supermassive 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.
“This is the strongest evidence yet found for such a triple system of actively feeding supermassive black holes.”
“When these objects merge, there is more energy produced than the rest of the universe put together.”
“This discovery dramatically changes our view on the origin of fast-moving stars.”
NGC 3079 is spitting out particles that balloon across thousands of light years in space.
Astronomers watched as a star passed within 12 billion miles of the black hole at the center of the Milky Way and reached a speed of 15 million miles per hour.
The supermassive black hole at the galactic core seems to have an abundance of smaller black hole friends.
Black holes regulate the galaxies around them.
A single particle, born 9.1 billion light-years away.
According to astronomers, even the quietest regions of space may be populated by sky-chewing black holes.
