Researchers say the strange movements of the objects which orbit the sun beyond Neptune could be explained not by the presence of a planet but by the presence of a primordial black hole.
Last month, we learned the black hole at the center of our galaxy was flaring. Now, astronomers have revealed more about what they think may be driving this unprecedented event.
Astronomers were looking at the Fireworks galaxy when they noticed something odd: An X-ray source which flared brightly and then disappeared only ten days later.
Astronomers examining bursts of X-rays have found a black hole which consumes material on a regular schedule of once every nine hours.
Scientists have heard a “baby” black hole for the very first time, and it sounds like “chirp.” Einstein predicted that the creation of a black hole would sound like ringing and that the pitch could signal its mass and spin, and his theory has been prov…
The team of scientists who worked to capture the first-ever image of a black hole 55 million light years from Earth is to receive a $3 million prize for its efforts.
