‘Exciting’ hot bubble detected around Milky Way’s supermassive black hole

Astronomers have spotted signs of a “hot spot” orbiting Sagittarius A*, the black hole at the center of our galaxy. Astronomers find signs of ‘hot spot’ orbiting Sagittarius A* black hole A black hole is a place in space where the gravitational field is so strong that not even light can escape. Astronomers classify black …

A pair of supermassive black holes could collide within 3 years

A pair of supermassive black holes could collide within 3 years

The bizarre behavior of a galaxy some 1 billion light-years away suggests it may contain one of the most anticipated events in modern astronomy. The light fluctuations from the center of the galaxy SDSS J1430+2303 look suspicious, like a pair of supermassive black holes with a combined mass of about 200 million suns destined to …
