Astronomers from the University of Maryland came across a black hole shredding a star to pieces, this is one of the closest tidal disruptions in over a decade. The researchers are investigating the components behind this tidal disruption.
Researchers have uncovered a previously unknown link between the way young stars grow and the way black holes and other exotic space objects feed from their surroundings.
Researchers have uncovered a supermassive black hole that's startlingly large. Found in a recently discovered galaxy, the black hole is 30 times the size that researchers expected it to be.
Radio telescopes may be able to spot stars hidden in the galactic center of the Milky Way. Although the center of the Milky Way is a mysterious place, cloaked in dust, researchers believe that there may be a new way to clear the fog and spot stars in this region.
Scientists have discovered that supermassive black hole pairs are much more rare than originally presumed, which makes the task of measuring ripples in space-time even more difficult.
Scientists may have discovered a new, mid-sized black hole, which is huge in the world of astronomy. Before now, researchers have only spotted black holes in two sizes: supermassive and tiny.
Two supermassive black holes may be about to smash together in the constellation Virgo.
It turns out that volunteers may be good as professionals when it comes to hunting down black holes.
Researchers have made an unusual discovery. They've found two supermassive black holes in Markarian 231, which is the nearest quasar to Earth.
With the help of data from the Subaru Strategic Program with Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC), researchers are getting a closer look at DOGs (Dust Obscured Galaxies).
NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has spotted something startling. It's identified the smallest supermassive black hole ever detect in the center of a galaxy.
