According to new study scientists may be able to spot evidence of elusive dark matter by watching for ripples on the surfaces of stars. Such vibrations could indicate that a strange, hypothetical dark-matter object known as a primordial black hole has passed through the stars.
Astronomers using NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) have captured rare data of a flaring black hole, revealing new details about these powerful objects and their blazing jets.
With the help the slitless grism on Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Camera 3 to probe the distant universe, astronomers have found supermassive black holes growing in surprisingly small galaxies.
According to scientists the powerful jets of radio waves that can explode from monster black holes at the center of galaxies may erupt from much closer to these giants than previously thought.
With the help NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory astronomers discovered the first pair of supermassive black holes in a spiral galaxy similar to the Milky Way.
According to a new study a strange, newfound galaxy may help astronomers figure out how black holes and star formation evolved in the early universe.
The Swift satellite observed a string of extremely bright bursts of gamma rays from outside our galaxy that began March 25 and lasted about two days.
NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory for the first time captured powerful stream of gas rushes to the massive black hole. The observations will help tackle two of the most fundamental problems in modern astrophysics: understanding how black holes grow and how matter behaves in their intense gravity. The black hole is at the center of a large galaxy known as NGC 3115, which is located about 32 million light years from Earth. As gas flows toward a black hole, it becomes squeezed, making it hotter and brighter.
Black holes are rarely in a quiet condition. They not only rotate but can move up and down of the home galaxy. Researchers from Brigham Young University conducted a study of this movement and came to the conclusion that both types of motion of black holes provided with energy one of the brightest objects in the Universe, such as quasars
