A black hole had a rather strange behavior after the last observation of NASA shows that (for the first time) something come out from a black hole or maybe even the black hole made it come out. It is the first observation of its kind and we still do not know what it was that came out exactly. 

We know that black holes attract matter into them or after the last observation, they tend to attract matter into them in most cases. This time, however, the Markarian 335 supermassive hole had a strange behavior, spitting something out of it. 

According to two telescopes, including the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR), they captured the moment by sending data to NASA. According to NASA, the two satellite telescopes witnessed the "launch" of the crown of a black hole far from a supermassive black hole and then emitted a huge explosion that had X-ray energy.

"This is the first time we have been able to link the launching of the corona to a flare," Dan Wilkins, of Saint Mary's University, said. "This will help us understand how supermassive black holes power some of the brightest objects in the universe."

In any case, the nature of the energy source remains unknown, according to Fiona Harrison, NuSTAR's chief investigator. But we hope that this unusual event will help us to learn more about black holes, their structure, and especially how something came out of a black hole when not even light can come out of it.

This observation has probably happened in the past because the black hole is 324 million light-years away from us.
