Cosmic Rays' Source Discovered?

Scientists have been puzzled as to the origins of cosmic rays which bombard the Earth. But over 370 of them from 17 countries, working at the Pierre Auger Observatory in Argentina believe they have discovered that source: black holes.

They found that the rays do not arrive evenly dispersed, but hail from those areas of the sky occupied by compact centers of nearby galaxies which contain black holes. The magnetic fields surrounding these black holes may speed up the cosmic rays, explaining their super energies.

Cosmic rays are fast moving su-atomic particles and nuclei from outer space. Lower energy forms are produced by the sun, stars, and exploding stars. Cosmic rays are responsible for the creation of the Fantastic Four.
