Scientists have only observed supermassive black holes one billion years after the Big Bang, but astrophysicists have now breached this barrier.
A 15-year study using observed radio signals from the 67 pulsars has concluded that the entire cosmos is filled with undulating gravitational waves.
Dark matter could be aggregating around black holes, providing a possible means of indirectly measuring its properties.
Astronomers looking at how black holes grow over time may have found the answer to one of the biggest problems in cosmology.
Is it time to start looking for alternatives to WIMPs?
45 years worth of radio telescope observations have identified a pair of supermassive black holes at the core of two galaxies set to merge.
A new theory for the origin and nature of dark matter resolves some inconsistencies between cosmological predictions and astronomical data.
The existence of a quantum membrane is predicted by some theories of gravity, and scientists might be one step closer to identifying one.
Three laureates share this year’s Nobel prize in physics for their discoveries about one of the most exotic phenomena in the universe: the black hole.
Previously unobserved frequency changes in radio signals detected in a black hole binary system could change our understanding of black hole physics.
