In 1974, Stephen Hawking theorized that black holes may not be entirely dark and that there might be a way out of it. Today, a scientist thinks that he might have just proven this theory.
A recent study claims that black holes can be wormholes to other parts of the universe.
Gamma ray bursts produced by black holes are like lasers that are capable of obliterating the Earth.
Just like the movies where every scene has background music, the universe too has an infinite loop of its own. After surveying the largest cosmic gig, NASA has finally identified the black holes that create these x-ray sounds – all this with the help of NuSTAR.
Although a supermassive black hole by itself is dark, it can collect particles from its surroundings and emit X-rays that astronomers call a form of cosmic singing.
Astronomers Aaron Smith and Volker Bromm of The University of Texas at Austin, working with Avi Loeb of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, have discovered evidence for an unusual kind of black hole born extremely early in the universe.
A group of astronomers have detected a supermassive dormant black hole devouring and shredding a nearby star via the X-rays emitted from the tidal disruption.
Scientists from LIGO has detected a second batch of gravitational waves from two colliding black holes, disproving a previous assumption that collisions produce bursts of radiations.
Famous cosmologist Stephen Hawking conducted an in-depth study of black holes. Together with his colleagues, they released a paper which says that there could be a possible exit from the believed eternal prison, black holes.
A new study suggests that supermassive black holes sometimes stray from their usual hot gas diet and devour clumps of cold gas plunging toword it.
MIT researchers develop a new machine-learning algorithm that can create true images of black holes by stitching together data from different radio telescopes around the world.
New study reveals a new class of galaxies called red geysers that host supermassive black hole winds so hot and energetic that stars can't form.
A team of astronomers, using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), has come up with a way to measure precisely the mass of a supermassive black hole sitting in the center of the galaxy. This monster black hole, tagged as NGC 1332, is said to be 660 million bigger than the Sun.
Monster black holes can usually be found at the core of very large galaxies and is rarely seen in the center of a galaxy in a sparsely populated area in the universe. The is the reason why researchers at NASA were shocked when they uncovered a massive black hole weighing about 17 billion suns in the center of NGC 1600.
