NASA's "Swift" gamma ray burst tracking satellite spotted a huge blast of energy from a distant galaxy last month, and astronomers now think that it was the dying gasp of a star getting shredded by a black hole.
NASA's Chandra X-Ray Observatory has spotted the youngest black hole ever observed. It's a wild thought, but in a universe built on astronomical timescales, this little guy might be younger than you.
I have enough trouble with the TV remote disappearing inside the sofa, so imagine what might happen with this spacey black hole coffee table.
A team at China's Southeast University in Nanjing have beat the Large Hadron Collider to creating a black hole. While it won't destroy the world (we hope), it acts in a similar fashion to a black hole, trapping all the electromagnetic waves that approach it and spiraling them inward.
