For the first time, physicists may have traced the source of the highest energy neutrinos -- sub-atomic particles with no electrical charge that race through the universe -- to the black hole at the center of the Milky Way.
A survey of 93 quasars spread out over billions of light years shows the supermassive black holes in their cores are spinning in alignment, a hint that current models of the universe may be missing key data. Continue reading →
Astronomers were excited for a massive cloud of gas to fall into the black hole at the center of our galaxy, but it survived to tell the tale. What happened? Continue reading →
Christopher Nolen's movie 'Interstellar' will be an epic space adventure encapsulating humanity's need to explore the Universe, but it's the visual effects for the movie that are garnering early attention. Continue reading →
As galaxies mature, they stop forming stars -- but why? Now astronomers are hot on the trail of finding the culprit. Continue reading →
A black hole is eating a star faster than scientists had thought was possible, and it's unleashing unusually bright X-ray signals that may help scientists understand a group of weird, superbright objects in deep space.
Are you ready to get "spaghettified"? Julian has the gooey, stretchy, bizarro physics behind a human's leap into a supermassive black hole.
A surprisingly massive black hole has been discovered in the core of a small, compact galaxy -- a finding that appears to be a weird cosmic contradiction.
