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.
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.
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.
Astronomers have witnessed, for the first time, a relativistic collision in a black hole jet millions of light-years from Earth.
Powerful jets of material spewing from the edge of monster black holes may be more likely to arise where two galaxies have merged together.
Astronomers have found a quartet of quasars embedded in a single cloud of cold gas, a discovery that challenges currently held theories about how these rare objects form.
The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) now spans the diameter of our planet and, when the vast project goes online, astronomers will get their first glimpse of the bright ring surrounding a supermassive black hole.
