supermassive black holes
In yet another win for Albert Einstein’s theories, scientists report the first ever detection of “Schwarzschild precession” around a black hole.
New observations reveal that an “extraordinary” optical illusion on a massive scale is making a jet from the galaxy 3C 279 appear to move 20 times faster than the speed of light.
Using another galaxy as a telescope created a trippy quadrupling effect in a rare image of an exploding black hole from the early universe.
The blazar—powered by an extremely bright black hole that can blast a hole through galaxies—is the most ancient ever discovered, sending radio signals from the early universe
“This is the strongest evidence yet found for such a triple system of actively feeding supermassive black holes.”
In May, the supermassive black hole at the core of the Milky Way became 75 times brighter in just two hours.
“When these objects merge, there is more energy produced than the rest of the universe put together.”
Astronomers have been watching the full fallout of a tidal disruption event for years.
The supermassive black holes of galaxy 0402+379 are a couple of cosmic snails.
Black holes regulate the galaxies around them.
Ten trillionths of your sun tan is the result of photons made by distant stars and supermassive black holes.
