A supermassive black hole inside a distant quasar spins at about 336 million mph (540 million kph), roughly half the speed of light, according to research published in the journal Nature. Scientists have measured the spin rates of black holes before,
Chandra X-ray Observatory and the European Space Agency's (ESA's) XMM-Newton to show a supermassive black hole six billion light-years from Earth is spinning extremely rapidly. Black holes are defined by just two simple characteristics: mass and spin.
Chandra X-ray Observatory and the Hubble Space Telescope using a gravitational lensing technique. The extremely luminous quasar is produced by a nearby supermassive black hole that's pulling in surrounding gas. Black holes are typically measured
31 Washington: Astronomers have reported seeing huge clouds of gas orbiting supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies. Once thought to be a relatively uniform, fog-like ring, the accreting matter instead forms clumps dense enough to
Scroll down for video cientists and legal experts have raised concerns that an ambitious experiment at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, using a super-charged ion collider, could accidentally destroy planet Earth (illustrated) While the experiment
There are few scientific phenomena more vivid than black holes. These collapsed stars pack in so much gravitational force that not even light can escape their grasp. But a new paper from physicist Stephen Hawking declares that there are no black
A few turns later, your opponent might make your star go supernova or obliterate your planet with a cosmic collision...You have a collection raw elements as well an abstract substance called "essence" that represents your ability to shape and create
He said this happened even though several American astrophysicists verified his prediction that such quasi-Black Holes must have strong magnetic fields unlike the real Black Holes, adding that even Harvard University issued a press release to this
Or perhaps the laws of physics aren't quite right yet? (Or both!) Here are just a few links on these mysterious entities that are thankfully very far away. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not
Staff Writer / January 29, 2014 Famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking has shaken up the popular science world with his newest study about the basic nature of black holes, but is his idea revolutionary?
