Researchers in South Africa used the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) in India to discover something strange in the distant universe, so bizarre that is not explained by the current cosmological models and theories.
Astronomers have discovered a rare compact ancient galaxy hosting a supermassive black hole with an estimated mass of 2 million solar masses.
Astronomers have used NASA’s Chandra x-ray Observatory to discover a powerful jet from a very distant supermassive black hole that is being illuminated by the oldest light in the universe.
Using NASA’ Hubble Telescope, a team of astrophysicists and astronomers has found in the core of the dwarf galaxy Markarian 231 (Mrk 231) — also known as UGC 8058 — a binary black holes orbiting furiously around each other.
One of the most vexing questions in physics is what would really happen if you fell into a black hole? Now, a new radical theory, proposed by famous cosmologist Stephen Hawking, may finally solve this challenging puzzle.
Using NASA’ Chandra X-ray Observatory, an international team of researchers has discovered the smallest supermassive black hole yet resides at the center of a distant galaxy, 340 million light-years away from us.
Astronomers have managed to analyse a spectacular flare from a supermassive black hole at the center of galaxy 3C 279, a record flare that happened five billion years ago.
Astronomers have spotted five monster black holes previously hidden by dust and gas in space and they suggests that there might be millions more of them lurking around our universe.
Using the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have investigated the relationship between monster black holes that power radio-signal-emitting galactic jets and galaxies that have undergone mergers.
Far off in the universe, there’s a remote galaxy that shines as bright as 300 trillion suns and according to NASA, it is currently the most luminous galaxy ever seen.
