Signals found in gamma-ray bursts could create a potential opportunity to study the properties of similar occurrences, according to a new study.
Here's what you need to know about black holes and whether it could allow someone to travel through time.
The jet of matter, appearing as a flash of light brighter than 1,000 trillion suns, originated from a supermassive black hole 8.5 billion light years away and traveled at 99.99% the speed of light.
Using data from the recently deployed Imaging X-ray Polarimetry Explorer (IXPE) orbiting observatory, researchers were able to answer more unexplained questions.
The shredding of the star, known as a “tidal disruption event” or TDE, produced a flare of radiation that briefly outshone the combined stellar light of the host dwarf galaxy.
A team of researchers found that a simulated black hole could have multiple masses simultaneously.
The burst, known as GRB 221009A but nicknamed the "B.O.A.T." (Brightest Of All Time), disrupted Earth's ionosphere.
PSR J0952–0607 is a neutron star 2.3 times as massive as the Sun but around just 20 kilometers wide. It is the closest pulsar known to the limit to forming a black hole.
A dormant black hole is a black hole that doesn't emit the X-ray radiation that makes other black holes easy to spot.
According to the Kabbalah of Information, the 'Sefirot' are the families of concepts in the informational space, and they include: Keter, Chochma, and Binah.
