Not surprisingly, astrophysicists are fascinated by the super-extreme conditions at the heart of quasars, and after years of research, scientists postulated that jets of plasma emitted by quasars could not reach more than 500 billion degrees kelvin. According to the current theory, the heating beyond that threshold would cause a massive transfer of energy from electrons to photons and result in quick cooling. However, the latest measurements made possible by Spektr-R show that some mysterious mechanism brings the effective temperature at the core of the quasar to a seemingly impossible range from 20 to 40 trillion degrees—at least 10 times above the theoretical ceiling. And this particular quasar may not even be the most intense.
Looks like astronomers have just found hell. Plasma cosmology is amazing. We barely scratch the surface of it. The temp limit of that plasma may be near mugen. No atoms, no electromagnetic waves. So the plasma no longer emits infrared or light. Friction causes the heat and it “accumulates” since it can’t escape. Cool stuff.
