Scientists have captured the first image of the black hole at the heart of the Milky Way, Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*). The global research team, known as Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) Collaboration, is hopeful they will eventually be able to capture video of the black hole as well. During a live stream event hosted by... Read more...
NASA has produced an eerie sonification from the black hole at the center of the Perseus galaxy cluster, and it sounds like it belongs in a Stephen King inspired flick. The release of the sonification is part of NASA's Black Hole Week this year. The black hole at the center of the Perseus galaxy cluster has been... Read more...
Hubble has provided the imagery necessary to identify a black hole that is growing at a breakneck speed in the early universe. Astronomers believe that it could be the "missing link" between young star-forming galaxies and the first supermassive black holes. Until recently, a supermassive black hole, known as... Read more...
A group of astronomers and scientists have found the most distant astronomical object ever, a galaxy far, far away. The galaxy candidate, named HD1, is 13.5 billion light-years away and is discussed in a new research paper. A group of international astronomers, including a team of researchers from the Center for... Read more...
Hubble is still capturing breathtaking photos of distant galaxies, as it sends back an incredible image of a supermassive black hole 110 million light-years from Earth. The image captures tendrils of dark dust interweaving across the heart of galaxy NGC 7172. The Hubble Space Telescope continues to take incredible... Read more...
A physicist and two colleagues believe that wormholes may help work out a paradox proposed by Stephen Hawking in the 1970s. The paradox involves what happens to information once it falls into a black hole. In the 1970s, Stephen Hawking argued against Einstein's theory of general relativity, that nothing that falls...

What happens when the universe gets indigestion? Massive bubbles form at the middle of the Milky Way, and then astronomers and scientists get to debate what it all means. They've been doing exactly that when, in 2020, the X-ray telescope eRosita discovered a pair of enormous bubbles at the center of the galaxy. The... Read more...
A pair of supermassive blackholes are locked in a fateful dance that draws them ever closer to one another. Once the pair finally merges in approximately 10,000 years, the result is expected to send out gravitational waves that will rattle space and time itself. Astronomers have known that quasars could possess two... Read more...
Researchers are attempting to use quantum computing and machine learning in order to gain a better understanding of holographic duality. The study is the first systematic survey for quantum computing and deep-learning as it pertains to matrix quantum mechanics, and lays the groundwork for addressing more complicated... Read more...
A group of astronomers and astrophysicists have reported that they have found evidence of an isolated stellar-mass black hole for the first time ever. The black hole was detected with the help of the Hubble Telescope, and is estimated to be 7.1 times the mass of our sun. As everyone awaits the James Webb Space... Read more...
A team of astrophysicists have developed a method of estimating the number of stellar-mass black holes, and that number is massive. They estimate that while these black holes only make up 1% of all normal matter, there are an astounding 40,000,000,000,000,000,000 (40 quintillion) of them. Teams at NASA continue to... Read more...
The European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope Interferometer (ESO's VLTI) has peered where no telescope looked before and gathered the sharpest images of the region around the supermassive black hole in the center of the Milky Way. In doing so, it has provided the data for the most precise measurement yet... Read more...
The European Southern Observatory's aptly named Very Large Telescope (ESO's VLT) recently discovered a pair of supermassive black holes that are the closest to Earth yet. The pair also broke the record for being the closest to one another, which has a broader implication. In a galaxy far, far away astronomers... Read more...
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope was set to launch on December 18th. However, an incident that occurred during testing of the observatory has NASA and its partners delaying the launch. Once the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) does launch, it is set to join forces with the Event Horizon Telescope. The first... Read more...
Over the weekend, Fortnite in its entirety was sucked into a black hole, leaving everyone clamoring for when they’d be able to rejoin one of the most popular games on the planet. Logging into the game currently only displays a black hole, and all of Epic Games’ social media accounts have gone radio silent. The only... Read more...
Fortnite is currently in flux, as the 'The End" event has resulted in the entire map and all the contents therein being sucked into a mysterious black hole. Players aren't able to access the Fortnite servers, and you can't play or communicate with your friends. Epic has drained all of fun out of room... or has... Read more...
Well here's a bit of a bummer going into the weekend. Apparently the developer responsible for the popular Black Hole exploit kit -- the one that lazy hackers and inexperienced script kiddies are particularly drawn towards -- has released a new version of his nefarious software, with new and improved features designed to evade antivirus scanners....

I have a soft spot for Netscape.com. AOL purchased the brand name back in 1999, probably trying to get a little goodwill from people like me that remember when Netscape was THE web browser. The Netscape.com portal has used a"social news" format for submitting and voting on the prominence of news stories for over a year now, but parent AOL... Read more...
