Latest Galaxies Stories
WASHINGTON, May 21, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A remote galaxy shining with the light of more than 300 trillion suns has been discovered using data from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey
This month at the Science Club Nashville, we were privy to Dr. Jillian Bellovary, a Bridge Postdoctoral Fellow at Vanderbilt University's Physics & Astronomy Department. She started us off nicely with an easy-to-grasp introduction into black holes, then segued into the meat of her presentation: using cosmological simulations to study how galaxies and supermassive black holes form over cosmic time.
We can see dead galaxies all over the universe-- but what causes them to die?
These black holes are always hungry and are huge! Constantly gorging yourself on gas 'donuts' can do that to you.
Braaaaaains. A mysterious high-energy X-ray signal detected by NuSTAR could be the sounds of “zombie” stars feeding on the “brains” of nearby stellar companions, according to research published recently in the journal Nature.
Meet the loneliest galaxies in the universe as they were flung from their home clusters due to gravitational turbulence.
Dartmouth astrophysicists and their colleagues have not only proven that a supermassive black hole exists in a place where it isn't supposed to be, but in doing so have opened a new door to what things were like in the early universe.
As two galaxies enter the final stages of merging, scientists have theorized that the galaxies’ supermassive black holes will form a “binary,” or two black holes in such close orbit they
A new survey by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory studied 72 galactic cluster collisions from all different angles and times, revealing that the 85 percent of the universe’s total matter is way weirder than we could ever imagine.
Observational evidence supports a functional link predicted by theory College Park, MD (PRWEB) March 25, 2015 Many nearby galaxies blast huge, wide-angled
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...
