Explosive energy in the nucleus of the galaxy NGC 3034 composed 9 • 1048 J. In this case of its nucleus of galaxy was rejected the mass equal to 5,9 • 107 of the masses of the sun. At present are not known the physical mechanisms, which can explain such immense explosions. In the article is examined the new physical phenomenon, gravitational mass defect, which can explain the phenomenon indicated. This phenomenon leads to the fact that the summary mass of bodies before and after the collisions differ. Indicated we will call mass defect gravitational mass defect and it can serve as a reason for explosions in the nuclei of galaxies.
