Black Holes in a Different Light:  Black Holes in a Different Light Dr. Jim Lochner (NASA/GSFC) Outline:  Outline Why Teach Black Holes? If Black Holes Are Black, How Do We See Them? Getting to Know Your X-ray Binary How Do We Know They are Black Holes? Are There Any Web Resources Available? Concepts in Teaching Black Holes:  Concepts in Teaching Black Holes The escape velocity of light from a star depends upon the star’s mass and radius. Gravity is a basic force of nature created between objects that have mass. The speed of light, 300,000 km/s, is the universal "speed limit." The laws of motion and gravitation are utilized to study the effects of black holes on their immediate environment. Slide4:  (From: National Science Education Standards, National Academy Press, 1998.) Black Holes touch on topics in: Motions and Forces Conservation of Energy and Increase in Disorder Interactions of Matter and Energy The Origin and Evolution of the Universe Content Standards for Grades 9-12: Slide5:  Standards Used in Teaching About Black Holes (From: Benchmarks for Science Literacy, American Association for the Advancement of Science, Oxford University Press, 1993. ) By the end of Grade 12, students should know that: Increasingly sophisticated technology is used to learn about the universe. Visual, radio, and x-ray telescopes collect information from across the entire spectrum of electromagnetic waves; computers handle an avalanche of data and increasingly complicated computations to interpret them; space probes send back data and materials from the remote parts of the solar system; and accelerators give subatomic particles energies that simulate conditions in the stars and in the early history of the universe before stars formed. Slide6:  If Black Holes are Black, How do We See Them ? What You Need to Know ...:  What You Need to Know ... Black Holes Come in Two Sizes: “Stellar Mass” 5 - 20 times the mass of the sun Result from supernova explosion of massive star Massive (“Active Galaxies”) Millions times the mass of the sun Lie in centers of galaxies Make that Three Sizes (more later …) EM Spectrum:  EM Spectrum Electromagnetic Spectrum Optical:  Optical Optical images peer into central regions of other galaxies. Optical:  Optical Material swirls around central black hole. Gas near black hole heats up to UV and X-ray temperatures. This heats surrounding gas, which glows in the optical. Ultraviolet:  Ultraviolet Hubble observed pulses of UV light emitted by material as it fell into a black hole. Pulses arise from material orbiting around intense gravity of the black hole. Light pulses, lasting 0.2 s, are red-shifted from X-ray to UV, as they fall into gravity of the black hole. Seeing Matter Disappear Radio:  Radio Radio tells us about motions of particles in magnetic fields. A portion of the Very Large Array, Socorro NM Using many radio dishes allows us to see small details Radio Jets from Black Holes:  Radio Jets from Black Holes Many black holes emit jets. Material in jet moving at 0.9c. Jet likely composed of electrons and positrons. Magnetic fields surrounding black hole expel material and form the jet. Interaction of jet material with magnetic field gives rise to Radio emission. M87 - An Elliptical Galaxy:  M87 - An Elliptical Galaxy Radio shows the origin of the Jet:  Radio shows the origin of the Jet Our picture of what’s happening:  Our picture of what’s happening Magnetic field from surrounding disk funnels material into the jet X-ray:  X-ray X-rays reveal high temperatures and highly energetic phenomena. Chandra X-ray Observatory Current satellites include Chandra X-ray Observatory, XMM, and Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer X-rays from Black Holes:  X-rays from Black Holes In close binary systems, material flows from normal star to black hole. X-rays are emitted from disk of hot gas swirling around the black hole. Power of Accretion:  Power of Accretion Material in Disk gains energy as it falls into black hole. Gravitational energy is converted to kinetic energy. Kinetic Energy is converted to heat and x-rays. Up to 42% of the mass of infalling material is converted into energy. That’s 1038 erg/s ! (100,000x more than sun) Getting to Know your X-ray Binary:  Getting to Know your X-ray Binary The Groovy X-ray Binary Model How Well Do Know your X-ray Binary ?:  How Well Do Know your X-ray Binary ? What force causes material to be pulled toward the black hole ? Gravity Why is there a disk surrounding the black hole ? Gas flows according to rotational motion from orbit of star What happens to the mass of the black hole as it takes in material from the companion ? Black hole mass increases How much material is it ? (alot or a little ?) A little (compared to mass of Companion Star) What makes it possible for us to “see” the black hole ? The disk emits X-rays X-ray: A Rotating Black Hole:  X-ray: A Rotating Black Hole We expect everything in the Universe to rotate. Non-rotating black holes are different from rotating ones. In GRO J1655-40, a 2.2 ms period was discovered. This implies an orbit that is too small to be around a non-rotating black hole. This means the black hole is rotating. X-ray: Frame Dragging:  X-ray: Frame Dragging Detection of a period in GRO J1655-40 due to precession of the disk. This precession period matches that expected for frame dragging of space- time around the black hole. Credit: J. Bergeron, Sky & Telescope Magazine X-ray: Jets:  X-ray: Jets Cen A is known to be a peculiar galaxy with strong radio emission. Optical image of Cen A X-ray: Mid mass black holes:  X-ray: Mid mass black holes Black Holes with masses a few hundred to a few thousand times the mass of the sun have been found outside the central regions of a number of galaxies. Often found in Starburst galaxies. May be precursors to Active Galaxies. Optical and X-ray images of NGC 253 Gamma ray:  Gamma ray Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory Gamma Rays reveal the highest energy phenomena Jets in active galaxies emit gamma-rays as well as radio. Gamma ray:  Gamma ray Active Galaxies Seyferts - viewing the jet sideways Gamma rays are extension of thermal emission seen in X-ray. Blazars - looking down the jet Highly variable gamma-ray luminosity Gamma rays arise from lower energy photons gaining energy from fast moving electrons in the jet. Different views of same phenomena:  Different views of same phenomena How do we know they are black holes?:  How do we know they are black holes? Middle mass black holes http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap000914.html Black Holes in Binary Star Systems:  Black Holes in Binary Star Systems Black holes are often part of a binary star system - two stars revolving around each other. What we see from Earth is a visible star orbiting around what appears to be nothing. We can infer the mass of the black hole by the way the visible star is orbiting around it. The larger the black hole, the greater the gravitational pull, and the greater the effect on the visible star. Chandra illustration Velocities give us Mass:  Velocities give us Mass Gravitational effect of Black Hole on Companion star is measured through the orbital velocity of the Companion. What’s the connection ? [Insert Stupifying Equation Here] Orbital Velocity of Optical Companion Star in Cygnus X-1 Supermassive Black Holes:  Supermassive Black Holes Stars near the center of a galaxy have varied speeds and directions of their orbital motions - that is termed their “velocity dispersion.” The cause of all this chaotic behavior appears to be a super-massive black hole that lurks at the galactic center! Masses of Supermassive Black Holes:  Masses of Supermassive Black Holes Hubble Space Telescope can precisely measure the speed of gas and stars around a black hole. It discovered a correlation between a black hole's mass and the average speed of the stars in the galaxy's central bulge. The faster the stars are moving, the larger the black hole.
