A research from the Institute of Computational Cosmology of the Durham University found out through testing that they might be able to study the seeds of supermassive black holes by reading gravitational waves caused by collisions of black holes.
An undiscovered black hole was recently discovered by astronomers by engaging a new technique using data from various instruments. Because of this discovery, scientists believe that there are more clandestine black holes in the universe as compared to the initial suggestions.
A new x-ray reverberation mapping technique was used by astronomers to study tidal disruptions. Tidal disruption happens when a star falls into a black hole that then leads to its death. Stellar materials are caught into the spinning disc formed outside the black holes. This behavior can now be observed using the new x-ray technology.
Scientists have said that LIGO's first detection of gravitational waves from two merging black holes is 12 billion years in the making, and there will be thousands of collisions to occur in the future.
Scientists have observed for the first time, the occurrence of "intergalactic rain" falling into supermassive black holes.
Data from the Hubble Space Telescope and two more telescopes by NASA and ESA were studied by Italian astrophysicists.
Researchers found two black hole seed candidates suggesting that super massive black holes were already big when formed during the collapse of gas clouds.
After proving the existence of Einstein's gravitational waves, researchers has once again discovered something that is not expected-light bursting from the collision of two black holes.
Researchers from the University of Cape Town and University of Western Cape have accidentally discovered a mysterious alignment of super massive black holes in a distant universe.
A collision between two massive black holes will happen sooner than expected, say Columbia University astronomers.
Astronomers recently discovered two supermassive black holes in the quasar known as Markarian 231, using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. This suggests that these massive black holes form from violent mergers.
The brightest galaxy in the Universe has been discovered by scientists using data from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE), shining with the infrared light of more than 300 trillion suns, according to a new study.
Supermassive black holes are the source of many galactic outbursts in the Universe, according to new research that helped solve a longstanding mystery.
According to researchers, the Universe should be brighter than it actually is, and now they are just beginning the figure out why that's not the case.
