The history of humanity could have ended December 27, 2004
The last day for all living organisms on Earth, including humans, it could be December 27, 2004, when the Milky Way in the constellation of Sagittarius sector there was an explosion of unprecedented strength of the neutron star. Universal cataclysm was marked by a number of leading astronomical centers and satellites.
Never ever observed, scientists did not encounter such a big explosion. Within two hundredths of a second, while it lasted, stood out in space, energy equal to that Sun produces over 250,000 years, according to ITAR-TASS.
The explosion occurred at a distance of 30 light years from Earth, space standards that are very close. If this distance is 10 light-years, the atmosphere of the Earth would be hit hard. In this case, there would be a massive loss of biological organisms, said a leading astrophysicist at Harvard University, Brian Gansler.
The explosion was a strong stream of first gamma rays, followed by X-rays. The earth and its inhabitants to feel the effects of an explosion of a neutron star is that many people in this day deteriorated state of health, there have been failures in the numerous devices.
Recall that recently another explosion was recorded by American astronomers. According to their reports, the explosion occurred as a result of the absorption of the huge "black hole" equivalent 300 million stars the size of our sun.
This "black hole" still continues to allocate a huge amount of gas mass equal to one trillion Suns, said the report by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration United States, the website Space.com.
The cosmic "eruption" of unprecedented scale — emission of hot gas — failed to register the American orbital X-ray telescope "Chandra".
Scientists estimate that the observed phenomenon shows that black holes are able to provide a much more severe than previously expected, the impact on the process of star formation in galaxies and the behavior of the galaxies themselves.
Caused by the black hole cosmic "eruption", according to the astronomers, lasted for about 100 million years and has led to the emergence of galaxies within two colossal bubbles, cavities, which are blown out of all the stars. Each of the bubbles spans about 650,000 light years.
