There's a hurricane surrounding a supermassive black hole 75 million light-years away and astronomers have clocked its speed to calculate the black hole's mass: a whopping 660 million times the mass of our sun.
There are few things that get us more excited than the mysteries of dark matter and the warping of spacetime, but when you have both wrapped into a stunning image of an Einstein ring, you know you're onto something special.
The true nature of mysterious fast radio bursts (FRBs) may not have been revealed after all.
Astronomers have found a monster black hole, some 17 billion times more massive than the sun, in a modestly sized galaxy, raising suspicions that supermassive black holes may be much more common than originally thought.
Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope have spotted a bright galaxy located a record-breaking 13.4 billion light years away, the most distant galaxy found yet.
Powerful transient radio flashes in the universe pop off randomly and appear to defy explanation, but astronomers have made a breakthrough in pinpointing the exact source of one of these fast radio bursts.
Detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes has been confirmed, proving a critical Einstein theory.
Galaxies are known to contain stars, planets gas and dust, but one particular nearby dwarf galaxy is notable for lacking the latter -- it's astonishingly dust-free.
