Scientists record 'screams' of dying star
Scientists have recorded the 'screams' of a dying star, which let out periodic bursts of light as it was devoured by a black hole.
The "screams" of a dying star have been recorded by scientists for the very first time, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday.
The star let out periodic bursts of light as it was devoured by a black hole, scientists discovered.
Researchers at the University of Michigan picked up semi-regular blips - which they have likened to dying screams - in the light of the star 3.9 billion light years away in the direction of the constellation Draco on orbiting X-ray telescopes.
The blips, scientifically known as "quasi-periodic oscillations", occurred steadily every 200 seconds until disappearing completely.
They are believed to emanate from material about to be sucked in to a black hole, according to the newspaper.
