In yet another win for Albert Einstein’s theories, scientists report the first ever detection of “Schwarzschild precession” around a black hole.
When the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy explodes, it likely eviscerates any life close to it. But over longer distances, these bursts of radiation may help life emerge.
The odd, dusty objects at the center of our galaxy could be stars that have been unified by intense tidal forces.
The explosion stretched for hundreds of thousands of light years into space and “must have been a bit like a lighthouse beam,” researchers say in a new study.
"These enormous bubbles have until now been hidden by the glare of extremely bright radio emission from the center of the galaxy."
In May, the supermassive black hole at the core of the Milky Way became 75 times brighter in just two hours.
The supermassive black hole at the galactic core seems to have an abundance of smaller black hole friends.
Chile’s ALMA telescope array is supercharging the quest to image a black hole.
