Have we caught a glimpse of some of the earliest black holes in the universe, and what does it mean for our understanding of the early universe?
Biased supermassive black hole samples may compromise well-known black hole-galaxy scaling relations.
This is less a physical question than a moral one. Should we feed a black hole? If we do, will it ever learn to feed and fend for itself independently? Will it ever truly be able to return to the wild, or will it ever after be chained to the yoke of domestic comfort?
What makes up the innards of the brightest galaxy in the universe?
More than 100 massive stars orbit the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy incredibly closely.
Today’s astrobite is not about disc jockey insects informing us about spacetime. Read on to find out a novel way of detecting electromagnetic counterparts of merging supermassive black holes.
