Is Planet Nine a primordial Black Hole? (science video).

JMG conducts a little video exploration into the recent idea that the hypothetical Planet Nine outside our solar system may not be a planet at all (this is the thing that causes a gravity-based influence on orbits for trans-Neptunian objects), but instead, could be a small primordial black hole sitting just outside our solar system.

Galaxy-frying X-ray burst from Milky Way’s supermassive black hole core.

Astronomers have observed the largest X-ray flare ever detected from the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy. This event, detected by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, raises questions about the behavior of this giant black hole and its surrounding environment. The supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy, called […]

Black Hole bonanza in Galaxy next door.

Using data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, astronomers have discovered an unprecedented bonanza of black holes in the Andromeda Galaxy, one of the nearest galaxies to the Milky Way. Using more than 150 Chandra observations, spread over 13 years, researchers identified 26 black hole candidates, the largest number to date, in a galaxy outside our […]

When rotating stars explode.

New data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory suggest a highly distorted supernova remnant may contain the most recent black hole formed in the Milky Way galaxy. The remnant appears to be the product of a rare explosion in which matter is ejected at high speeds along the poles of a rotating star. The remnant, called […]
