TESS Catches its First Star-destroying Black Hole

Sep 25, 2019

NASA recently came out with a brand-new discovery that differs from what you’d expect. No, they didn’t come up with footage of aliens or any new metals that fell from space, instead, they came across a miraculous event known as a tidal disruption event or a TDE for short. This is the official name for when a Black Hole devours a stellar body, and in this case, the Black Hole completely swallowed up a star that was the same size as our own Sun.
This event was recorded by NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, also known as TESS, and it was all thanks to the worldwide network of telescopes known as ASAS-SN (All-Sky Automated Survey for the Supernovae). We now know how TDEs work and more importantly how it can actually happen in the first place and why.
Getting a direct insight on how these outbursts happen in the first place is extremely good for us as we can get ready in case such a cataclysmic event approaches us. TESS was already monitoring the skies but a couple of days before the event they realized what is happening and immediately booted up the ASAS-SN telescope and pointed it towards the Tidal Disruption Event.

Have you witnessed an unidentified flying object?
