The Long Road To Understanding Black Holes

Black holes continue to present a large number of mysteries despite decades of research that sought to uncover more details about them. We know a lot about them in the present, but there is more to learn. Black holes tend to form when major stars…

Some Black Holes May Mark The Existence Of Past Universes

One of the most controversial theories in the world of science is related to the formation of the universe. The theory challenges the belief that the Big Bang isn’t the start of the universe, as it is generally agreed, and argues that it was merely…

The Impossible Has Happened! Black Holes Collision Detected

The largest black hole collision ever detected was directly recorded by the LIGO and VIRGO Scientific Collaboration, including scientists from The Australian National University (ANU). The Discovery The signal in cause was a short gravitational wave, GW190521, and it was captured by the LIGO and…

New Observations Confirm The Formation Of Accretion Disks Around Black Holes

Stars that get to close to supermassive black holes will encounter savage tidal forces which tear them into pieces, forcing the release of a flare of radiation as the material is absorbed by the black hole. A new study elaborated by a team of astronomers…
