Supermassive Black Hole’s Heartbeat Still Going Strong After Ten Years

Researchers have observed the first-ever heartbeat of a supermassive black hole over the last ten years and confirmed that it is still going strong. X-ray satellite observations registered the repeated beat after its signal has been obscured by the Sun...

Star’s Orbit Around Supermassive Black Hole Proves Einstein’s Theory Right

Data collected by ESO's Very Large Telescope (VLT) has unveiled for the first time ever that a star rotating around the supermassive black hole at the core of our Milky Way moves exactly in the way Einstein's general relativity theory...

Supermassive Black Hole Jets and Their Impact on Gaseous Clouds Observed in a Distant Galaxy

By using the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA), a team of researchers found the first image picturing disturbed gaseous clouds. This is a revolutionary discovery that shows the depths of the evolution of galaxies in the Universe. The disruption was...

The First Image of a Supermassive Black Hole Still Produces Essential Scientific Breakthroughs

The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) is a vast telescope array consisting of a global network of radio telescopes. The EHT observes objects the size of a supermassive black hole's event horizon. The project's observational targets include the two supermassive black...

Supermassive Black Hole Explosion Showed That Something Can Escape Black Holes

Black holes are incredibly powerful celestial objects known for absorbing everything and anything; not even light can escape from its gravitational force. However, it looks like there is a thing that does. According to all experts from Einstein to Hawking,...

More Peculiar Objects Orbiting Close to Sagittarius A*’s Core Were Found

The center of our galaxy is occupied by an area where at least 10 million stars are enclosed into one parsec (3.25 light-years) of space. At the core, the supermassive black hole (SMBH) known as Sagittarius A* lays, with an...

Supermassive Black Hole Creates A New Kind of Star

Although a black hole is known for swallowing everything, it appears that this one is “giving birth” to a new star in the solar system, so miracles do happen. This supermassive black hole called Sagittarius A is located in the...

ALMA Catches an Impressive Clash Between Two Supermassive Black Holes

The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array has managed to record impressive images of the gas spread around two supermassive black holes. The black holes are located in a galaxy that is merging. According to the team of researchers who observed the...

NASA Spotted A Supermassive Black Hole That Generates Stars

A team of researchers made an exciting discovery with the help of the Chandra X-Ray Observatory and the Hubble Space Telescope. The team spotted a supermassive black hole located at a distance of 5.8 billion years from Earth, and it...

A Doomed Star was Ejected into Nothingness by a Supermassive Black Hole

According to scientists, approximately five million years ago, the supermassive black hole residing a the core of our Milky Way managed to send an ill-fated star away into oblivion at millions of miles per hour. The star, identified by Carnegie...
