Mystery Blob Detected Hidden Deep Inside a Supernova –“Not a Pulsar or Black Hole” | The Daily Galaxy

In the fall of 1967, Princeton’s great quantum physicist, John Archibald Wheeler was giving a lecture on pulsars at a conference where he was arguing that we should consider the possibility that the center of a pulsar is a gravitationally completely collapsed object. He remarked that one couldn’t keep saying “gravitationally completely collapsed object” over and over. That we […]

A New State of Matter –“Black Hole Physics of Strange Metals” | The Daily Galaxy

Not only does God play dice but… he sometimes throws them where they cannot be seen,” said Stephen Hawking about the paradoxical physics of black Holes. Welcome to the bizarre quantum world of “strange metals” –a new state of matter. “The fact that we call them strange metals should tell you how well we understand […]

“Something Completely Unexpected” –Mysterious Disk Orbiting Supermassive Black Hole | The Daily Galaxy

“We saw something completely unexpected” said astronomers using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, who found a mysterious thin disk of material furiously whirling around a supermassive black hole at the heart of magnificent spiral galaxy NGC 3147 located some 130 million light-years away from Earth. The conundrum, the researchers say, is that the disk shouldn’t be […]

Black hole the size of a grapefruit lurking at the edges of our solar system ‘could be Planet X’- Technology News, Firstpost

Scientists are now trying to figure out if a grapefruit-sized blackhole actually lurks at the fringes of our outer solar system. In the last few years, researchers have noticed an odd clustering of multiple trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs), which are found in the far outer solar system… MORE ABOUT THIS ARTICLE IN THE LINK BELOW… https://www.firstpost.com/tech/science/black-hole-the-size-of-a-grapefruit-could-be-planet-x-is-lurking-in-the-outer-edges-of-the-solar-system-8594001.html

Fastest-growing black hole in the universe eats the equivalent of one sun per day

Astronomers have come across a monstrously large black hole with a gargantuan appetite. Each passing day, the insatiable void known as J2157 consumes gas and dust equivalent in mass to the sun, making it the fastest-growing black hole in the universe. The sheer scale of J2157 is almost unfathomable, but we can try pinning some […]

Scientists spot flash of light from colliding black holes. But how? | Live Science

Black holes aren’t supposed to make flashes of light. It’s right there in the name: black holes. Even when they slam into each other, the massive objects are supposed to be invisible to astronomers’ traditional instruments. But when scientists detected a black hole collision last year, they also spotted a weird flash from the crash. https://www.livescience.com/amp/black-holes-collision-flash-of-light.html
