It’s the farthest, oldest, and perhaps most mysterious object we’ve ever discovered.
An ingenious technique could enable us to witness some of the strongest gravitational waves.
If confirmed, this could indicate a remarkable progress in modern physics.
Sometimes, even a black hole can choke on its meal.
This is one slow dance.
Your childhood fantasies weren’t all that off.
Ready to sink your teeth into some black holes?
Why blow up when you can mass up?
This was thought to be impossible to undertake until not too long ago.
In the aftermath of a titanic galactic battle, a merged black hole caused some waves.
A new study offers an unorthodox explanation for how supermassive black hole formed in the early Universe.
Many more might be lurking in the galaxy.
And things are about to get even more exciting.
What we do know is that it blasts enormously powerful X-rays into the void.
Astronomers used to think black holes feed exclusively on a hot gas and dust, but it seems they sometimes like to go out for ice cream.
We may actually get to see a black hole!
At the heart of virtually every galaxy, including the Milky Way, is a supermassive blackhole that’s anywhere from hundreds of thousands to billions of times more massive than the sun. How these cosmic bodies start off is still a subject of debate.
NGC 5195 and the Whirlpool Galaxy comprise one of the most noted interacting galaxy pairs in astronomy. The two galaxies are connected by a dust-rich tidal bridge. The dust in this tidal bridge can be seen silhouetted against the center of NGC 5195. This demonstrates that NGC 5195 appears to lie behind the Whirlpool Galaxy.
Nothing can escape a black hole, not even light, any scientists schooled in modern physics will tell you. Eminent British physicists, Stephen Hawking, suggests however that information is still retained at the boundary of black holes, known as the event horizon.
