The story of how black holes, especially young ones, grow so fast and become massive, even supermassive, has been puzzling astronomers for a long time.
Why was there a difference between the amount of matter and antimatter at the beginning of the Universe? Mathematics lets us travel faster than light speed, so why can’t we? And are there stars forming around black holes?
This week we find out what would happen if the Moon was rotating fast and not tidally locked to the Earth also where the light and matter go into a black hole.
Today on #365DaysOfAstro, @AwesomeAstroPod talk to Dr Becky on how to grow a supermassive black hole – and it’s not as easy as you think! Always picture a black hole as a gigantic hoover, sucking up everything that dares to stray too close? Think again…
Besides dark matter and dark energy, is there any possibility there’s anything else in outer space? What are the possibilities that white holes are really out there? More with @AstronomyCast
We hear that black holes absorb all the light that falls into them. And yet, we hear of black holes shining so brightly we can see them halfway across the Universe. What’s going on? Which is it?
Why didn’t the big bang collapse in a singularity? What would a universe-sized black hole be like? Now that I think about it, do we live inside a giant black hole already?
Astronomers describe ‘cosmic noon’ as a dramatic period in the history of our Universe when it was buzzing with galaxy mergers and furious star formation. And here’s the evidence of the early merger.
This month Awesome Astronomy News talk about new data on the M87 blackhole, the architecture of planetary systems, the hottest stars, an impact crater in France and how Mars might not have been oxygen rich.
Astronomers recently found that the growth of a galaxy and the growth of the supermassive black hole, or SMBH, at its center have a lot in common.
