What is dead don't always stay dead in space. Scientists discovered that a very specific series of events could result in burned out stars getting a quick burst of life from black hole activity.
Earth is a tiny planet in the vast universe where powerful objects are in constant movement and collision. Here’s another way the planet could meet its end in the wake of inescapable forces.
There's truly something very strange about the processes involving black holes. In a new study, researchers reveal a phenomenon where time appeared to repeat itself backward during gamma-ray bursts.
More than a century since Albert Einstein revealed his theory of general relativity, he's still being proven right. In a new paper, scientists observed a supermassive black hole's powerful gravitational pull warp starlight, just as Einstein predicted.
South Africa's powerful new radio telescope MeerKAT captured the Milky Way's center with extraordinary detail and unparalleled clarity. It's the clearest ever view of its heart, which could answer so many questions astronomers have on the Milky Way and beyond.
How fast is the universe expanding? Scientists may soon find an answer as a new study reveals the rate of the universe's expansion could potentially be measured by gravitational waves from black holes and neutron stars.
Mystery solved? Scientists discovered the smallest black hole ever recorded, reportedly the product of an extraordinary collision of two neutron stars that lit up the skies in 2017.
The first record of two supermassive black holes orbiting each other has finally been confirmed.
China's first ever x-ray space telescope launched into orbit.
With the ultra-bright pulse of X-ray light, scientists were able to turn an atom in a molecule into an electromagnetic black hole, albeit very briefly.
The star N6946-BH1 dies as a failed supernova leaving behind a black hole.
The two black holes are only about 1,500 light-years apart in the heart of Cygnus A.
Find out why this gigantic black hole is on the run.
A team of scientists from Japan has found something strange in space, specifically a supersonic space cloud traveling the Milky Way.
