Nobel Prize in Physics to 3 scientists for working on black holes

The Nobel Prize in Physics was jointly awarded on Tuesday to Roger Penrose, Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez for their discoveries that improved our understanding of the universe, including working on black holes. Dr. Penrose received half the award “for discovering that black hole formation is a robust prediction of general relativity,” the committee said. The second half was between …

Are some black holes disguised wormholes? Gamma rays can provide clues.

Unusual flashes of gamma rays could reveal what appears to be huge Black holes are actually huge wormholes, according to a new study. Wormholes are tunnels in space-time that can theoretically travel anywhere in space and time or even to another universe. Einstein’s Theory of general relativity suggests wormholes are possible, though whether they really exist is another question. Wormholes …

Monstrous black holes the size of 100 billion suns could help shed light on the mystery of dark matter – RT World News

A new study has suggested that there may be “astonishingly large” black holes, harboring the mass of 100 billion suns. The discovery of such an enormous region of space-time could shed light on the mystery of dark matter. In the center of most galaxies there are supermassive black holes with masses that are millions to billions of times the size …

“Big bang the size of a galaxy” – the largest black holes in the observable universe can be a source of dark matter (weekend feature)

Albert Einstein described black holes as “the most perfect macroscopic objects in the universe: the only elements in their construction are our concepts of space and time”, which has inspired astrophysicists to wonder how big these paradoxical objects, these “gates of hell” are “Are” could be? A team of scientists is now suggesting that these giants lurking in the centers …

Shattered two black holes and completely changed what we know about the universe

Credit: CHRIS HENZE / NASA / SPL – Getty Images From popular mechanics Researchers have uncovered the strongest cluster of black holes ever recorded and found evidence of a previously controversial class of black holes: medium-mass black holes. The astronomers used the LIGO and Virgo observatories to analyze the gravitational waves. The confusing collision could be the result of a …

An unexpected genesis for a one-sided fusion of black holes

A one-sided merger of two black holes can have unusual causes based on a re-analysis of the LIGO data. Photo credit: MIT News A unilateral merger of two black holes could have a strange origin story, according to a new study by researchers at MIT and elsewhere. The merger was first recognized as a gravitational wave on April 12, 2019, …
