Black holes may have back doors to other parts of universe: Study

Black holes may have back doors to other parts of universe: Study

Black holes are the most fascinating and strangest objects in the universe. It is scientifically proven that even light can't escape the grip of their powerful gravitational force. Until now, no matter has actually survived the trip through the black hole.

Universe crowded with black holes predicted

Universe crowded with black holes predicted

If a team of astronomers are right, then the future gravitational wave detectors are going to be busy as a beaver.

Supermassive black hole devouring cold gas cloud spotted

Supermassive black hole devouring cold gas cloud spotted

Astronomers recently spotted a supermassive black hole devouring billowy clouds of cold, marking its first direct evidence to support the theory that black holes feed on clouds of cold gas.

Formula can tell rotating neutron star's fate

Formula can tell rotating neutron star's fate

A formula taking into account the maximum mass of non-rotating neutron star has made it possible for scientists to calculate the critical mass when a rotating neutron star would collapse to become a black hole.

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are brief yet powerful spurts of radio energy lasting only a few milliseconds.

Astrophysicists detect superfast winds near supermassive black hole

Astrophysicists detect superfast winds near supermassive black hole

Astronomers have known about the existence of quasar winds since the late 1960s. At least one in four quasars have them. 

Object located around black hole 5bn light-years from earth measured

Object located around black hole 5bn light-years from earth measured

It's the most accurate measure achieved until now of such a small and distant object, and it has been achieved thanks to the so-called gravitational microlensing effect, caused by stars belonging to a galaxy between us and the quasar, and which may magnify tiny regions within the quasar.

5D black hole may 'break' Einstein's general relativity

5D black hole may 'break' Einstein's general relativity

A singularity is a point where gravity is so intense that space, time, and the laws of physics, break down.

Most luminous galaxy extremely turbulent, ripping itself apart: Study

Most luminous galaxy extremely turbulent, ripping itself apart: Study

The most luminous galaxy in the universe - dubbed W2246-0526 - is so violently turbulent that it may eventually jettison its entire supply of star-forming gas, according to a study.

Second largest black hole detected in Milky Way

Second largest black hole detected in Milky Way

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.
