A new paper strengthens the theory that black holes are like balls of space yarn and debunks the idea of "firewalls".
Wormholes might very well be a key feature to our cosmos.
The annual rite of February’s African-American History Month in America feels more and more like a mixed blessing with each passing year. On one hand, setting aside time to learn […]
Is the dumpster in the alley worthy of a poem?
We'll never be able to extract any information about what's inside a black hole's event horizon. Here's why a singularity is inevitable.
Surely they can't be worse...can they?
At 1,600 light years away, the black hole is practically in our cosmic backyard.
In 1974, Stephen Hawking showed that even black holes don't live forever, but emit radiation and eventually evaporate. Here's how.
We are tearing ourselves apart over gender issues, with the result that the problems of boys and men are left untreated.
Bring not a bagpipe to a man in trouble.
The neutrino is the most ghostly, rarely-interacting particle in all the Standard Model. How well can we truly make "beams" out of them?
Such massive, early supermassive black holes have puzzled astronomers for decades. At last, we've finally figured out how they form.
With two different black hole event horizons now directly imaged, we can see that they are, in fact, rings, not disks. But why?
Your brain is trying to show you the future.
"The pulsar sort of consumes the thing that recycled it, just as the spider eats its mate.”
Everything is made of matter, not antimatter, including black holes. If antimatter black holes existed, what would they do?
Astronomers in 2017 caught an image of a supermassive black hole in a galaxy far, far away. Doing it in our own galaxy is a huge milestone.
After years of analysis, the Event Horizon Telescope team has finally revealed what the Milky Way's central black hole looks like.
A new paper combines two concepts from the edges of astrophysics: Dyson Spheres and black holes. A Type III civilization could combine them.
Astronomers used supercomputers and an international network of antennas to create the stunning map.
Many first-hand accounts from the golden age of piracy were grossly embellished, meaning it's extremely difficult to separate Blackbeard the legend from Edward Thatch the person.
The inside of every black hole leads to the birth of a new Universe. Could our Universe have arisen from one?
A study describes how researchers conducted the first successful DNA sequencing on ancient Egyptian mummies.
