The discovery of a fast radio burst (FRB) that is only the second of its kind was “a big surprise” said one scientist.
A surprise discovery in the early universe has major consequences for the evolution of black holes and galaxies.
Scientists used a “reverberation machine” to listen in on the mind-boggling dynamics surrounding black holes.
At 13.5 billion light-years from Earth, a galaxy called HD1 is on the cosmic frontier.
Quantum computing can help probe the bizarre innards of black holes, an environment that defies standard physics.
Dyson spheres encompassing around black holes could yield up to one million times more energy than those built around stars, according to a new study.
The detection confirms a key prediction of Einstein's theory of general relativity.
Ziri Younsi, a member of the Event Horizon Telescope collaboration, explains how scientists managed to photograph a black hole across 55 million light years.
MIT astrophysicist Nergis Mavalvala talks about the discovery of gravitational waves—and everything that has followed—on Motherboard’s “Space Show.”
Palomar 5, a cluster flanked with giant star tails, will be completely usurped by black holes in one billion years, scientists predict.
A wave signal from space validates Hawking’s prediction that the area of an event horizon should never decrease.
Nobody had ever seen a system containing a neutron star and a black hole. In January 2020, scientists detected two of them.
