Latest News About Black Holes
A black hole is a location in space that possesses so much gravity, nothing can escape its pull, even light. Learn more about what black holes are and the latest news.
Scientists have recently discovered a gigantic, mysterious structure in our galaxy - a pair of enormous gamma-ray emitting bubbles that may have been caused by an eruption from a super-sized black hole.
The young universe spiked a fever 1.5 billion years after the Big Bang, warming up as huge black holes poured out massive amounts of energy, a new study suggests.
Scientists have a new origins story for a massive black hole that spews X-rays as it orbits an even larger companion star.
A giant star in a faraway galaxy recently ended its life with a dust-shrouded whimper instead of the more typical bang.
Physicists are hot on the trail of one of strangest theorized structures in the universe.
Italian physicists in have created a miniature environment that mimics the conditions of a black hole.
A stunning photo shows a telescope in Chile blasting a bright orange laser into the sky, creating a virtual star in the heart of the Milky Way.
New images capture a galactic "super-volcano" in the massive galaxy M87 is erupting and blasting gas outwards.
The origin of monster black holes at the hearts of galaxies may have begun in galaxy collisions during the earliest period of universe.
When galaxies collide, the merger between the supermassive black holes at their hearts could create super-powerful jets of radiation, a new study suggests.
A magnetized neutron star formed from a progenitor so massive, it should have been a black hole.
A giant black hole spouting energy from inside a galaxy is acting like a cosmic magnifying glass, giving astronomers a clear view of an even more distant galaxy behind it.
The discovery of a giant, spinning black hole that was shoved around twice, causing its axis to point in a different direction from before, has led astronomers to believe that a violent collision between two galaxies was the likely cause of such strange c
Why certain stars explode in supernovas is a mystery to scientists, and a new study found that the situation is even murkier than thought because some of the light from these stars may be blocked.
A black hole has been spotted recoiling from a mysterious slingshot effect, possibly from encounters with several other black holes, a new study has found.
A stellar black hole that releases a prodigious amount of energy from the most powerful pair of jets ever seen from such a cosmic object was recently discovered. But, the real surprise is what is created by those jets.
Enormous black holes, some of the most powerful sources of radiation in the universe, apparently switch on after galaxies collide.
