Black Hole News
In this version of the cosmos, there is no difference between here and there, cause and effect, inside and outside or perhaps even then and now. We can all be Dr Strange
The image is the first, direct visual confirmation of the presence of this invisible object, and comes three years after the very first image of a black hole from a distant galaxy
According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the magnetic flip took place at the 1ES 1927+654, a galaxy 236 million light-years away.
While it may seem that black holes are by definition invisible, they can still be detected through the way they interact with other objects owing to their strong gravity
The last 500 orbits before the neutron stars were swallowed took less than a minute and generated as much energy as all the visible light in the observable universe.
Researchers believe that this black hole could be an ancient relic that was created before the first stars and galaxies formed.
Black holes are often detected by the radiation produced when their gravity pulls in surrounding gases, a process called accretion.
In a decade, scientists expect to be able to see emissions from the pulsar better, to back their hypothesis with evidence.
The discovery opens up the possibility of black hole mergers in globular clusters – a potential source of gravitational waves.
Blazars, or feeding supermassive black holes, are popular astronomical subjects due to their complicated mechanism of emission.
The rare and recent discovery also shows that galaxies could shut down as a result of mergers.
Some of the coalescing black holes could help scientists understand how black holes partner up before they collide.
While the idea of a black hole sucking in a nearby star sounds like science fiction, but it is exactly what happens in a tidal disruption event.
Nobel-winning black hole physics by Penrose, Hawking stands on work of Indian physicist Amal Raychaudhuri
The Raychaudhuri Equation continues to be a key tool in investigating the behaviour of black hole horizons in modern physics.
Some nuclear star clusters in our galaxy must have been formed from objects falling into black holes, the research suggests.
Stunning 'eye of the serpent' spotted by Hubble in spiral arms of a galaxy in the Hydra constellation
Only half of all the known spiral galaxies have a central bar-like structure, including NGC 2835 and our Milky Way galaxy.
It is thought that black holes are the vacuum cleaners of the Universe, sucking in everything in their paths.
This gas cloud in the constellation Aquilla 'beats' in rhythm with a black hole 100 light-years away.
Researchers scoured through over 600 spiral galaxies that are 'almost twin' but had different nuclear activity.
They have found that the supermassive black hole lives in a galaxy known as Mirach's Ghost due to its proximity to the star Mirach.
