Observation backs up model of Z-shaped radio sources
Astrophysicists from Moscow State University have found a new way to estimate the mass of supermassive black holes outside our galaxy, even if they are barely detectable. The results of the study were published in Astronomy and Astrophysics.
(Lomonosov Moscow State University) Astrophysicists from Moscow State University have found a new way to estimate the mass of supermassive black holes outside our galaxy, even if these holes are barely detectable. The results of the study were published in the Astronomy and Astrophysics journal
(Tata Institute of Fundamental Research) Scientists from NCRA-TIFR, Pune, and RIT, USA, have discovered the closest ever binary supermassive black hole system in a spiral galaxy NGC 7674, located about 400 million light years from Earth. Show More Summary
Earlier this year, domains owned by third-party Kodi addon platform TVAddons were transferred to a law firm. This prompted concerns, in what was then an information black hole, that something nefarious was underway. While it's clearShow More Summary
A study using multiple radio telescopes confirms that supermassive black holes found in the centers of galaxies can form gravitationally bound pairs when galaxies merge.
(Rochester Institute of Technology) Supermassive black holes found in the centers of galaxies can form gravitationally bound pairs when galaxies merge, according to a study published in the Sept. 18 issue of Nature Astronomy.
In September 2015, scientists witnessed something never seen before: two black holes colliding. Both about 30 times as big as our Sun, they had been orbiting each other for millions of years. A fraction of a second before the crash,Show More Summary
This is a post from Skymania News - Space and astronomy news and advice plus night sky Astronomers say the first black holes may have formed soon after the Big Bang. They may be behind the Universe's heavy metals and even dark matter. The post Did the first black holes form right after the Big Bang? appeared first on Skymania News. Show More Summary
The developer of Black Hole is still trying to figure out when to release on Switch. We also don't have an official fact sheet for the Switch version, so we'll have to make due with the one from the Ouya release. Fly through black holes...Show More Summary
Scientists have determined the properties of ionized jets of matter ejected by supermassive black holes in active galactic nuclei. They analyzed unexpected discrepancies between the data of high-precision observations conducted by an international network of radio telescopes and that of Gaia—a space observatory of the European Space Agency equipped with optical telescopes.
A black hole X-ray binary (BHXB) is a black hole orbiting a normal star. When matter from the normal star accretes onto the black hole, a jet of charged particles is ejected at relativistic (near-light) speeds, and these particles emit strong X-ray radiation. Show More Summary
French auteur director Claire Denis is directing a new film about exploited prisoners who are experimented on and coerced into a doomed mission to a black hole.
A black hole with a mass of 100,000 Suns may be holding a cloud of gas together.
Scientists from Keio University in Japan have unveiled the best evidence we have for an intermediate-mass black hole - and it's right in our Milky Way. Intermediate-mass black holes have eluded astronomers, who have found hints of both star-sized black holes and supermassive black holes. Show More Summary
Object 100,000 times more massive than the Sun could have arrived in a dwarf galaxy
A black hole 100,000 times the size of our sun may be hiding near the center of our Milky Way galaxy. Read more...
“The newly discovered supersized black hole resides in the center of a massive elliptical galaxy, NGC 1600, located in a cosmic backwater, a small grouping of 20 or so galaxies,” said lead discoverer Chung-Pei Ma, a University of California-Berkeley astronomer...
It's easy to picture a black hole as a kind of all-powerful cosmic drain, a sinkhole of super-strong gravity that snags and swallows passing nebulae or stars. While it is true we can't observe matter once it crosses a black hole's event...Show More Summary
(Phys.org)—A team of researchers with Keio University in Japan has found evidence of a mid-sized black hole near the center of the Milky Way galaxy. In their paper published in the journal Nature Astronomy, the group describes their study of a gas cloud cluster near the center of our galaxy and why they believe it offers evidence of a mid-sized black hole.
