Los estudios sobre agujeros negros siguen sorprendiendo

Los agujeros negros parecen desafiar nuestra comprensión, por lo que no soprende que una vez más los astrofísicos anuncien un descubrimiento sorprendente: los agujeros negros supermasivos de giro retrógrado pueden ser más poderosos y producir jets de gas más feroces que los agujeros negros de giro “normal”. Este hallazgo va en contra de muchas teorías formuladas hasta ahora sobre los agujeros negros, pero puede llegar a explicar cuestiones como el por qué algunos agujeros negros no emiten jets.
Los jets alcanzan grandes distancias a partir de los discos de acreción que giran en torno a muchos agujeros negros supermasivos. El agujero negro puede girar, en la misma dirección que el disco (agujeros negros prógrados), o en dirección contraria al disco (agujeros negros retrógrados). Durante décadas, los astrónomos pensaban que cuanto más rápido giraba el agujero negro, más potente era el jet. Pero hubo problemas con las teorías planteadas en este modelo. Por ejemplo, se había observado que algunos agujeros negros progrados no emitían jets.
El astrofísico teórico David Garofalo y sus colegas, han estado estudiando los movimientos de los agujeros negros durante años, y en trabajos anteriores, propusieron que los agujeros negros retrógrados arrojaban jets más potentes, mientras que los agujeros negros progrados tenían chorros más débiles o carecían de ellos.
Su nuevo estudio vincula su teoría con las observaciones de las galaxias a lo largo del tiempo, o a diferentes distancias de la Tierra. Se observaron tanto radiofuentes intensas de jets, como las fuentes débiles de radio y galaxias sin estas emisiones. El término “radio” viene del hecho de que estos chorros particulares disparan haces de luz sobre todo en forma de ondas de radio.
Los resultados mostraron que las galaxias de radio más distantes son alimentadas por agujeros negros retrógrados, mientras que los objetos más cercanos relativamente tranquilos en la región del espectro de las ondas de radio, tienen agujeros negros prógrados. Según el equipo, los agujeros negros supermasivos evolucionan desde un estado retrógrado a uno prógrado.
“Este nuevo modelo también resuelve una paradoja en el paradigma de los discos antiguos,” señaló David Meier, astrofísico teórico del JPL que no participó en el estudio. “Ahora todo encaja perfectamente en su lugar.”
Los científicos dicen que los agujeros negros retrógrados emiten jets más potentes porque hay más espacio entre el agujero negro y el borde interior del disco orbital. Esta diferencia proporciona más espacio para la acumulación de los campos magnéticos, que alimenta los chorros, una idea conocida como la conjetura de Reynolds en honor del astrofísico teórico Chris Reynolds de la Universidad de Maryland, College Park.
“Si te imaginas tratando de acercarte a un ventilador, puedes imaginar que te mueves en la dirección de rotación igual que la del ventilador, esto haría todo más fácil”, explicó Garófalo. “El mismo principio se aplica a estos agujeros negros. El material que orbita a su alrededor en un disco se acercará más a los que estén girando en la misma dirección, frente a los que giran en sentido contrario”.
Los chorros y los vientos juegan un papel clave en la configuración del destino de las galaxias. Algunas investigaciones muestran que los chorros pueden retrasar e incluso evitar la formación de estrellas no sólo en la propia galaxia anfitriona, sino también en otras galaxias cercanas.
“Los chorros transportan enormes cantidades de energía a las afueras de las galaxias, desplazando grandes volúmenes de gas intergaláctico, y actúan como agentes de retroalimentación entre el centro de la galaxia y el medio ambiente a gran escala” , explicó el miembro del equipo Rita M. Sambruna, del Centro Espacial Goddard. “Comprender su origen es de interés primordial en la actual astrofísica.”
El artículo del equipo se publicó el 27 de mayo en Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

    Do you have a spam issue on this blog; I also am a
    blogger, and I was curious about your situation; we
    have developed some nice procedures and we are looking to exchange
    techniques with others, be sure to shoot me an email if
    interested.

