    Post The Biggest,Brightest Cosmic Burst Seen In Far Off Galaxy !!!!



    Hey Guys A very Serious Report As it is the biggest and the brightest burst seen in the far off galaxy !!!!

    A Nasa Image showed a gamma ray burst occurs with a massive star collapsing and creating a black hole. It beams out focused light and radiation bursts.
    THe April 27 Explosion Happened 3.7 billion light years away from Earth. Had it Happened Nearby, Earth Would've Been Toast.

    Telescopes orbiting the Earth recorded the fireowrks show of a lifetime last spring when they spotted what is know as gamma ray burst in a far off galaxy.
    A 'monster burst' the biggest and brightest cosmic explosion witnessed in over two centuries was recorded on April 27. The good news is that it took far enough from earth To escape it Warth Had it had been closer earth would have got toasted.But luckly it didnt get close.
    On April 27,a blast of light fro a dying star in a distant galaxy became the focus pof astronomers. The explosion designated GRB 130427A,Tops the chart as one of the brightest ever seen. Just as the optical flash peeked Fermi's Large area telescope detected a spike in gamma rays reaching 95 GeV,the most engertic light ever seen from a burst. Telescope detected GRB 130427A For about 20 hours the longet time it is ......... Far longer than any previous bursts.
    Its light travelled 3.8 billion years before arriving at Earth about one third the travel for light from typical bursts.

    Gamma -Rays are the most engertic foam of lights. Hot matter surronding a new black hole and internal shock waves produced by collisions within the jet are thought to emit gamma rays with enrage or roughly 500,000 times the energy of visible light.

    I really thank god that it didnt reach earth.Guys i was not able to get the Images but if i get i will post it soon
    Thank you,
    Regards,
    Aman.

    Toast indeed!! Good job it happened nearly 4 billion years ago too. Long before we humans were about eh! Nice report, thanks. Just love contemplating GRBs.

    Thank you Aman, that was a very interesting summary. I don't think we want to be surprised by one of these anytime soon. Imagine what would happen if it had occurred in our own galaxy!

    Hi Aman. A very nice report from you. So long ago and so far away. I am also glad that it missed us. I am looking forward to seeing the images, if you can get them. Thanks for posting this interesting report Aman, and best of regards.
