Black Hole Caught Eating a Star, Gamma-Ray Flash Hints

A rare supernova explosion has led scientist's to believe they may be witnessing the birth of a black hole for the first time in history.

The Eridanus Void. This area shows almost no signs of cosmic matter, meaning no stars, planets, solar systems or clouds of cosmic dust. Researchers couldn't even find dark matter, which is invisible but measurable by its gravitational pull. There were also no signs of black holes that might have gobbled up the matter once present in the region.

Beautiful Supernova Remnant May Contain Galaxy’s Youngest Black Hole

Beautiful Supernova Remnant May Contain Galaxy’s Youngest Black Hole - A supernova remnant that is located about 26,000 light years from Earth.

This artist’s impression shows the surroundings of the supermassive black hole at the heart of the active galaxy NGC 3783 in the southern constellation of Centaurus (The Centaur). New observations using the Very Large Telescope Interferometer at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile have revealed not only the torus of hot dust around the black hole but also a wind of cool material in the polar regions.

In August of 2007, astronomers at the University of Minnesota located a gigantic hole in the universe. This empty space, stretching nearly a billion light-years across, is devoid of any matter such as galaxies, stars, and gas, and neither does it contain the strange and mysterious dark matter, which can be detected but not seen.
