Center of Milky Way might be a wormhole, say scientists

Scientists are creating a method to see if they can determine whether the center of our galaxy is a black hole or a wormhole that might lead to another universe.

NASA’s Chandra spots dozens of black holes in neighboring galaxy

New research conducted using NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory confirms what scientists have long suspected—that the unusual amount of X-ray sources emanating from the center of the Andromeda galaxy are the signatures of dozens of black holes.

Supermassive black holes are growing faster than thought

A new study shows that supermassive black holes at the center of galaxies are growing at a much faster rate than thought. The study suggests SMBHs do not grow primarily by galactic mergers as previously thought but by absorbing matter piecemeal.

NASA finds youngest black hole in Milky Way, 1000 yrs old

NASA scientists believe they may have found the youngest black hole in the Milky Way galaxy formed only about 1,000 years ago, and it is not very far away from Earth, only about 26,000 light-years away.

Black Hole discovered in Orion's Sword

The Trapezium of stars that make up the famed Orion's Sword of the Nebula Cluster of the same namesake have always been cloaked in mystery regarding their rapid movement. Scientists say they may have found the culprit: a Black Hole of 200 solar masses.

Is our universe inside a black hole? An inside look at new theory

Indianapolis - Are universes inside giant black holes? Is our entire universe located inside a wormhole? This is not science-fiction, but it could answer various cosmic mysteries that plague scientists across the globe (or universe?).

Black hole shoots out hot blue star, travels 1.6 million mph

Harvard - The Hubble Space Telescope has photographed one of the fastest stars ever recorded after the super hot blue star shot out of the Milky Way galaxy at 1.6 million mph (2.5 million kph) by a black hole.

Small black hole creates massive 1,000 light-year hot gas bubble

Paris - Astronomers have stumbled upon a small black hole that releases astronomical amounts of energy from powerful jets and are slamming into interstellar gas, which has created a large bubble of hot gas that reaches 1,000 light-years across.

This artist's concept illustrates a quasar, or feeding black hole, similar to APM 08279+5255, where astronomers discovered huge amounts of water vapor. Gas and dust likely form a torus around the central black hole, with clouds of charged gas above and below. X-rays emerge from the very central region, while thermal infrared radiation is emitted by dust throughout most of the torus. While this figure shows the quasar's torus approximately edge-on, the torus around APM 08279+5255 is likely positi

This computer-simulated image shows gas from a tidally shredded star falling into a black hole. Some of the gas also is being ejected at high speeds into space. Astronomers observed the flare in ultraviolet light using NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer, and in optical light using the Pan-STARRS1 telescope on Mount Haleakala, Hawaii. The light comes from gas falling into the black hole, and glowing helium from the star's helium-rich gas expelled from the system.
