Black hole caught spewing jets into space at nearly the speed of light (video)

A black hole shooting out gassy material at nearly the speed of light has been caught on video by a space telescope.

NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory saw an outburst from the black hole and its companion star, which are part of a binary system called MAXI J1820+070. The system is 10,000 light-years from Earth, which is relatively close to our planet in the cosmic scheme of things and allows for a detailed investigation.
