Researchers who worked on the Event Horizon Telescope have released the first image of a black hole’s shadow. Now what?
Event Horizon Telescope scientists break down the brand new image of the supermassive black hole at the center of nearby galaxy Messier 87, and explore what lies beyond in black hole science.
Forty-five years ago, a collaboration between Roger Penrose and Stephen Hawking transformed perceptions about black holes and the beginning of the universe.
For the first time, scientists have directly detected gravitational waves—the last unproven part of Einstein’s theory of general relativity.
Researchers estimate that there are millions of supermassive black holes hidden in the universe.
