Supermassive black hole gets kicked to the galactic curb A black hole weighing more than a billion suns appears to have gotten the boot toward the outer edges of its galaxy. Data from the Hubble Space Telescope and other observatories reveal a supermassive black hole zipping away from the center of its galaxy at a 7.5-million-kilometer-per-hour clip. It’s moving so quickly that it could leave the galaxy for good in 20 million years, says Marco Chiaberge of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore. Only gravitational waves — ripples in…

WARNING: Hole opens up on Sun blasting Earth with SOLAR WINDS

WARNING: Hole opens up on Sun blasting Earth with SOLAR WINDS WARNING : A HUGE hole has opened up on the surface of the sun, leaving the Earth vulnerable to solar winds which could cause making disruption to technology. A coronal hole has emerged on the surface of the sun, according to Nasa, which is blasting solar winds in the direction of the Earth. When magnetic field lines travel from the interior of the sun to its surface, they usually remain inside our star. However, when coronal holes appear, which…

First middle-weight black hole found hiding in dense star cluster

First middle-weight black hole found hiding in dense star cluster

First middle-weight black hole found hiding in dense star cluster middle : One more cosmic missing link has been found: a middle sized black hole. Till now, scientists had found either small black holes weighing a few Suns or supermassive black holes weighing millions or billions of Suns, like the one at the center of our galaxy, the Milky Way. But in an ancient cluster of stars some 13,000 light years away from Earth, scientists discovered an intermediate-mass black hole (IMBH) weighing 2,200 Suns. It was hiding at the center…
