Latest Kelly Holley-Bockelmann Stories
As astronomers peer out into the distant reaches of the Universe they find that some galaxies are emitting enormous amounts of radiation from their cores.
In today's Your Universe Today Podcast, we talked with theoretical physicist Dr. Kelly Holley-Bockelmann about mysterious supermassive black holes, which are millions or billions times larger than our Sun.
On today’s Your Universe Today podcast, theoretical physicist Dr. Kelly Holley-Bockelmann is back to discuss facts about black holes and help us separate myth from reality.
In this podcast, Dr. John Millis spoke with Vanderbilt's theoretical physicist Kelly Holley-Bockelmann about how stars die and black holes form.
It’s very difficult to kick a star out of the galaxy. In fact, the primary mechanism that astronomers have come up with that can give a star the two-million-plus mile-per-hour kick it takes requires a close encounter with the supermassive black hole at the galaxy’s core.
If the latest simulation of what happens when black holes merge is correct, there could be hundreds of rogue black holes, each weighing several thousand times the mass of the sun, roaming around the Milky Way galaxy.
