Black hole in Milky way galaxy is spitting out planets

Black Hole milky way
Black Holes are a cosmic phenomenon which evokes awe and foreboding at the same time. At times a star comes close to a black hole, and it gets ripped off by the immense gravity which sends a long streamer of gas into the outer...

Milky Way black hole is shredding stars and throwing cosmic spitballs of the size of planet

Black Holes are a cosmic phenomenon which evokes awe and foreboding at the same time. At times a star comes close to a black hole, and it gets ripped off by the immense gravity which sends a long streamer of gas into the outer...

NASA Chandra X-ray Observatory captures colliding galaxies merge into massive black hole

Colliding galaxy clusters are events which cause ripples in the fabric of both space and time. Supermassive black holes are also epoch-making events. So when all the three are linked together, what will be the consequence of such a union? Astronomers after combining the...

NASA launching X-ray polarization mission to study black holes more closely

NASA Black hole
NASA is launching an ambitious mission to study the origin and the nature of black holes. The mission titled Imaging X-Ray Polarimetry Explorer envisages sending three space telescopes with powerful cameras which will be able to measure the polarization of the cosmic X-rays produced by...

Black hole swallows star nearly 100 million times massive than Sun

Black hole swallows star
Black Hole is an enigma in itself and if you are watching a supermassive black hole ripping apart a star, you should consider yourself lucky enough to be witnessing a rare celestial occurrence. Queen's University Belfast (QUB) is involved in solving the mystery of...

New theory suggests Matter may pass right through Black Holes

Black Holes
A new research paper has surfaced speculating a possibility that matter may survive a fall into the deep center of a black hole. The theory has been prepared by astrophysicists from University of Lisbon and University of Valencia located in Spain and Portugal respectively. According...

New technology boosts LIGO capability for better detection of gravitational waves

Researchers from MIT and Australian National University has developed a new technology to upgrade the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO). It will help LIGO to become more sensitive to gravitational waves and detect around 1,000 mergers of massive black holes annually. Scientists have injected...

Japanese astronomers discover second largest black hole in Milky Way

second largest black hole
Astronomers contend that they might have found the second largest black hole in the Milky Way, which is said to have a mass nearly 100,000 times that of the sun. The invisible black hole was unearthed by the Nobeyama 45-m Radio Telescope located in...

Black Hole activity can be observed using 20 cm home-use telescopes, says scientists

Black Hole
Black Hole is an enormous and serious thing that is reserved for high-end astronomers, and the common man could hardly dream of ever seeing one. However, an international team reports that visible light can observe phenomena like the black hole during outbursts and the...

NASA celebrates Black Hole Friday by uploading new images of Black Holes

Black Hole
When people were swooning over deals and offers that were up for grabs on Black Friday, NASA shared dramatic images of Black Holes; NASA has its way of celebrating #BlackHoleFriday. Recently, NASA has observed flares of X-Rays from a black hole. This goes against the...

Indian origin astronomer led group dicovers Black Hole 5,000 times vast than our Sun

Black Hole
Some evidence for a new intermediate-mass black hole was discovered by an Indo-American-led team of astronomers from the University of Maryland (UMD) and NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. The mass black hole is said to be about 5,000 times the mass of the Sun...

Research suggests object is not lost when it enters Black Hole Dark Matter

Information is not lost when it enters Black Hole says research
A new research study is challenging earlier claims that black hole information is lost for good. Authors of a research work published in Physical Review Letters are convinced that it is possible to reconstruct black hole information. Physicists have been debating for nearly 40...
