Astronomers discover Ring around the supermassive black hole of the Milky Way

By Charles E. Blue, National Radio Astronomy Observatory 5. June 2019 Artistic representation of a ring of cool interstellar gas surrounding the supermassive Black hole in the middle of the Milky Way. New ALMA observations reveal this structure for the first time. Credit: NRAO / AUI / NSF; S. Dagnello Through decades of study, astronomers have developed a clearer picture …

Astronomers reveal the first visual evidence of a supermassive black hole

The impression of this artist shows the black hole in the heart of the huge elliptical galaxy Messier 87 (M87). This black hole was selected by the Event Horizon Telescope as an object for paradigm-shifting observations. Shown here is the overheated material that surrounds the black hole, as well as the relativistic jet that is launched from M87's black hole. …

Scientists are unveiling the first images of a supermassive black hole

Early Wednesday morning, it is expected that a huge collaboration of scientists will publish the first images of the black hole event horizon made from data collected from observatories around the world. Together, the telescopes have created a virtual telescope the size of the Earth itself. It's powerful enough to capture enough data from the supermassive black hole at the …

The first photo of a supermassive black hole will be released shortly

The heart of every great galaxy is said to contain a supermassive black hole – a place where everything, including light, can be swallowed to a point where there is no return. For years scientists have been struggling to capture one of these deadly masses with the camera, as the lack of light makes them almost impossible to see. Now, …

Einstein's equivalence principle tested near a supermassive black hole

Galactic center photograph. Picture credits: European Southern Observatory (ESO). The GRAVITY Collaboration, a research team of several renowned institutes, including the Max Planck Institute, the LESIA Paris Observatory and the European Southern Observatory, has recently tested part of the Einstein Equivalence Principle, namely the Local Positon Invariance (LPI) in the Near the galactic center supermassive black hole. Their study, published …

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 …

Supermassive neutron object – "reveals basic properties of matter"

Posted on February 15, 2019 Quarks, the smallest building blocks of matter, are never found alone in nature. They are always tightly connected to the protons and neutrons. However, neutron stars, which weigh just like the sun, but only the size of a city like Frankfurt, have such a dense core that a transition from neutron matter to quark matter …
