A supermassive black hole is really large by its weight, and it is a billion-solar-mass object.
Space observers instantly fell in love with the "brightest supernova ever." Looks can be deceiving, there's more to it than meets the eye.
In a paper recently published in peer-reviewed Physical Review Letters, Stephen Hawking and his co-authors suggested that black holes may potentially lead to another universe. The paper contradicts the idea that black holes have ‘no hair’ saying that a so-called ‘halo of hair’ captures low-energy quantum excitations.
Nobody can see a black hole because of a number of factors. It is a known fact that nothing gets out of a black hole, including light. Hawking radiation explains how anything that falls into a black hole gets heated up as it falls through it.
Weight measurements were made by determining the speed of dust cloud orbiting the galaxy that houses the black hole.
A stunning discovery made by the astronomers discovered a supermassive black hole that weighs as much as 17 billion suns. Its location, in a thinly populated galaxy in the universe.
The satellite Hitomi lost contact with earth recently. Its ground handlers are trying to figure out the cause even as they try to control it.
Medium-sized black holes have been theorized about but not discovered; a new black hole confirms its existence.
Hawking was delivering a talk at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm when he mentioned that information may not be destroyed by a black hole.
British astronomers have hit upon five super black holes hidden under dust and gas layers.
The black hole in Cygnus Constellation about 8,000 light-years away, is feeding on an orbiting star.
The black hole powering NGC 1097 is 140 million times the mass of sun. Researchers used distribution and movement two molecules to estimate the mass of the black hole.
Researchers at University of Buffalo claim that information within the black hole can be discerned.
A new study found the link between dark matter and black hole is stronger than the black hole-visible matter link.
