Black hole eats and destroys hapless star which wandered too close

Black hole eats and destroys hapless star which wandered too closeBeware of the hungry black hole. Astronomers tracked a supermassive black hole, 20 million times larger than the sun, which ate up and destroyed a star that came too close. SEE ALSO: Three baby planets hanging around a star discovered by astronomers Located nearly 150 million light years away from Earth, scientists theorise the star swirled around the black hole, emitting intense x-rays and visible light, as a jet of material spat out at a quarter of the speed of light. Such an occurrence, called a tidal disruption event (TDE), has been rarely spotted. But scientists think they happen more often. In the case of this stellar death, astronomers used radio and infrared telescopes, such as New Mexico's Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA), to keep an eye on the event which happened in a pair of colliding galaxies called Arp 299. "Never before have we been able to directly observe the formation and evolution of a jet from one of these events," Miguel Perez-Torres, from the Astrophysical Institute of Andalusia and who published a report in the journal
Science, said in a statement online.

Astronomers noticed a bright burst near Arp 299, and kept track of the occurrence over a decade, which revealed a jet of electromagnetic waves going in one direction from the black hole. A black hole is an area of space which has such strong gravitational pull that nothing can escape from it, including light. Although most galaxies have black holes, they're not necessarily out there actively eating everything up. Mattila said the discovery might just be the "tip of the iceberg" for TDEs, with the potential for more discoveries ahead. "By looking for these events with infrared and radio telescopes, we may be able to discover many more, and learn from them," he added. WATCH: These trees have lived for 2,500 years. Now they're suddenly dying

Crocodile eats beloved terrier that spent a decade taunting it 

Crocodile eats beloved terrier that spent a decade taunting it A crocodile in Australia has eaten a small dog that had taunted it for a decade and was famous for chasing the eleven-foot reptile into the water. To the horror of guests at a riverside lodge who had gathered to watch the spectacle, the saltwater crocodile did not scurry towards the water as the dog ran at its head.  Instead, as the dog’s owner, Kai Hansen, said, the crocodile "did what crocs do” and clenched the dog in its teeth before returning to the water.  Mr Hansen said he was “really sad” and had not watched the graphic footage of the incident, which was captured by onlookers.  But  he said he did not blame the  220-pound crocodile  for attacking his  15-pound dog. Casey the crocodile on Goat Island “It was something that had a high probability of happening sometime,” Mr Hansen told ABC News. "She's not doing something wrong, she's just doing what crocs do. In the early days she actually had a go at me a couple of times. These days I just throw food out from up the top and no-one is allowed to walk down there." Mr Hansen runs the Goat Island Lodge, a ramshackle lodge on the crocodile-infested Adelaide River, south of Darwin in the Northern Territory.  Guests captured footage of the dog being eaten and could be heard gasping and yelling expletives. A crocodile expert, Adam Britton, said the creature should not be destroyed for eating the dog and may not necessarily attack humans. He said crocodiles which attacked people effectively learnt how to target “large prey items”. "The dog got right up close to the crocodile's head," Mr Britton told ABC News. "That basically triggers a reflex reaction, and a crocodile, if you get that close to its head, it doesn't even think about it — it will just strike. If a crocodile attacks a person it's a little bit different because … that can potentially lead to it getting [another] large prey item, to put it bluntly." Mr Britton said the incident was a reminder to people to stay away from crocodile habitats, particularly if small dogs were present.

Leopard snatches and eats toddler in Ugandan national park 

Leopard snatches and eats toddler in Ugandan national park Ugandan authorities are hunting for a leopard in Queen Elizabeth National park  after it snatched and ate a toddler.  The three-year-old boy had been left in the care of a nanny at the unfenced staff quarters of a safari lodge in the park, when he was taken by the leopard on Friday night. Wildlife authority spokesman Bashir Hangi said the child had followed the nanny outdoors. "The maid was not aware the child followed her. She heard the kid scream for help, she intervened but it was too late the leopard had vanished with it in the bush and a search was mounted until we got the skull the next day," he said. "The hunt is on with the intention of capturing the leopard and removing it from the wild because once it has eaten human flesh, the temptations are high to eat another human being, it becomes dangerous," he added. The sun sets over Lake George near Uganda's Queen Elizabeth National Park in western Uganda, Queen Elizabeth is Uganda's most-visited national park, with tourists flocking to watch leopards roam the Mweya Peninsula, which lies beside Lake Edward. The park also hosts African buffalo, Nile crocodile, lions and chimpanzees.  The attack comes just a week after a British safari park owner was attacked by a lion in South Africa.  Mike Hodge, 71, suffered a broken jaw after he was mauled in Marakele Animal Sanctuary in Thabazimbi. Mr Hodge had been showing visitors around the park when the big cat charged him and dragged him into some bushes. Video footage of the incident showed terrified tourists screaming for help as the lion mauled its victim. Keepers eventually killed the 10-year-old lion, named Samba, and Mr Hodge was taken to hospital.   Two years ago, in South Africa, a year a six-year-old boy was snatched by a leopard at Kruger National park, but the youngster escaped with his life.  Kellan Denny was playing with his brother on a wall when the leopard sunk its teeth into his shoulder and dragged him away.  However, the leopard let go of the traumatised boy, allowing his father to rush in and carry him to safety.  The incident was the first of its kind in 40 years, according to a spokesman for Kruger National Park.
