Black hole generate three elusive high-energy particles

The origin of thee high-energy particles have been puzzling scientist for years. They are the ultrahigh energy cosmic rays, gamma rays and cosmic neutrinos. A news study suggests they may have a common origin: the dreadful black holes. Black holes emanate energy jets that generate the ultrahigh energy cosmic rays. Some of these rays interact with cosmic gas to produce the neutrinos, and other rays interact with photons to generate gamma rays. Scientists reached this conclusion after using computer simulations correlated with real astrophysical observations.
