In a major discovery, scientists have succeeded in detecting rare crash of two mismatched black holes for the first time ever. On April 12, 2019, a signal of space-time ripples was picked up by gravitational wave detectors. These ripples were caused by colliding black holes. The scientists then studied the detection closely and found that the detection did not match the signals seen by them so far.Apr 21, 2020, 11:05 AM IST
The researchers detected the collisions after re-analyzing the gravitational wave data obtained by the LIGO.Dec 05, 2018, 12:10 PM IST
Scientists have developed a new technology that can listen to background humming of deep space and unveil thousands of hidden black hole collisions missed by gravitational-wave detectors.Apr 18, 2018, 15:45 PM IST
There may be tens of thousands of black holes at the centre of the Milky Way Galaxy, say scientists who have discovered a dozen of them, lending support to a decades-old prediction.Apr 05, 2018, 12:57 PM IST
At the center of each of these galaxies – like virtually every other galaxy – lies a supermassive black hole, an area of space with an exceptionally high gravitational field.Feb 26, 2018, 15:24 PM IST
The dwarf galaxies under observation were still accumulating gas which should re-start star formation in a red, dead galaxy but wasn't.Jan 10, 2018, 17:46 PM IST
The energy pouring into a galaxy from an active galactic nucleus is thought to turn off star formation by heating and dispelling the gas that would otherwise condense into stars.Jan 02, 2018, 14:15 PM IST
The researchers found the magnetic energy around the black hole is about 400 times lower than previous crude estimates.

Calculations show that certain types of dark matter could form giant clouds around astrophysical black holes.Oct 04, 2017, 17:48 PM IST
The latest observation was made on August 14, 2017. It's the first gravitational wave signal recorded by the Virgo detector.Sep 28, 2017, 09:56 AM IST
The study published in the journal Nature Astronomy sheds light on a class of black holes having a mass upwards of one million times the mass of the Sun.
The new research was an attempt to interpret the gravitational wave detections through the lens of what is known about galaxy formation and to form a framework for understanding future occurrences.Aug 09, 2017, 19:26 PM IST
Last year, an international team of researchers detected the existence of gravitational waves, confirming German physicist Albert Einstein's 100-year-old prediction and astonishing the scientific community.Jun 28, 2017, 16:45 PM IST
SOFIA flies above 99 percent of the Earth's water vapour, enabling the research group to characterise the properties of the torus-shaped dust structures at far-infrared wavelengths.Jun 14, 2017, 12:26 PM IST
When a black hole swallows too much, the excess matter is converted into two jet-flows perpendicular to the accretion disk of the black hole, which is like a glutton with a bloated belly belching.May 30, 2017, 00:45 AM IST
