Scientists may have uncovered new information about the diet of black holes.
Scientists have uncovered a spectacular flare from a black hole. The pulse of high-energy light produced by the black hole may tell scientists a bit more about the galaxy where it resides.
Scientists have discovered a massive black hole that simply outgrew its galaxy. The super-sized black hole actually grew far faster than its host galaxy, which may reveal a bit more about the evolution of these objects.
A team of astronomers have watched a previously dormant black hole wake up in a dramatic display. They've seen material fall into the black hole for the first time in perhaps millions of years.
Scientists have discovered evidence for a large population of hidden supermassive black holes in the universe. The findings could be huge for better understanding black holes in general.
The universe may be far less crowded than we thought. Scientists have created a new theory that reduces the estimated number of the most distant galaxies in the universe by 10 to 100 times.
Researchers have uncovered unexpectedly hungry little black hole monsters.
A monster black hole woke up for the first time in 26 years-and it was hungry.
Black holes may actually be ideal labs for studying dark matter
NASA has taken a closer look at the "teenage years" of quasars. Using the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have uncovered the early formative years of the brightest objects in the universe.
Using the Hubble Space Telescope's infrared vision, astronomers have unveiled some of the previously hidden origins of quasars, the brightest objects in the universe.
