Scientists are uncovering how mysterious medium-sized black holes may arise from collisions of massive stars.
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 spotted a cluster of rapidly growing black holes that offer a glimpse at something called "cosmic noon."
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured a stunning new view of a galaxy with an active black hole obscured by tendrils of dark dust.
A seemingly intractable black hole paradox first proposed by physicist Stephen Hawking could finally be resolved — by wormholes through space-time.
Though scientists know there's a supermassive black hole at the center of most galaxies, they can't explain how the gravitational giants formed.
If you've ever been stuck in a nightmare traffic jam, you know that "black hole from which you can never escape" captures the feeling well.
The planet-scale array of observatories most famous for creating the first-ever image of a black hole is heading back to work.
Albert Einstein saw beyond human tribalism to an enlightened realm of tolerance. We can too: He left us clear directions for how to do it.
Take three black holes and throw them into the disk surrounding a supermassive black hole and things get really weird, really fast.
Two giant bubbles of gamma rays and X-rays that erupted from the center of the Milky Way may stem from a supermassive black hole's feeding frenzy at the heart of the galaxy, a new study finds.
Germany stopped all science cooperation with Russia over its Ukraine invasion, but space station work continues.
In a paper published today, an international team of researchers has disproved the existence of a black hole in HR 6819.
A new study shows two huge black holes locked in each other's gravity as they inevitably spiral towards a collision.
White holes are really just something scientists have imagined — they could exist, but we’ve never seen one, or even seen clues that one may exist.
A tilted black hole spinning around a misaligned axis has been discovered in our galaxy, challenging theories of black hole formation.
Scientists are using quantum computing to understand what's inside a black hole and test if our universe is a holographic projection.
A supermassive black hole masked by a cloud of cosmic dust was found at the center of an active galaxy in new images from the European Southern Observatory.
A new museum exhibit hopes to uncover the secrets behind the doodles, in-jokes and coded messages on a blackboard that Stephen Hawking kept for more than 35 years.
At the center of a black hole, matter is compressed down to an infinitely tiny point, and all conceptions of time and space completely break down.
Astronomers may have for the first time detected and measured the mass of an isolated stellar-mass black hole, a new study finds.
