Observational evidence supports a functional link predicted by theory College Park, MD (PRWEB) March 25, 2015 Many nearby galaxies blast huge, wide-angled
WASHINGTON, March 4, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, astronomers have found that the growth of galaxies containing supermassive black holes can be slowed
Astronomers have long wondered exactly what fate befell the compact massive galaxies that could be found throughout the universe during its infancy, but new research from experts at the Swinburne University of Technology may have finally discovered the answer.
The largest and most luminous black hole ever seen has been discovered, with a mass about 12 billion times that of the sun.
Every massive galaxy has a black hole at its center, and the heftier the galaxy, the bigger its black hole. But why are the two related? After all, the black hole is millions of times smaller and less massive than its home galaxy.
The film's visual effects company created a computer code that more accurately portrays a spinning black hole, and this code could be easily rendered for scientific use.
Interstellar gas is the lifeblood of a galaxy, and when it runs out of gas, the galaxy becomes a dead remnant of its former self. (That's also how we feel after eating Thai.)
Someone dimmed the lights in space. Scientists observe a dimming quasar for the first time ever, and this could lead to a understanding of the mysterious black holes and their lifespans.
Detailed analysis of different stellar populations in the disk of Andromeda suggests the galaxy may have had a far more violent history of mergers with smaller galaxies than the Milky Way, researchers from the University of California, Santa Cruz report in a new study.
Supermassive Black Hole -- A Supermassive black hole is a black hole with a mass in the range of millions or billions solar masses. A supermassive black hole has some interesting properties differing from his low-mass cousins: -- The average density of a supermassive black hole can be very low, and actually can be lower than water's density. This happens because the black hole diameter increases linearly with mass, and consequently density drops much faster. -- Strong tidal...
