12 Physics-bending Facts about Black Holes

Chances are you won’t come across anything weirder than a black hole. Here’s the proof…

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.

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.

Supermassive blackholes are giants from birth

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.

Could supermassive black holes be lurking everywhere?

Astronomers have found a supermassive black hole in a completely unexpected area of space, a sparse area where massive galaxies are few and far between.

Two supermassive black holes set for a collision that will shake the cosmos itself

That’s what I call fatal attraction: two supermassive black holes are “dancing”, drawn together by each other’s humongous gravitational attraction, set for a collision that will likely send ripples through the very fabric of space-time.

Millions of supermassive black holes are hiding under thick blankets of dust and gas

Our Universe may be riddled with millions of supermassive black holes, a new study reports. The reason why we haven’t yet discovered them is because they are shrouded in thick clouds of dust and gas, and because we weren’t looking with the right telescope. Using NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) satellite observatory, astronomers from Durham University in Britain detected the

Scientists discover extremely rare quadruple quasar system

A team of astronomers has discovered a unique system of quadruple quasars. The quartet, discovered at the very edge of the universe, is one of the most massive structures in the known universe.

Newly discovered ancient Black hole is monstrously big for its age

Astronomers have discovered a humongous supermassive black hole that’s 12 billion times as massive as the Sun. What’s peculiar about it isn’t necessarily its mass – some even bigger black holes have been found – but rather its age. Observations suggest that the black hole 12.8 billion light-years away, which means what scientists are reading and observing what the black

Surprising Link Found Between Dark Matter and Black Holes

Dark matter and black holes are some of the most mysterious things in the Universe, so a connection between the two is absolutely thrilling. In a new study, astronomers report a strange link between the amount of dark matter in a galaxy and the size of its supermassive black hole. That’s an amazing new black hole fact! Most galaxies have

Mysterious object at the heart of Milky Way might be a Merged Star

A mysterious cosmic object thought to be an immense cloud of gas and dust left scientists scratching their heads after it wasn’t consumed by the supermassive black hole that lies at the center of our galaxy. After it passed a critical point in its orbit around the black hole – where a gas cloud would have typically become engulfed in
