Latest Schwarzschild radius Stories
Scientists have determined that the black hole in the middle of the Milky Way is getting ready to devour an approaching cloud of dust and gas.
Black holes that grow to masses billions of times greater than that of our sun most likely reached those sizes by consuming objects from multiple locations at the same time.
One of the most important predictions of Einstein's theory of General Relativity is the existence of black holes.
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.
Warm gas escaping from the clutches of enormous black holes could be the key to a form of intergalactic â€˜pollutionâ€™ that made life possible, according to new results from ESAâ€™s XMM-Newton space observatory, published today.
Black Hole -- Black holes are objects so dense that not even light can escape their gravity. They are believed to form from the gravitational collapse of astronomical objects containing two or more solar masses. Astronomical observations suggest that the center of most galaxies, including our own Milky Way, contain supermassive black holes containing millions to billions of solar masses. Black holes are predictions of Einstein's theory of general relativity. In particular, they occur...
