A massive black hole has, for the first time, revealed its bling -- a string of star clusters arranged like a stellar String of Pearls. Continue reading →
Could the physics behind lasers help solve one of the biggest paradoxes hanging over theoretical physics? Continue reading →
If you happened to be falling into a black hole, the last thing on your mind will likely be how pretty the view is. Continue reading →
If you think you're having a bad day, spare a thought for the surviving star in a binary system after its stellar neighbor detonates as a powerful supernova. Continue reading →
Back when the universe was half its present age, supermassive black holes were feeding from a steady and plentiful diet of neighboring galaxies, the first measurement of a distant supermassive black hole’s spin shows.
Supermassive black holes could be quenching star formation in elliptical galaxies, forcing them to appear 'red and dead.'
Theoretical physicists may have stumbled onto a solution to the black hole "information paradox" -- what if a black hole's singularity isn't an infinitely dense point in space-time? Continue reading →
The renowned physicist has thrown the black hole "firewall paradox" into the limelight by suggesting black holes' event horizons be replaced with "apparent horizons." Continue reading →
