NICER Mission Maps a New Black Hole called J1820

NICER Mission Maps a New Black Hole called J1820

The Neutron star Interior Composition Explorer (NICER) of NASA allowed the researchers to study a new stellar-mass black hole called J1820. NICER found this massive black hole (10 times the mass of the Sun) by detecting the X-rays emitting from it as it consumed material from a companion star. The name given to this newly-discovered…

Gravitational Waves could Reveal the Shape of Wormholes

Gravitational Waves could Reveal the Shape of Wormholes

The electromagnetic radiation and light from wormholes might help in determining the shape of this exotic object. Any mathematical model which merges three dimensions of space with the one dimension of time to produce a single 4-dimensional continuum is called Space-time. This phenomenon is closely associated with Wormholes, a speculative structure that could create shortcuts…

The Mystery about the Fast Radio Bursts Goes on

The Mystery about the Fast Radio Bursts Goes on

Scientists make some progress about the mysterious light flashes discovered in deep space last year. Fast Radio Burst (FRB) is an astrophysical phenomenon whose origin is still unknown to humanity. It is manifested as a high-energy radio pulse which, on average, lasts for a few milliseconds. The first occurrence of discovering an FRB was reported…

Why Earth Rotates?

Why Earth Rotates?

The rotation theory of the universe suggests that if the sun shall rise tomorrow, it may just be a fraction late. Since the Earth came into being some 4.6 billion years ago, every day it spins once around its axis just like the rising and setting of the Sun. This will continue to happen till…

The merger of Binary Neutron Star produces a burst of Gamma Radiations

The merger of Binary Neutron Star produces a burst of Gamma Radiations

Researchers are quite happy about a discovery as they are hopeful that it will help the Astrophysicists to understand the links between Gravitational Waves, Neutron Stars Merger, and Short Gamma-ray Bursts. The gravitationally collapsed core of a large star is called a ‘Neutron Star’. They are the smallest as well as the densest stars that…

A Million Habitable Planets could orbit a Black Hole

A Million Habitable Planets could orbit a Black Hole

Sean Raymond, an Astrophysicist at the Observatory of Bordeaux, suggests that nearly a million planets supporting life could orbit a black hole. Black Holes are one of the most amazing concepts and scientists are quite keen to explore more and more about them. We do know that the gravitational pull in these regions of space…

Is Large Hadron Collider still making any progress?

Is Large Hadron Collider still making any progress?

An improved version of Large Hadron Collider called Future Circular Collider is under-development which could produce enough energy to create Black Holes. In Particle Physics, a Hadron is a composite particle of quarks held together by a strong force in the same way as molecules are comprised of atoms bonded by electromagnetic forces. A Hadron…

Supermassive Black Holes can Devour One Star in a Year

Supermassive Black Holes can Devour One Star in a Year

Are Black Holes the most powerful thing in the universe? Supermassive black holes are considered the central point of almost every galaxy out there. They are extremely dangerous as they have the potential to wipe out the very galaxy it resides in. The reason for this frightening threat is, the blazing energy these holes have,…

We are about to see a Black Hole for the First Time in History

We are about to see a Black Hole for the First Time in History

The highest resolution instrument in the history of astronomy is about to prove if black holes are real or not. Even though Albert Einstein’s theories showed potential black holes, neither the physician himself was sure of them. Until now, no one had a concrete proof that the theory of general relativity is real, but this…

Something Just Came Out Of A Black Hole

Something Just Came Out Of A Black Hole

NASA’s astronomers discovered an unique phenomenon with Markarian 335 Black Hole. Two telescopes for astronomical observation, Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array and NASA’s Explorer missions Swift, have managed to caught a supermassive black hole in the midst of a giant eruption of X-ray light. “This is the first time we have been able to link the…

World’s most powerful X-ray laser has created a molecular black hole

World’s most powerful X-ray laser has created a molecular black hole

The black hole allows researchers to analyze its retail behavior. Finally, the researchers succeeded in creating a “miniature” of a black hole. When X-ray energy is directed towards a molecule, it removes all of its electrons, so it creates a hole that attracts the electrons of the atoms around. This effect is produced only on…

Strange phenomenon: Supermasive black hole was expelled from galaxy center

The theory says that there have been a collision between two galaxies and the black holes of these galaxies began to gravitee around each other. The collision of two galaxies is resulting in the formation of a new one This phenomenon was observed by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, and the mass of the black hole…
