Rare discovery! 3 monster black holes collide

A view from several telescopes on SDSS J084905.51 + 111447.2, a system of three merging galaxies found about 1 billion light-years from Earth. The system hosts three supermassive black holes on a collision course, a new study reports. (Photo: X-Ray: NASA / CXC / George Mason University / R. Pfeifle et al., Optical: SDSS & NASA / STScI) A rare …

Mysterious mystery of supermassive black holes

In the vast garden of the universe, the heaviest black holes grew from seeds. These seeds, nourished by the gas and dust they consume, or by the fusion with other dense objects, grew in size and weight, forming the centers of galaxies, such as our own Milky Way. But unlike plants, the seeds of the huge black holes must have …

Where do black holes lead?

So you are about to jump into a Black Hole . What could possibly expect you, should you – despite all adversities – somehow survive? Where would you end up and what exciting stories could you tell if you could manage to make your way back? The simple answer to all these questions is, as Professor Richard Massey explains, "Who …

Two black holes feast more hectically – and one lies near the earth

This week scientists have described in detail two different studies on black holes, one focused on the black hole in the center of our galaxy, another in the center of a galaxy millions of light-years away. Although they are far apart, these two black holes have something in common: they are both hungry, as evidenced by their unusual consumption habits. …

Are black holes made of dark energy?

Objects such as Powehi, the recently imaged supermassive compact object in the center of galaxy M87, could actually be GEODE. The true-to-scale Powehi GEODE would be approximately 2/3 the radius of the dark region imaged by the event horizon telescope. This is almost the same size that is expected for a black hole. The dark energy region (green) is slightly …

Breakthrough Award for Fundamental Physics for Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration to Observe Black Holes

The EHT (Event Horizon Telescope) collaboration, which involves scientists and engineers at MIT, is awarded the Breakthrough Award 2020 for Fundamental Physics. The team will be honored for the first direct evidence of a black hole. Assistant Professor of Physics, Max Metlitski, and several MIT alumni also receive awards from the Breakthrough Prize Foundation. The $ 3 million physics basic …

"Galaxy Dragons" – The All-Consuming Supermassive Black Holes in the Center of Quasars

"The supermassive black hole in the center of the quasar gobbles up an anonymous amount of nearby materials, which glare and shine when they constitute an accretion disk before finally sliding down the black hole," said Hongyan Zhou, faculty member at the University of Science and Technology of China about the universe's brightest beacons; shining with magnitudes more luminosity than …

Millions of fast black holes could zoom in on the Milky Way

How are black holes born? Astrophysicists have theories, but we do not know exactly. It could be massive stars that softly implode with a floompf or maybe black holes are born in the explosions of colossal supernovas. New observations now indicate that this could indeed be the latter. In fact, research suggests that these explosions are so powerful that they …

The fusion of neutron stars with black holes may have been spied on for the first time

Scientists may have seen something that has never been seen before: a black hole that swallows a neutron star. About 900 million years ago, a catastrophic cosmic event triggered a ripple in space-time that passed through the Earth last week (14th August). The scientists observed the event both at the advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) and the Virgo, …

New model hints where rare black holes are likely to be born

Black holes are easily among the most enigmatic objects in the universe, and we still do not know how they are made and how they evolve. New research suggests a way to find a black hole & # 39; kindergartens & # 39; with the right conditions for spawning massive black hole mergers. Since we first discovered gravitational waves in …
