Multifrequency Observations of M87*

In April 2019, scientists released the first image of a black hole using the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT). However, that remarkable achievement was just the beginning of the science story…

Astronomers image magnetic fields at the edge of M87’s black hole

The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) collaboration, who produced the first ever image of a black hole, has today revealed a new view of the massive object at the centre of…

Gigantic jet spied from black hole in early universe

Astronomers have discovered evidence for an extraordinarily long jet of particles coming from a supermassive black hole in the early universe, using NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory. If confirmed, it would…

Software solution to measure the black holes stability

Even if a black hole can be described with a mathematical model, it doesn’t mean it exists in reality. Some theoretical models are unstable: though they can be used to…

In the eye of a stellar cyclone

Sydney undergraduate unlocks bizarre secrets of a ticking time-bomb star. While on COVID lockdown, a University of Sydney honours student has written a research paper on a star system dubbed…

How to have a blast like a black hole

Scientists at Osaka University use extremely intense laser pulses to create magnetized-plasma conditions comparable to those surrounding a black hole, study that may help explain the still mysterious X-rays that…

Can black hole fire up cold heart of the phoenix?

Radio astronomers have detected jets of hot gas blasted out by a black hole in the galaxy at the heart of the Phoenix Galaxy Cluster, located 5.9 billion light-years away…

Continuous infrared winds discovered during the eruption of a stellar mass black hole

Until now, these flows of material had been detected only in other wavelength ranges, such as X-rays or the visible, depending on the phase in which the black hole is…

Spinning Black Hole Powers Jet by Magnetic Flux

A new letter has been found in the mysterious alphabet of black holes. Two astrophysicists share this discovery in the journal Nature Communications. Black holes are at the center of…

Quantum physicists crack mystery of 'strange metals,' a new state of matter

Even by the standards of quantum physicists, strange metals are just plain odd. The materials are related to high-temperature superconductors and have…
