One of the biggest and most vexing problems in physics is how quantum dynamics and general relativity relate to one another -- but could both theories find middle-ground in a wormhole? Continue reading →
In a galaxy far, far away, two black holes have been spotted, trapped in a gravitational dance that can only end when they collide and merge as one. Continue reading →
There's small black holes and supermassive black holes, but where are all the medium-sized black holes?
Something puzzling about a very rare class of distant quasars has been uncovered -- some appear to be sucking material inwards at relativistic speeds, whereas the vast majority of quasars do exactly the opposite. Continue reading →
In an epic quest to understand how supermassive black holes grow so massive, astronomers are using pulsars to detect gravitational waves. Continue reading →
The supermassive black hole hiding in the center of our galaxy last erupted two million years ago, according to a cosmic "fossil" record of our galaxy. Continue reading →
A powerful NASA telescope has found not one, but 10 supermassive black holes. And it did so by accident! Trace explains what exactly black holes are and why the discovery is so awesome.
A powerful NASA space telescope has found not one, but 10 monster black holes lurking in the hearts of distant galaxies.