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s
    a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable
    for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a
    developer to create your theme? Superb work!

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just
    so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is
    now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to share it with someone!

    One thing I’d like to say is always that before acquiring more laptop memory, look into the machine in to which it could be installed. If the machine is definitely running Windows XP, for instance, a memory threshold is 3.25GB. Installing greater than this would just constitute just a waste. Be sure that one’s mother board can handle your upgrade amount, as well.
    Interesting blog post.

    We stumbled over here from a different website and thought I might check things out.

    I like what I see so i am just following you.
    Look forward to looking over your web page repeatedly.

    I like how I can ask questions on here and get pretty much instant feedback, however I kind of want to be able to just share my general thoughts and ideas and have people comment on them. Does anyone know of a blogging site that could offer me this luxury? Oh, and I don’t want anything where the people that comment on it are people that know me personally, like on tumblr or facebook or something..

    I need to start up a website but i don’t want to use a free web host. I will be using the website for a webcomic but i’m not sure how to go about it. Can someone help me?.

    I just went on Blogspot and made a blog, I want to make it for invited members only. I’ve seen blogs like that, but I don’t know how to do it myself. I already made it so that my blog isn’t visible from my profile, but I don’t know what to do next..

    I’m only 15, but i’m trying to raise money to go on a expensive trip next year. I am planning on getting a summer job, but it usually only pays minimum wage. I just want other people’s opinions on whether its safe and a good idea to become a blogger to get money. thanks!.

    I want to blog about issues I don’t want associating with my ‘work’ self. How do I choose a blog host that has a good anonymity record, in other words, I don’t want it to be easy for people to match up my IP address or access my personal details.. Also, having set the blog up, how do you encourage high volume visitors?. I’ve only used LJ before and I want to try something a bit different, but anonymity is the biggest issue for me. Would welcome suggestions of good free blog hosts..

    We want to start our own blog page together on blogspot, but I just thought about us having our own separate google accounts. How can we start a blog page together where it’ll be easier for both of us to log on besides just using one person’s google account?.

    Hi. A few days ago I read somewhere that there is a website that has movies/songs etc for free downloading and they are not copyrighted. I forgot the name of the website. I think there was the word ‘nation’ in it, but I am not sure. Does anyone know about it? Thanks..

    I wonder why those servers with copyrighted content stay up. I see a lot of “don’t post any US content” but they don’t care at all about content from japan.. . Is it just that Japan doesn’t care much about their copyright laws?. . It is hundreds or maybe even thousands of servers with content from Japan but they only get DMCA warnings for US material or something that got translated by a US company.. . They also often have some content on their website, like images or small archives..

    I’m looking to spike my journalistic career and thought that a blog might be a good idea. But I also know that there are ways to set up a paypal account attached to the blog for payment to read it or donate. I guess I was inspired by the movie Julia and Julie and I want to do it on my own. Any ideas on how to get started?.

    I’m trying to use software to erase the information on my old computer before donating it. The mouse is not working on the computer. I’ve tried another mouse on the computer and it still will not work. I need to reboot my computer in order to start the disc wiper. Is there a way of rebooting my computer without a mouse? Thanks so much!.

    When trying to publish a book wouldn’t you protect your story or content with a copyright?

    I have two computers: I call one the “good” computer — it has two monitors. The other is my “junk” computer with one screen where I download a lot of stuff to it.. . If I wanted to continue using both computers but only with the dual monitors, what would I need to buy? Is there some sort of splitter I can buy that will allow me to switch between each CPU? Where can I buy one if it does in fact exist? Will I still be able to use one mouse and keyboard?.

    I’ve mistakenly changed my admin priveleges on one of my blogs to “guest”. I need the blogger people to restore it. I cannot find an actual email or contact form anywhere, and I’ve googled everything, including the Blogger Group on Google Groups, where they try to push everyone who needs support. I would gladly pay them for better service..
