If the black hole was surrounded by a swirling disk of glowing and accreting gas, then the great gravity of the black hole would deflect light emitted
We are unveiling more and more of the secrets of the Universe which surrounds us, that including black holes, a region of spacetime where gravity is so
Fastest star ever observed by astronomers is moving at more than 8% the speed of light.
The telltale sign that the black hole was feeding vanished, perhaps when a star interrupted the feast. The event could lend new insight into these mysterious objects.
Astronomers using the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT), have discovered the absence of an unstable massive star in a dwarf galaxy.
Astronomers may have seen for the first time, light from the merger of two black holes, providing opportunities to learn about these mysterious dark objects.
Astronomers have discovered evidence for thousands of black holes located near the center of our Milky Way galaxy.
Earth’s oceans are only 5% explored, outer space is supremely larger — and we haven’t explored even a hundredth of a percent of it.
ESO instrument finds closest black hole, just 1,000 light-years from Earth. Invisible object has two companion stars visible to the naked eye.
Making a black hole in a particle accelerator sounds… a bit dangerous, to say the least, but scientists think that it could be possible!
