Hubble video shows shock collision inside black hole jet
When you're blasting though space at more than 98 percent of the speed of light, you may need driver's insurance. Astronomers have discovered for the first time a rear-end collision between two high-speed ...
New insights found in black hole collisions
New research provides revelations about the most energetic event in the universe—the merging of two spinning, orbiting black holes into a much larger black hole.
The human eye can see 'invisible' infrared light
Any science textbook will tell you we can't see infrared light. Like X-rays and radio waves, infrared light waves are outside the visual spectrum. But an international team of researchers co-led by scientists ...
