100 black hole jets aimed at Earth unleash controversial physics theory

Astronomers are using 100 newly found supermassive black holes as a laboratory for extreme physics experiments.

These black holes are nicknamed ‘blazars’ because they are shooting explosive jets of matter and radiation directly at Earth. The extreme environments of black holes are perfect to test physics to its limit, one of the study authors said in a statement.
