An international team of astronomers led The University of Manchester have found evidence of a new 'missing-link' black hole in the Milky Way galaxy, hidden in the Sagittarius constellation.
Lecture/talk: 3 May 2017, Canada. Organized by Perimeter Institute.
You've officially been chopped-and-screwed.
Back in September 2015, the LIGO experiment detected gravitational waves formed 1.3 billion years ago when two black holes merged into one. The physics is pretty straightforward but to get the measurement, scientists had to build one of the most sensitive machines ever built. Show More Summary
New referral program emphasizes high-profile streamers, invites players to wildly unfinished game.
Getting your PhD can be frustrating for many reasons. One reason is that advisers vary enormously in their quality. Some faculty have a very reliable record of happy students. Others are black holes who chew up students and never graduate them. Older scholars can more easily spot good and bad advisers but it is hard […]
Even the leftwing Vanity Fair has had it up to its neck with the constant media promotion of this Black Hole of Negative Charisma and Achievement. She manages to mix her mother's narcissism with her father's... well, what can we...
A globular cluster is a roughly spherical ensemble of stars (as many as several million) that are gravitationally bound together, and typically located in the outer regions of galaxies. Low mass X-ray binary stars (LMXBs) are systems in which one star is compact (a neutron star or black hole) and is accreting matter from a companion star.
Bursts of energy from a black hole, lava on Mars, and Jupiter's cloud tops. The post Space Photos of the Week: Galaxies That Pass Gas Together, Stay Together appeared first on WIRED.
by Lester Black Eric Salisbury at C Art Gallery Lester Black There’s a house-sized hole a hundred yards away from Eric Salisbury’s C Art Gallery. It’s one of those boxy depressions that you can see across the city, just waiting to be filled with steel, concrete and a new building. Show More Summary

Stacking up gravitational-wave “ringdown” signals from a set of black hole mergers increases the sensitivity of the signals to black hole properties. [Physics] Published Thu Apr 20, 2017
The Large Magellenic Cloud embodies a phase of the universe prior to the Milky Way when the largest number of high-mass stars were formed. For this reason, its metallicity - the proportion of its matter made up of chemical elements...
At the center of the Centaurus galaxy cluster, there is a large elliptical galaxy called NGC 4696. Deeper still, there is a supermassive black hole buried within the core of this galaxy.

Just because a black hole is enormous doesn’t mean the galaxy around it has to be. Astronomers have found two new supermassive black holes at the centers of “ultracompact dwarf galaxies” in the constellation Virgo, and they think this type of system is fairly common. Those black holes are so big...
Three years ago, a University of Utah-led team discovered that an ultra-compact dwarf galaxy contained a supermassive black hole, then the smallest known galaxy to harbor such a giant black hole. The findings suggested that the dwarfs were likely tiny...

(University of Utah) U astronomers and colleagues have found two ultra-compact dwarf galaxies with supermassive black holes, the second and third such galaxies found to harbor the objects. Together, the three examples suggest that black...Show More Summary
