Using data gathered by the ALMA telescope in Chile, scientists have been able to determine a black hole’s mass with an unprecedented level of precision.
NASA’s Fermi Telescope Detects Short Gamma-Ray Burst Possibly Linked To Gravitational Wave Discovery
NASA announced Monday that its Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope had detected a brief flash of high-energy X-rays, possibly coming from a gravitational wave source.
A distant "Einstein Ring" — a product of gravitational lensing — may provide scientists some much-needed clues to the nature of dark matter.
These massive objects are usually found in much larger galaxies than the elliptical galaxy NGC 1600.
ASTRO-H successfully lifted off from the Tahegashima Space Center early Wednesday.
If confirmed, the discovery would provide scientists an opportunity to test the theory that supermassive black holes evolve from these lower-mass seeds.
The findings, published in the Astrophysical Journal, could yield new insights into the development of black holes and their behavior.
The team behind the experiment have yet to comment on the rumors.
Has The Black Hole Information Paradox Been Solved? Stephen Hawking-Led Study Offers Tentative Answers
Stephen Hawking and his colleagues offer a new answer to the question of what happens to information sucked in by black holes.
These are likely black holes or neutron stars feeding off their dead companions.
One of the black holes in the galaxy SDSS J1126+2944 is significantly smaller than the other and apparently “naked,” or starved of stars.
Belching Supermassive Black Hole Seen Giving Life To New Stars In Galaxy 26 Million Light-Years From Earth
The behavior of a supermassive black hole could affect the evolution and formation of a galaxy.
For the first time ever, scientists have witnessed the rare event, which occurs when a star falls into a black hole’s gravitational well.
This has nothing to do with actual hair.
Approximately 100,000 years from now -- a blink of an eye in the cosmic scale -- two supermassive black holes in the Virgo constellation will collide and merge.
During a lecture Tuesday, the famed British cosmologist put forward a new idea to resolve a long-standing conundrum -- the black hole "information paradox."
The black hole, located at the heart of the dwarf galaxy RGG 118, could help scientists understand how supermassive black holes form.
New observations made using NASA's Hubble telescope have revealed a self-regulating mechanism that controls the rate of star formation in massive galaxies.
The size of a black hole traditionally coincides with its host galaxy.
The supermassive black holes discovered by the team were much brighter and more active than previously thought.
V404 Cygni is a black hole located 8,000 light-years from Earth.
Astronomers used a collection of 66 telescopes located on a Chilean plateau to look outside the Milky Way.
Scientists believe that they have detected two supermassive black holes orbiting each other in closer proximity than ever before.
The black hole, which is 12 billion times the mass of the Sun, was formed less than 900 million years after the Big Bang.
Almost every large galaxy, including the Milky Way, has a supermassive black hole.
Christopher Nolan's Oscar nominated movie, released in November, was lauded for its scientifically accurate depiction of a spinning black hole.
The sun was lit up like a Christmas tree in its very first high-energy X-ray portrait.
Analysis of the black hole’s mass helped astronomers determine that it can consume more gas and produce more light than previously believed.
The black hole found inside the tiny galaxy is five times the mass of the one at the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
Supermassive black holes clustered together are more common in the universe than previously thought, according to the study.
