Nov. 17, 2015 — A high-performance computing researcher has predicted a physical effect that would help physicists and astronomers provide fresh evidence of the correctness of Einstein's general theory of ... read more

Oct. 28, 2015 — The baffling and strange behaviors of black holes have become somewhat less mysterious recently, with new observations from NASA's Explorer missions Swift and the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope ... read more

Oct. 21, 2015 — A team of astronomers has observed a tidal disruption event in a galaxy that lies about 290 million light years from Earth. The event is the closest tidal disruption discovered in about a ... read more

Oct. 21, 2015 — Astronomers have found the hottest and most massive double star with components so close that they touch each other. The two stars in the extreme system VFTS 352 could be heading for a dramatic end, ... read more

A Breakthrough on the Mathematical Understanding of Einstein’s Equations

Oct. 14, 2015 — Proposed 15 years ago, the bounded L2 curvature conjecture has finally been proven by a group of researchers. It provides a potentially minimal framework in which it is possible to solve the Einstein ... read more

Oct. 13, 2015 — Astronomers have discovered a previously unknown link between the way young stars grow and the way black holes and other exotic space objects feed from their ... read more

Oct. 1, 2015 — When a star collapses forming a black hole, a space-time singularity is created wherein the laws of Physics no longer work. In 1965 Sir Roger Penrose presented a theorem where he associated that ... read more

Sep. 24, 2015 — One hundred years since Einstein proposed gravitational waves as part of his general theory of relativity, an 11-year search has failed to detect them, casting doubt on our understanding of galaxies ... read more

Sep. 24, 2015 — The central supermassive black hole of a recently discovered galaxy has been found to be far larger than should be possible, according to current theories of galactic evolution. New work shows that ... read more

Sep. 22, 2015 — The center of our Milky Way galaxy is a mysterious place. Not only is it thousands of light-years away, it's also cloaked in so much dust that most stars within are rendered invisible. Harvard ... read more

Sep. 21, 2015 — Astronomers analyzing new images of 'X-shaped galaxies' conclude that their peculiar shape is less-commonly caused by mergers than was thought. This result could lower the level of ... read more

Sep. 21, 2015 — Astronomers have found evidence for a new intermediate-mass black hole about 5,000 times the mass of the sun. The discovery adds one more candidate to the list of potential medium-sized black holes, ... read more

Sep. 16, 2015 — Astronomers have provided additional evidence that a pair of closely orbiting black holes deep in the Virgo constellation is causing the rhythmic flashes of light coming from quasar PG 1302-102. ... read more

Aug. 27, 2015 — Astrophysicists have found two supermassive black holes in Markarian 231, the nearest quasar to Earth. The discovery of two supermassive black holes -- one larger one and a second, smaller one -- are ... read more

Aug. 27, 2015 — Astronomers have performed an extensive search for Dust Obscured Galaxies (DOGs). The research group discovered 48 DOGs, and has measured how common they are. Since DOGs are thought to harbor a ... read more

Aug. 13, 2015 — Several exploding stars have been found outside the cozy confines of galaxies, where most stars reside. These wayward supernovae are also weird because they exploded billions of years before their ... read more

Aug. 6, 2015 — Astronomers have uncovered a unique process for how the universe's largest elliptical galaxies continue making stars long after their peak years of star birth. Hubble Space Telescope's ... read more

Aug. 4, 2015 — A super-dense star formed in the aftermath of a supernova explosion is shooting out powerful jets of material into space, research suggests. It was previously thought that the only objects in the ... read more

July 29, 2015 — The merger of two black holes is one of the most sought-after observations of modern astronomy. The first observatories capable of directly detecting gravitational waves -- ripples in the fabric of ... read more

July 23, 2015 — Using archival data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, and the XMM-Newton and Chandra X-ray telescopes, astronomers have discovered a gigantic black hole, which is probably destroying and devouring a ... read more
