Discovery of this black hole disk could provide insights regarding relativity theory.
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.
Black holes are mysterious objects of extreme density, with such strong gravitational attraction that even light cannot escape from their grasp if it comes near enough.
The biggest, oldest black holes in the universe shouldn't technically exist. A new study provides fresh evidence for the weird, "direct collapse" process that may have made them.
Astronomers are starting to get the goods on fast radio bursts, one of the most mysterious phenomena in the universe.
Black holes are engines of destruction on a cosmic scale, but they may also be the bringers of life.
A citizen-science project is asking people to trace spiral galaxies to help astronomers find intermediate-mass black holes.
The mysteriously quiet behavior of the Milky Way's supermassive black hole may be influenced by magnetic field lines.
In 1974, Stephen Hawking made one of his most famous predictions: that black holes eventually evaporate entirely.
The universe really likes its information — but black holes pose a huge paradox physicists can't yet solve.
For the first time, astronomers may have imaged the cool disk of gas surrounding the gigantic black hole at the heart of the Milky Way, a new study finds.
Congress can sometimes feel as distant and impenetrable as a black hole — which was the topic of a House Science Committee hearing held yesterday (May 16).
After these ripples in space and time pass through the universe, they may leave behind a sort of memory of their crossing.
The first-ever photo of a black hole amazed people across the world. Now, astronomers are aiming to take even sharper pictures of these enigmatic structures by sending radio telescopes into space.
Black holes gobble up most matter around them, but some of it escapes, spewing nearly-light-speed jets of material.
Astronomers studying black hole SagA* have to deal with the weird, frustrating little star that lit up right between Earth and the black hole in 2013.
