We look at the most powerful storms on earth to be the tornado and hurricane but somewhere else in the universe our most powerful storms look like a lazy breeze on a Sunny Afternoon. Our universe has always amazed me on what is going on past the Earth. Scientists have discovered an amazing wind just outside a Black Hole.
NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory has reportedly recorded the fastest winds in the universe, discovering a black hole that produces winds in excess of 20 million miles per hour.
The winds, recorded by a team utilizing NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, recorded speed upwards of 20 million miles per hour from the stellar-mass black hole. The recorded speed amounts to 3 percent of the speed of light, or nearly 10 times faster than had ever been seen from a stellar-mass black hole, according to astronomers.
“This is like the cosmic equivalent of winds from a Category 5 hurricane,” said study lead author Ashley King, of the University of Michigan, in a statement. “We weren’t expecting to see such powerful winds from a black hole like this.”
This subject is amazing...Question: It looks as if the strongest winds occurred around the event horizon, That being the case would this be on top of the massive gravitational pull of the black hole that would cause spaghettification. Since wind has no effect on light then the light would be able to escape the event horizon.
