Exploding Star Gamma-Rays - Reverse Time
|Gamma-Ray Burst in the Universe|
This is intriguing scientific research about space, time, dying stars, black holes and gamma-ray bursts. Astrophysicists at the College of Charleston in South Carolina have examined 6 of the brightest gamma-ray bursts detected by NASA. They found time-reversed light signatures. The gamma-rays seem to reverse time.
Supernovas and Black Holes
When a dying star - a supernova - collapses into a black hole, it sends out a spectacular burst of gamma-rays. Gamma-rays are the highest energy explosions ever detected. They shine "a million-trillion" times brighter than the sun. They produce more energy than anything else that emits light.
Gamma-Ray to Black Hole Mystery
A gamma-ray burst represents the formation of a black hole when a star explodes. According to the astrophysicists, odd things happen with both space and time in a black hole. The gamma-rays have a signature of brightness that fluctuates, turns around and goes backward in time. Gamma-rays are the most luminous sources in nature. They are also the most mysterious as to whether or not they're reversing time when a star explodes.
