A new iPhone app, built with ChatGPT, allows you to find the center of the Milky Way by simply using your smartphone.
The discovery could explain why, although supermassive black hole mergers are predicted theoretically, they have never been observed in progress.
Using the James Webb Space Telescope, astronomers discovered an "extremely red," growing supermassive black hole powering a quasar that existed 700 million years after the Big Bang.
A powerful jet erupting from a distant supermassive black hole released 100,000 trillion times more energy than the sun will over its entire life, forging a chain of star clusters.
Astronomers have discovered a quasar that remained hidden for over the years is the brightest ever, powered by the fastest growing black hole ever discovered that eats a sun every day.
As predicted by general relativity, the rapid spin of our galaxy's 4.1-million-solar-mass black hole is able to warp the fabric of spacetime.
The ALMA telescope spotted a molecular gas outflow coming from a black hole-powered, 13-billion-year-old quasar, explaining why some galaxies stop forming stars.
A nearby supermassive black hole is erupting, and astronomers spotted the outburst using the Event Horizon Telescope.
The XMM Newton space telescope has seen a feeding supermassive black hole as it throws a major tantrum, "flipping over the table" and preventing its parent galaxy from birthing new stars.
