warning if you, well, get a little slouchy – hopefully with reminders, you can keep your good posture and maintain a healthy back!

This project uses the sensors already included on the Circuit Playground so no additional electronics or soldering are required. You will also need some batteries and a holder for the batteries.

Have you already made a remix of this project? Let us know! We want to see all the creative ways you’ve been using Circuit Playground this month. Share your projects on social media for the community to see with #AdafruitExtraCredit #CircuitPlayground and submit them at Adafruit.com/ExtraCredit!
