Star orbiting massive black hole lends support to Einstein's theory
Observations of light coming from a star zipping in orbit around the humongous black hole at the center of our galaxy have provided fresh evidence backing Albert Einstein’s 1915 theory of general relativity, astronomers said on Thursday.
NASA’s telescope detects black hole that defies theoretical models
NASA’s Hubble telescope recently discovered a supermassive black hole that defies existing theories about the universe, a report said.
Black hole may have swallowed neutron star, say astronomers
Astronomers may have spotted a neutron star being swallowed by a black hole for the first time, marked by a belch of gravitational waves rippling across the cosmos.
First black hole image: What can we really see?
This week, scientists produced the first real image of a black hole, in a galaxy called Messier 87.
Picture was clear, but black hole’s name a little fuzzy
The newly pictured supermassive black hole is a beast with no name, at least not an official one. And what happens next could be cosmically confusing.
Powehi: Black hole gets name meaning 'the adorned fathomless dark creation'
The black hole that was depicted for the first time this week in an image produced in a landmark experiment has been named by a language professor in Hawaii.
Astronomers deliver first photo of black hole
Astronomers on Wednesday unveiled the first photo of a black hole, one of the star-devouring monsters scattered throughout the Universe and obscured by impenetrable shields of gravity.
In astrophysics milestone, first photo of black hole expected
Scientists are expected to unveil on Wednesday the first-ever photograph of a black hole, a breakthrough in astrophysics providing insight into celestial monsters with gravitational fields so intense no matter or light can escape.
Einstein's theory of relativity aces its first black hole test
More than a century has passed since Albert Einstein gave us general relativity, and scientists are still testing the mind-bending theory.
Milky Way's supermassive black hole may have unseen siblings
Astronomers are beginning to understand what happens when black holes get the urge to roam the Milky Way.
Giant black hole pair photobombs Andromeda galaxy
It seems like even black holes can't resist the temptation to insert themselves unannounced into photographs. A cosmic photobomb found as a background object in images of the nearby Andromeda galaxy has revealed what could be the most tightly coupled pair of supermassive black holes ever seen.
Astronomers witness star's death, birth of new black hole
In 2015, a star tracked by astronomers since 2009, suddenly disappeared. New research suggests the star collapsed and became a black hole, but avoided the explosive violence of a supernova.
Black hole hidden within its own exhaust
Supermassive black holes, millions to billions of times the mass of our Sun, are found at the centers of galaxies. Many of these galactic behemoths are hidden within a thick doughnut-shape ring of dust and gas known as a torus. Previous observations suggest these cloaking, tire-like structures are formed from the native material found near the center of a galaxy.
Black hole measured 660 million times as massive as sun
It's about 660 million times as massive as our sun, and a cloud of gas circles it at about 1.1 million mph.
