A new test of Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity has proved the 20th Century physicist right again, this time using a supermassive black hole.
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.
Six galaxies were trapped in orbit around a supermassive black hole during the early history of the universe, new observations reveal.
The magnetic fields are more than a thousand times stronger than the magnetic field used in MRI machines..
The Nobel Prize in physics has been awarded to three scientists for their work involving one of the cosmos's most mysterious, darkest, secrets — black holes.
Unusual flashes of gamma rays could reveal that what appear to be giant black holes are actually huge wormholes, a new study finds.
A team of scientists now suggests black holes could reach what they call "stupendously large" sizes, each harboring the mass of 100 billion suns or more.
For black holes, a collision doesn't have to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, new research suggests.
A cosmic gas cloud has a mysterious gamma-ray "heartbeat" that appears to be in sync with a neighboring black hole.
Astronomers might detect black holes falling into wormholes via ripples in space and time called gravitational waves, a new study finds.
Tens of thousands of planets like Earth and Neptune might orbit the giant black hole at the center of the Milky Way.
Over two dozen misidentified supermassive black holes have finally been revealed in a new, sky-scanning study.
What does it mean when a black hole suddenly stops gobbling up gas completely — and then just as suddenly starts again, hungrier than ever?
A coming sky survey will help test a wild idea — that a grapefruit-sized black hole lurks undiscovered in the outer solar system.
Astronomers have found a way to pinpoint our solar system's center of mass to within a mere 330 feet (100 meters), a recent study reports.
Two incredibly strange celestial objects whose discoveries trace, in part, to observatories at the summit of Maunakea now carry the peak with them in official names inspired by Hawaiian culture.
