Catastrophic events are quite common for stargazers and scientists. While some of the events are found to be quite common and frequently happen, some of are rarely documented. Such an event had taken place recently when the Chandra X-ray Observatory of NASA recently identified a strange and “unexplained” flash in the innermost X-ray image of the cosmos.
As described by NASA experts, this is a “completely new type of cataclysmic event” which has never seen before. As spotted by the experts of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the course of the mysterious flash is a galaxy which is located some 10.7 billion light-years away from the Earth. As the flash suddenly emerged out of nowhere and all of a sudden faded, scientists are still in a baffled condition regarding its origin, presence, and type. However, some citizen scientists have started predicting the flash to be the signals sent by aliens, residing in other planets or galaxies of the cosmos.
As unfolded by NASA official source, the mysterious flash out of nowhere erupted, setting off in vividness by a matter of 1,000 in just a few hours, and on daytime, it faded away. Following the earlier data, collected by the Hubble Space Telescope and Spitzer Space Telescope, the experts at NASA concluded that the flash is sourced from a weak, tiny galaxy, located about 10.7 billion light-years away from our mother planet. The flash source is also believed to be apparently thousands of times more vigorous than all of the stars, presented in that galaxy.
After coming across the unexplainable blaze, researchers have turned up with three possible explanations for the event, and they are:
The flash may be an outcome of a strong crash between two massive stars. If this is not the case, then there might be an amalgamation of a neutron star with one more neutron star or possible with a black hole.
The flash might also be a consequence of a gamma-ray burst event which resides ahead of the small galaxy.
The flash could also be sourced a medium-sized black hole which tore down a white dwarf star.
However, according to the scientists at Ezequiel Treister of Pontifical Catholic University, none of the all three above given explanations matches the data perfectly, and hence there is expected to be another theory behind this mysterious emerge of flash. Though up to now, no confirmed data have been given by NASA regarding the occurrence and the mysterious cataclysmic event, soon the researchers are expected to decode the mystery. The secrecy, once solved is estimated to open up various unfolded factors and pages of the celestial world, which are yet to be fully understood by scientists.
