Pair Of Supermassive Black Holes Discovered By XMM-Newton
2014-04-22 14:09:30

A pair of supermassive black holes in orbit around one another have been spotted by XMM-Newton.

Colliding Galaxies Create Supermassive Black Holes

At the center of almost every galaxy we have studied is a black hole of such magnitude that the traditional black hole progenitor does not seem likely. These aptly named supermassive black holes can reach millions or billions of times the mass of our Sun.

Heart Of Space Mission LISA Pathfinder Successfully Tested, Ready For Launch
2013-06-05 14:13:03

The optical bench of the LISA Pathfinder (LPF) mission passed with flying colors extensive testing at the Institute for Gravitational Research (IGR) at the University of Glasgow.

Atom Optics To Predict Gravitational Waves
2012-10-19 08:33:13

NASA is pursuing a pioneering technology capable of atomic-level precision to detect gravitational waves or ripples in space-time caused by cataclysmic events, including the Big Bang itself.

Merging Black Holes Could Reveal Their Flashy Secrets
2012-09-29 08:09:37

Einstein predicted gravitational waves almost 100 years ago. According to his theory, whenever massive objects interact, they produce distortions in the very fabric of space and time that ripple outward across the universe at the speed of light.

LISA Pathfinder Takes Major Step In Hunt For Gravity Waves
