The supermassive black hole in the center of our galaxy has started to stir and astronomers are pondering whether the uptick in flare activity has been triggered by the passage of a mysterious dust-enshrouded star.
In a galaxy, 600 million light-years away, a black hole deathmatch is ripping up spacetime, exposing some fascinating dynamics at the heart of a powerful quasar.
Has Stephen Hawking found the 'emergency exit' for information falling into a black hole?
Stephen Hawking may have just solved one of the most vexing mysteries in physics — the 'information paradox.'
Europe's XMM-Newton telescope took an X-ray scan of the Milky Way's core, capturing some dazzling high-energy delights.
Astronomers have discovered the smallest supermassive black hole lurking in the center of a dwarf galaxy around 340 million light-years away. Small it may be, but it could help to unlock some pretty hefty black hole mysteries.
Astronomers convened to present the latest findings on just about everything under the sun, and well beyond our solar system.
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.
