After a very powerful explosion, a bright beam of light was detected in space

According to the Science Alert website, scientists have been able to observe and document bright light beams in space throughout history.

A recent gamma-ray burst in our solar system was so bright that it temporarily blinded gamma-ray instruments in space, a science alert said Wednesday, citing NASA.

According to the site, the gamma-ray burst (GRB), considered the most powerful type of explosion in the universe, was 70 times brighter than any previously recorded event, and scientists say it only happens once every 10,000 years.

This cosmic explosion or gamma ray burst is one of the largest bursts of energy to occur in the universe.

According to “Science Alert,” they called it “the boat” or “brightest of all.”

And a “gamma ray” burst, according to the site, is essentially the first gasp of a black hole. When a massive star nears the end of its life and does not produce enough fuel at its core to support its massive mass, it forms a black hole.

Two things happen during this process. First, the explosion creates an explosion called a supernova. Second, the black hole is born as a huge cloud of leftover gas and dust that rapidly swallows everything.

What comes next has been observed many times, but the cause of its occurrence is still a scientific mystery, namely that the black hole produced two powerful beams of “gamma” rays, high energy, traveling at close speeds. Speed ​​of light, in opposite directions.

These cosmic rays last only a few seconds, but they are so bright that astronomers have documented about 12,000 “gamma” rays, one of which occurred in our solar system last October 9.

Gamma bursts happen almost every day, without warning, and scientists don’t have time to film them because their lives are so short that they don’t give us enough time to point telescopes at them whenever they’re observed.
