Have astronomers found the ‘missing link’ of black hole evolution?

Astronomers believe that they have discovered an enormous new black hole thought to be nearly 100,000 more massive than the sun near the center of the Milky Way, and it may be the first ever actual detection of a long-hypothesized-but-never-proven type of space-time phenomena. Writing in the journal Nature Astronomy, a team of researchers led […]

Experiment changes everything we know about black holes

A longstanding theory describing what happens to matter before it is consumed by a black hole is wrong, according to new experiments conducted at the planet’s most powerful X-ray scanner and detailed in research published earlier this month in the journal Physical Review Letters. Black holes are regions of spacetime that have gravitational fields so […]

Black holes eat stars more often than we thought

The supermassive black holes that lie in the center of most galaxies may have far more voracious appetites than experts previously believed, according to a new study that has uncovered evidence that these behemoths shred stars 100 times more often than earlier research had suggested. Such incidents of stellar cannibalism, also known as tidal disruption […]

New technique could reveal the sneakiest black holes in the galaxy

While studying the molecular gas around a distant supernova remnant, researchers at Japan’s Keio University have discovered a new way to detected “quiet” black holes – those that don’t generate an accretion disk or which are not strong enough to emit visible radiation. According to Gizmodo and UPI reports, Keio graduate student Masaya Yamada and […]
