Potentially, the 1st "extragalactic" star found at the heart of our galaxy S0–6 appears to have taken a 10 billion-year-long journey to reach the Milky Way’s supermassive black hole.
Regular high-energy pulses of gamma-ray radiation emerging from around the Milky Way's central black hole may be coming from a blob of matter whipping around at 30% the speed of light.
New research shows gamma-ray blasting blazars could also be belting Earth with "ghost particles," or neutrinos.
The first black hole ever imaged by humanity, M87*, appears to be losing energy like a spinning top decelerating over time.
Supermassive black hole Sagittarius A* is spinning nearly as fast as it can, dragging the very fabric of space-time with it and shaping the heart of the Milky Way.
"The unprecedented Event Horizon Telescope observations are allowing us to answer long-standing questions about how black holes consume matter."
