Stephen Hawking’s final paper suggests black holes store information about missing matter in ‘soft hairs’

The late physicist’s very last paper offers new insight into the black hole information paradox.

If we want to find the “missing” dark matter, we have to look beyongblack holes

Dark matter makes up most of the universe — and we still don’t really know what it is.

Scientists directly image particle jet emitted by supermassive black hole devouring a star

It’s the first time astronomers have achieved this feat.

Astronomers discover the fastest-growing black hole we’ve ever known

It’s the hungriest thing we’ve ever seen.

Scientists complete most precise star map, revealing hidden details in our galaxy

An incredibly fruitful mission sheds new secrets about the Milky Way.

Astronomers discover a clump of black holes around our galaxy’s center

For the first time, astronomers have managed to confirm the existence of a black hole population surrounding the core of our galaxy.

Gravitational waves might be created at the centre of most galaxies

Looks like we can expect more gravitational waves in the near future.

Supermassive black hole sends radio echoes of its stellar dinner

Another discovery that cements black holes’ fundamental role in the evolution of the universe.

Oldest black hole found by astronomers — the gargantuan object lies 13 billion light years away from us

It’s the farthest, oldest, and perhaps most mysterious object we’ve ever discovered.

Astronomers are on the lookout for low-frequency gravitational waves generated by merging supermassive black holes

An ingenious technique could enable us to witness some of the strongest gravitational waves.

Researchers find tantalizing evidence of mid-sized black hole in the Milky Way

If confirmed, this could indicate a remarkable progress in modern physics.

Supermassive black hole spotted struggling with its galactic meal

Sometimes, even a black hole can choke on its meal.

Orbiting supermassive black holes confirmed by astronomers for the time

This is one slow dance.

Physicists make waves by simulating black hole in a bathtub

Your childhood fantasies weren’t all that off.

Nothing can escape a black hole’s clutch — and this proves Einstein’s Theory of Relativity (again)

Ready to sink your teeth into some black holes?

For the first time ever, we’ve seen a black hole being silently born — no supernova required

Why blow up when you can mass up?

Radio observatory equivalent to the size of Earth sets its gaze to the center of the Milky Way to image a supermassive black hole

This was thought to be impossible to undertake until not too long ago.

Supermassive black hole dislodged from its galactic throne travels at 5 million mph

In the aftermath of a titanic galactic battle, a merged black hole caused some waves.

Researchers found a supermassive black hole choking on its meal

Greedy!

To birth supermassive black holes in the early universe, some galaxies may have had to be sacrificed

A new study offers an unorthodox explanation for how supermassive black hole formed in the early Universe.
