Over 40 Quintillion black holes are in the observable universe, new estimates find

A team of astrophysicists has calculated the number ofmass of black holes in the observable universe to be 40 quintillion, which accounts for 1% of the total common matter in the universe. The researchers focus on black holes in the mass of stars, the least known black, but note that their calculations may help solve … Read more

Take a look at the largest and most detailed 3D map of the universe ever made

The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI), currently pointing toward the sky from its home in the Nicholas U. Mayall Telescope at the Kitt Peak National Observatory in Arizona, is tasked with mapping the expansion of space, examining dark energy and creating the most detailed 3D map of the universe that has ever been put together. … Read more

Newly discovered ‘mini’ supermassive black hole is among the smallest ever found

Because they do not emit anything we can detect, there are many things about black holes that we simply do not know. Among the most confusing are supermassive black holes, millions to billions of times the mass of our sun. Since black holes are formed from the nuclei of massive dead individual stars, how do … Read more

Enjoy the latest Hubble image for 2021 – A distant, smiling galaxy

In 2014, amateur astronomers in New Zealand glimpsed an eruption of light from the constellation Centauri. NASA later confirmed that this fire was a massive supernova explosion from another galaxy an incredible 57 million light-years away from our Milky Way. “Dedicated amateur astronomers often make intriguing discoveries – especially of volatile astronomical phenomena such as … Read more

5 Out-of-This-World telescopic images of space to get you excited about the JWST launch

The upcoming launch of the James Webb Space Telescope offers unprecedented new possibilities for astronomers. It is also a timely opportunity to reflect on what previous generations of telescopes have shown us. Astronomers rarely use their telescopes to simply take pictures. The images in astrophysics are usually generated by a process of scientific conclusion and … Read more
