At the center of many galaxies lie the greatest space time warpers: supermassive black holes. With their rotating movement, they attract all the surrounding material through mass accretion into a whirlpool of matter. The ones that were trapped spin and spin in a disk around the darkness; a mixture of gas, dust and charges that move freely. The pressure increases, the magnetic forces pull…and its flaming breath erupts, a flow of energetic matter that is violently expelled. Willing to compete against light, these particles fly at high velocity into the space.
