Paradox Solved? How Information Can Escape From a Black Hole
Science & Tech  (tags: space, black holes, astrophysics )

- 1075 days ago -
Every black hole conceals a secret -- the quantum remains of the star from which it formed, say a group of scientists, who also predict that these stars can later emerge once the black hole evaporates.
Hawking's Black Hole 'Blunder' Shows How Little We Know About Gravity
Science & Tech  (tags: discovery, gravity, Stephen Hawking, research, space, astronomy, black holes, science, scientists )

- 1116 days ago -
Gravity isn't just a pain when you're climbing up a long flight of stairs or careening out of control down a hill on skis - it's also a nuisance for scientists such as Stephen Hawking, who are trying to understand how this force works in the universe.
Stephen Hawking: Black Holes May Not Have 'Event Horizons' After All
Science & Tech  (tags: Black Hole, Black Hole Theories, Black Holes, Black Holes Stephen Hawking, Black-Hole-Event-Horizon, Hawking Black Holes, Hawking Event Horizon, No Event Horizon, Physics, Quantum Theory, Stephen Hawking, discovery, astronomy, technology, science )

- 1122 days ago -
Most physicists foolhardy enough to write a paper claiming that "there are no black holes" -- at least not in the sense we usually imagine -- would probably be dismissed as cranks.
Black Holes May Have 'Hair'
Science & Tech  (tags: research, NewTechnology, space, study, black holes, hairy, discovery )

- 1218 days ago -
In a challenge to traditional models of the universe's gravitational monsters, new research suggests black holes could be quite "hairy," with more tangled features than previously believed.
How Giant Black Holes Spin: New Twist Revealed
Science & Tech  (tags: space, black holes, cosmos )

- 1302 days ago -
A newly discovered way to determine the spin of monster black holes could help shed light on the evolution of these bizarre objects and the galaxies they anchor.
Incredible Technology: How to See a Black Hole
Science & Tech  (tags: astronomy, humans, research, space, tech, technology, nasa, black holes )

- 1316 days ago -
Black holes are essentially invisible, but astronomers are developing technology to image the immediate surroundings of these enigmas like never before.
Space-Time Loops May Explain Black Holes
Science & Tech  (tags: science, space, study, discovery, black holes, explanation, research )

- 1318 days ago -
Physics cannot describe what happens inside a black hole. There, current theories break down, and general relativity collides with quantum mechanics, creating what's called a singularity, or a point at which the equations spit out infinities.
Obese Black-Hole Galaxies Could Reveal Quasar Secrets
Science & Tech  (tags: quasars, black holes, space )

- 1346 days ago -
Gluttonous black holes in the center of some galaxies could be precursors to the brightest objects in the known universe.
Runaway Black Hole Is An Intergalactic Hitchhiker
Science & Tech  (tags: astronomy, black holes, discovery, interesting, news, science, space, University of Texas at Austin )

- 1459 days ago -
It's the most massive black hole ever measured, and the thing escaped from one galaxy before getting captured by another. This is the first time astronomers observed such an event. Logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.

Cosmic Rays: 100 Years Of Mystery
Science & Tech  (tags: IceCube, Pierre Auger Observatory, black holes, gamma ray bursts, neutrinos, Supernova )

- 1671 days ago -
This August, physicists are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the discovery of cosmic rays, showers of particles raining down on us from outer space. What mysteries remain?
Pulsars Could Probe Space-Time Around Black Holes
Science & Tech  (tags: space, pulsars, black holes )

- 1773 days ago -
If a pulsing star exists near the center of our Milky Way galaxy, where a giant black hole is thought to lurk, it could shed light on the workings of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, scientists say.
Stephen Hawking: We Should Colonise Mars But Encountering Aliens 'Will Not End Well'
Science & Tech  (tags: astronomy, space, society, science, Black Holes, Mars, News, Outer Space, Physics, Professor Hawking, Stars, Stephen Hawking )

- 1870 days ago -
Professor Stephen Hawking told listeners of BBC Today programme that he thought humans would almost definitely colonise Mars, but he warned against encouraging alien encounters.
First 3-D Map of 14,000 Quasars to Reveal Effect of Dark Energy on Early Universe
Science & Tech  (tags: 3-D Map, Dark Energy, Early Universe, black holes )

- 2122 days ago -
The biggest 3-D map of the distant Universe ever made, using light from 14,000 quasars -- supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies billions of light years away to illuminate ghostly clouds of intergalactic hydrogen -- has been constructed.....
Why Our Universe Must Have Been Born Inside a Black Hole
Science & Tech  (tags: astronomy, black holes, discovery, environment, interesting, nasa, news, world, universe )

- 2246 days ago -
"Our own Universe may be the interior of a black hole existing in another universe," concludes Nikodem Poplawski at Indiana University in a remarkable paper about the nature of space and time. Logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.
