http://spacescoop.org/en/scoops/2111/an-ancient-stormy-black-hole/ In the very distant past, 13.1 billion years ago, a supermassive black hole, they’re called SMBHs for short, spewed a humongous amount of galactic wind. It’s a gigantic flow of gas that blew away the material that forms stars, also called ISM or interstellar medium, the stuff betwee…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HP-5ij5xTNU From December 17, 2019. As I’m recording this video near the end of 2019, the total number of confirmed exoplanets stands at 4,104. We’ve come a long way since the discovery of the first exoplanet orbiting a sunlike star back in 1995 with 51 Pegasi b. And the reality is that the race to find new exoplanet…
