Astronomers Baffled by Black Hole Spitting Out Spaghetti Star Years After Eating It

Astronomers have spotted a black hole mysteriously spitting out pieces of a devoured star several years after consuming it.

The event, which scientists have classified as AT2018hyz, began in 2018 when astronomers saw the black hole to trap an unfortunate star in its strong gravitational pull before shredding it into pieces. Then, three years later, in 2021, a radio telescope in New Mexico picked up a signal indicating unusual activity – the black hole had begun ejecting the star at half the speed of light.
