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.

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

This cluster has been nicknamed "El Gordo" (or, "the fat one" in Spanish) because of its gigantic mass.

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.

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...
