Astronomers discover 83 supermassive black holes in the early universe

Astronomers from Japan, Taiwan, and Princeton University have discovered 83 quasars fueled by supermassive black holes formed when the universe was only 5 percent of its present age was. Here you can see the impression of an artist of a quasar. In the middle is a supermassive black hole, and the gravitational energy of the resulting material is released as …

New Supercomputer Simulation Show How Plasma Jets Escape Black Holes

Visualization of a general relativistic collisionless plasma simulation. Image: Parfrey / LBNL Researchers use one of the world's most powerful supercomputers to better understand how high energy plasma escapes the intense gravity of a black hole, which swallows everything else in its path-including light. Before and after a black hole there's no return-a boundary known as the "event horizon" -and …
