Black hole News

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 video simulates interior of stellar-mass black hole

NASA's super computer simulation allows you to peer into the inner zone of the accretion disk of a stellar-mass black hole. The simulation is based on a new study by astronomers at NASA, John Hopkins University and the Rochester Institute of Technology.

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.

NASA discovers Milky Way's youngest black hole

Scientists with NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory have discovered what is believed to be the newest black hole to have formed in the Milky Way galaxy.

Video: Stephen Hawking sucks opera singer into black hole

Famous people are often asked to star in ads, but would you believe that Stephen Hawking chose to star in an auto insurance ad? And not only that, even end the ad with an evil chuckle?

Scientists discover largest black hole blast ever recorded

Antofagasta - Scientists have announced the discovery of what they believe to be a record-breaking blast of gas and dust being ejected from a black hole more than 11.5 billion 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.

New black hole discovered in center of Milky Way galaxy

University Park - NASA announced that their Swift satellite recorded a rising tide of high-energy X-rays, revealing the existence of a previously unknown black hole near the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.

NASA's NuSTAR mission lifts off to seek out black holes

Pasadena - NASA has launched an X-ray space telescope to study black holes and other hard-to-see objects in our galaxy in more detail.

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?).

Smallest black hole may have been found

Researchers believe that they may have found the heartbeat of the smallest black hole. They were using NASA’s Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer when they made the discovery.

Black hole eradicates star, blasts 3.8 billion light-year beam

Warwick - Scientists at the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom have observed a gargantuan black hole that ripped apart a sun-like star that wandered too close. This created a beam that crossed 3.8 billion light-years to Earth.

Astronomers discover enormous black hole size of 6 billion suns

Washington - Astronomers in the United States have discovered a gigantic black hole in a nearby galaxy that has a million times the mass of our sun. This provides evidence that black holes can form before the creation of galaxies.

Scientists witness birth of black hole for first time

Astronomers, for the first time, believe they have witnessed the birth of a black hole. The black hole is believed to be a remnant of a supernova, 50 million light years from Earth, which was spotted by an amateur astronomer in 1979.

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.

Israeli scientists can kill sound waves

Israeli scientists have succeeded in creating a black hole that can effectively kill sound waves. The duration of sound vacuum, however, is just eight milliseconds.

Scientists observe black holes in same galaxy

Scientists have seen two black holes dancing together in the same galaxy. It is believed that when galaxies are close together their black holes orbit each other until merging together.

Approaching Event Horizon In The Lab?

Scientists have discovered the means of which to create a Black Hole. In a laboratory at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, one of the greatest mysteries of the universe may soon be solved.

Milky Way could hold hundreds of rogue black holes

Hundreds of rogue black holes could possibly be roaming around the Milky Way to "eat" stars and planets, according to US astronomers. The astronomers think that these black holes are invisible except for certain circumstances.

'Death Star Galaxy' Blasts Neighbouring Galaxy with a Jet of Energy

NASA astronomers have dubbed a massive black hole, the 'Death Star Galaxy' after observers witnessed it release a jet of energy that blasted right into a neighbouring galaxy far away from our own.

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
