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 …

A letter history of black holes

Credit: Cepheia / Shutterstock.com      Late in 2018, the gravitational wave observatory, LIGO, has announced that it has become the most distant and massive source of ripples of spacetime ever watched: Only since 2015 have we been able to observe these invisible astronomical bodies, which can only be detected by their gravitational attraction. The history of our hunt for these …

Honor View 20: Are Holes Better Than Notches?

Since the iPhone X, almost every Android device has a notch that allows for a slightly larger screen-to-body ratio. The trend is becoming so popular and so popular that Google has even developed Android 9 Pie specifically to support this feature. Consumers were obviously not satisfied with the cut. Many cell phones were barely distinguishable in 2018, and those with …
