Chandra satellite

NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, which was launched in July of 1999, is the most sophisticated X-ray observatory built to date. Chandra is designed to observe X-rays from high energy regions of the universe, such as the remnants of exploded stars, black holes etc.

  • Why are jets emitted by a black hole instead to disappear in it ?
  • Why are these jets million light year long and thin ?
  • Matter in the jet is accelerated by a force which cannot have its counter force !
  • Which force accelerate matter in the jets in more and more distance to black hole ?
  • If the jets are million Kelvin hot, why does Chandra not show a quick cool-down ?
  • If the jets cannot be hot, why do they emit X-ray along their length as the solar corona ?
  • Why do the jets of radio galaxies contain knots but not in equal distances to the black hole ?
  • Why does the accretion disc emit X-ray also in its outer parts where it is not pressed ?

All these questions are answered in my book The Electric Universe (p 666-670).
