Astronomers have detected signs of an invisible black hole with a mass 100 thousand times that of the Sun around the centre of the Milky Way. The team assumes that this possible "intermediate mass" black hole is a key to understanding the birth of the supermassive black holes located in the centres of galaxies.
Taking another step forward in the country's rapidly growing space programme, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Monday successfully launched its Astrosat, India's first space observatory into the orbit.
Astronomers have detected what they believe is the long-sought radio emission coming from a supermassive black hole at the center of one of our closest neighboring galaxies, using the Karl G Jansky Very Large Array (VLA).
A new research has suggested that supermassive black holes can blast gas and dust out of their host galaxies, in fact, the black hole blowhards can eject so much of a galaxy's star-building materials that they halt star formation all together.
