A newfound giant black hole nearly as massive as 7 billion suns is dozens of times larger than astronomers expected given its host galaxy's size, researchers say.
The prospect of measuring the mass of the most massive known objects in the universe would send most people into a cold sweat, but for astronomers it's all in a day's work.
After poring over the details of the most perfect Einstein Ring imaged to date, ALMA astronomers have discovered that this distant galaxy is a frenzy of star formation.
Astronomers have witnessed, for the first time, a relativistic collision in a black hole jet millions of light-years from Earth.
Powerful jets of material spewing from the edge of monster black holes may be more likely to arise where two galaxies have merged together.
Astronomers get a first look at the conditions that may have led to the creation of most star clusters.
Astronomers have found a quartet of quasars embedded in a single cloud of cold gas, a discovery that challenges currently held theories about how these rare objects form.
