Astronomers discover black holes in globular star clusters, where black holes are not supposed to exist.
Scientists discover large eddies of water in Earth’s oceans that behave like black holes: nothing can escape their pull.
All other universities quake in fear. Except MIT. They probably have countermeasures in place.
NASA has captured an image of a black hole that has become dormant after snacking on gas from a nearby galaxy.
New quantum thermometer could measure the coldest matter known and could provide new information about black holes.
We've never seen a black hole before. We know they're out there, though, and astronomers want to wire up an Earth-sized telescope to get a picture.
The last person anyone would expect to show up in a TV ad is the legendary Stephen Hawking, one of the leading thinkers in theoretical physicists.
Astronomers have found something more interesting at the center of our Milky Way galaxy than just a black hole: a star orbiting that black hole at the record-breaking speed of 3,100 miles per second. It takes less than twelve years to make one full orbit, but its speed isn't its only scientifically interesting aspect.
The WISE space-based infrared survey telescope has completed two surveys of the sky in the infrared, revealing millions of new supermassive (and ravenous) black holes called quasars. And we weren't exactly looking for Hot DOGs out there, but we found a bunch of 'em anyway.
To say that the newly discovered Phoenix Cluster of galaxies is "big" would be an understatement. In its entirety, the Phoenix Cluster is estimated to weigh twenty-five hundred thousand million times more than our sun, with a black hole at the center that's eating a sun a week, and Phoenix is pumping out baby stars like nobody's business.
