Researchers have revealed how black holes swallow stars. Tamara Bogdanovic, Assistant Professor of Physics at the Georgia Institute of Technology, said black holes by themselves do not emit light and that their best chance to discover them in distant
Australia's national science agency, is said to be preparing for cuts of up to 20% of government funding that's around A$150 million in the coming budget. This figure is based on a worst-case scenario modelled by senior executives at the
Well, it can be if comedian Ellen Degeneres is your professor. On a recent episode of her NBC talk show , the beloved comedian gave her own hilarious take on quantum mechanics and black holes. Just check out the YouTube video above. "Here is a black
49 Washington: Researchers have said that the gas cloud that's edging closer to the supermassive black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy could reveal much about these entities. Northwestern University's Daryl Haggard has been closely
Chris Adami, a theoretical physicist and computational biologist, is here today to take our questions about what goes on in black holes, information theory, and his proposed solution to the black hole information paradox posed by Stephen Hawking.
As science comes up with new concepts it also creates new terms to describe them...Here's how Shakespeare came up with a term for a theoretical physics concept almost 350 years before it had been invented. Wormhole may sound like a rather modern
Last week's Cosmos episode about comets was so much easier to understand, but I will do my best here to recap Neil DeGrasse Tyson's explanation of gravity, speed of light, speed of sound and the black hole out in our galaxy. It was very touching when
Earlier this year, Stephen Hawking proposed a radical reformulation in how we define black holes but this explanation still left a big unanswered question to how black holes work...The problem centers around just what happens to information when it
We're interested in the story but our insight is no better than the media who are already on top of it. But if this is now the standard for coverage, we might as well jump in, because we can at least come up with speculation as plausible as this...
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,
