Black Hole Size Revealed By Its Eating Pattern

The feeding patterns of black holes offer insight into their size, researchers report. A new study revealed that the flickering in the brightness observed in actively feeding supermassive black holes is related to their mass. #blackholes #EHTBlackHole

New Study Suggests Supermassive Black Holes Could Form from Dark Matter

A new theoretical study has proposed a novel mechanism for the creation of supermassive black holes from dark matter. The international team find that rather than the conventional formation scenarios involving ‘normal’ matter, supermassive black holes could instead form directly from dark matter in high density regions in the centres of galaxies. The result has key implications for cosmology in the early Universe.

For The First Time, Astronomers May Have Heard The Background ‘Hum’ of The Universe

Gravitational waves would be weak and hard to find, but they’re all predicted to make up a resonant ‘hum’ that permeates our Universe, referred to as the gravitational wave background. And we may have just caught the first hint of it. #universehum

Supermassive Black Hole Devours a Passing Star Creating the Biggest Blast Ever

The results of 10 months of observation indicate that the event was probably caused by a rapidly spinning supermassive black hole as it destroyed a low-mass star. This was no supernova. It was unlike anything we’ve ever seen before, and it’s likely because rapidly rotating supermassive black holes are the exception, rather than the rule.

Stephen Hawking Warns Artificial Intelligence Could End Mankind

Stephen Hawking: “Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete and would be superseded” Prof Hawking says the primitive forms of artificial intelligence developed so far have already proved very useful, but he fears the consequences of creating something that can match or surpass humans.
