Spiral galaxy`s supermassive black hole weighed for first time

Scientists have for the first time measured the precise mass of a black hole at center of distant spiral galaxy.

'Magnetar' near supermassive black hole is beyond strange

In 2013, astronomers announced that they had discovered a magnetar exceptionally close to the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way.

Astronomers observe intense magnetic field close to supermassive black hole in distant galaxy

Astronomers observe intense magnetic field close to supermassive black hole in distant galaxy

Mild environment observed around supermassive black hole protects organic chemicals at centre

Mild environment observed around supermassive black hole protects organic chemicals at centre

Researchers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) have found regions where certain organic molecules somehow endure the intense radiation near the supermassive black hole at the center of spiral galaxy M77, also known as NGC 1068.

Supermassive black hole spotted choking while eating star

Astronomers have recently revealed that they have probably witnessed a supermassive black hole chocking while eating up a star.

Supermassive black hole blows molecular gas out of galaxy at one million kilometres per hour: Study

New research by academics at the University of Sheffield has solved a long-standing mystery surrounding the evolution of galaxies, deepening our understanding of the future of the Milky Way.

Supermassive black hole located 6 bn light years away found

Astronomers have used NASA`s Chandra X-ray Observatory and the ESA`s XMM-Newton to show a supermassive black hole six billion light-years from Earth is spinning extremely rapidly.

Evidence of jet in Milky Way`s supermassive black hole found

Astronomers, who have long sought strong evidence that Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*), the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way, is producing a jet of high-energy particles, have finally found it.

Supermassive black hole at heart of galaxy erupted 2 mn yrs ago

A dormant volcano - a supermassive black hole - lies at the centre of our galaxy last erupted two million years ago, according to scientists.

Astronomers probing how black holes shape galaxies` development

The scientists studied a galaxy called 4C12.50, nearly 1.5 billion light-years from Earth.

Astronomers have discovered the largest structure ever seen in space, which stretches 4 billion light-years across.

Star screams as it gets devoured by supermassive black hole

Astrophysicists have for the first time detected the oscillating signal that indicates the last gasps of a star falling victim to a previously dormant supermassive black hole.

Evidence of `middleweight` black hole found

Observation of outbursts of super-hot gas by a CSIRO radio telescope has confirmed the identity of the first known “middleweight” black hole.

Black holes grow faster than host galaxies

Astronomers have for the past many years thought that a supermassive black hole and the bulge of stars at the center of its host galaxy grow at the same rate.

Supermassive black hole kicked out of home galaxy at enormous speed

New observations from NASA`s Chandra X-ray Observatory have revealed strong evidence that a massive black hole is being ejected from its host galaxy.
