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.
The Legacy Survey of Space and Time telescope should be able to confirm or rule out if Planet X is a black hole or not.
eROSITA telescope scans the entire sky, produces comprehensive X-ray map that shows millions of objects
The objects discovered include Milky Way stars and supermassive black holes at the centres of other galaxies.
Scientists discover a huge black hole, 700 million light-years away, that eats about one sun per day
The black hole’s mass is also about 8,000 times bigger than the black hole at the centre of the Milky Way.
The collision took place 7.5 billion light-years from Earth and the black holes were about the size of Long Island.
Scientists have found evidence that either the biggest neutron star or the smallest black hole has collided with another black hole
The object is heavier than the presumed 2.5-solar-mass cap on neutron star size, but smaller than the most lightweight black hole ever observed.
Most of the dots in the image are supermassive black holes at the centres of galaxies, devouring gas and becoming so hot that the glow can be seen across the universe.
The time between each beat could reveal key information – particularly about the matter near the black hole, and its size.
While these structures have captured the imagination and attention of many scientists and astrophysicists, the source of these bubbles is still unknown.
"The flash was so powerful that it lit up the stream like a Christmas tree — it was a cataclysmic event!" said Principal Investigator Andrew Fox from STScI.
New beast: Astronomers detect another rare blue optical transient in the universe, 500 million-light-years-away
This explosion has taken scientists by surprise because of its speed and heaviness of the material outflows.
The MeerKAT captured high-quality imaging of a galaxy called PKS 2014-55 800 million light-years away.
