A new study claimed that the invisible, mysterious cosmic structures known as Fermi Bubbles were created by a powerful blast triggered by the Milky Way Galaxy’s central supermassive black hole. The authors of the study believe this event happened millions of years ago.
NASA recently shared a photo showing the supernova remnant of a star more massive than the Sun after it collapsed and died. Within the image is another bright star that was able to survive the powerful supernova explosion.
NASA recently shared a stunning photo captured by its Chandra X-ray Observatory. It shows a black hole 100 times more massive than the Sun emitting high-energy jets of particles across its home galaxy.
Scientists detected strange signals originating from the center of Earth’s neighborhood, the Milky Way Galaxy. According to their investigation, the flickering signals were coming from the galaxy’s central supermassive black hole.
Scientists explained how clouds or massive clumps of cosmic material form around black holes.
The European Space Agency (ESA) is currently observing a cosmic bridge that was formed following the collision between two massive galaxy clusters. According to the ESA, the bridge is being bent out of shape by a supermassive black hole in one of the clusters.
A group of astronomers was able to solve the mystery behind the formation of x-shaped galaxies. According to the astronomers, the odd structure of these galaxies is created as their black holes continue to feed.
Scientists at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) were able to detect the closest black hole to Earth.
A new study revealed that the biggest black hole ever discovered in 2019 is not real. According to the authors of the study, the mass of the monster black hole was inaccurately measured.
A team of scientists discovered a pair of orbiting black holes that regularly produce outbursts of galaxies.
Astronomers came across a black hole that’s regularly spewing out X-ray flares. According to their findings, this strange behavior is caused by an orbiting star that’s being regularly devoured by the black hole.
For the first time, a team of astronomers was able to photograph the powerful jet of plasma and gas emitted by the collision of two massive galaxies. Based on their observations, it seems the emission from the galactic merger is just starting to get stronger.
A team of astronomers was able to uncover the missing link in the evolution of supermassive black holes.
A team of astronomers learned how the powerful outbursts of quasars can affect their host galaxies. According to their study, the cosmic tsunamis produced by quasars are enough to stop the formation of new stars in a galaxy.
The CW is likely to postpone "The Flash" Season 6 episode 16 due to the coronavirus threat.
A new study revealed that the supermassive black hole located at the center of Milky Way galaxy has been showing signs of increased activity. According to the authors of the study, they have detected fluctuations in its brightness during the past couple of years.
Researchers discovered an ancient supermassive black hole that’s aiming its particle beam at Earth.
Astronomers were able to detect the biggest explosion in the galaxy since the Big Bang.
A team of scientists has conceptualized a method that can possibly help them detect dark matter in space. According to their study, this method involves tracking gamma rays emanating from regions believed to be filled with dark matter.
Astronomers from the University of Cambridge in the U.K. have developed a new method to map out the surrounding regions of a black hole. Their method is similar to how echolocation is used for navigation.
Astronomers have discovered that the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy is creating a new type of star.
An astrophysicist previously explained how traveling into a black hole would eventually cause time to stand still. According to the scientist, this is what will happen if a person falls into Milky Way’s supermassive black hole Sagittarius A*.
A physicist explained what would happen to Earth is a small black hole with the same diameter as a coin suddenly appeared at the center of Earth. Although the entire planet would most likely not get swallowed up by the black hole, the expert noted that Earth would still be completely destroyed.
A new video explains if it would be possible for humans to visit a black hole without getting sucked in.
A controversial study proposed using a stellar engine to move the entire solar system to a different location.
Is the deaf community being left out when it comes to new advances in astronomy? It takes a while for new astronomical terms to be translated to sign language, but a team of experts is working on 50 new signs to change that.
A physics expert explained the level of energy that would be released following the collision between Earth and a black hole. He was able to calculate the energy from the potential explosion using an online calculator that computes black hole collisions.
Scientists have discovered about a hundred mysterious blinking lights from space. They believe these lights may have been emitted by alien mega-structures known as Dyson spheres.
For the first time, a team of researchers was able to detect traces of huge clouds of carbon outside young galaxies. Prior to the discovery, carbon atoms that produce these massive cocoons were only known to exist within stars.
A team of astronomers claimed in a new study that there could be a second black hole at the center of Earth’s galactic neighborhood. Based on their findings, the astronomers suggested that the secondary black hole at Milky Way’s center could be around 100,000 times more massive than the Sun.
