Astronomers discover most MASSIVE neutron star known to man

5 hours ago DieselGasoil Comments Off on Astronomers discover most MASSIVE neutron star known to man
Astronomers have detected a neutron star which beggars belief, being so big it challenges our understanding of extreme objects in the universe. The pulsar, with the catchy name J0740+6620, is the first neutron star humans have detected measuring over two solar masses.  Using the timing of its pulses, astronomers have calculated its mass to be Read More

Heart of darkness: Black holes may hide pure dark energy cores that are expanding the universe

5 days ago DieselGasoil Comments Off on Heart of darkness: Black holes may hide pure dark energy cores that are expanding the universe
Black holes could hide cores of pure dark energy which are quite literally pushing apart our universe at its very seams, according to an exciting new cosmological theory based on the work of two Russian physicists. University of Hawaii astrophysicist Kevin Croker and mathematician Joel Weiner examined some long-standing and far-reaching scientific theories about the Read More

A black hole so big it shouldn’t even exist is baffling scientists

Scientists may have spotted a black hole that is so enormous, it shouldn’t even exist, although they aren’t quite sure if it even does. The black hole’s mass is 100 times greater than the Sun. The potential black hole, which is twice as large as what physicists had believed was possible, was detected by the Read More

Kickstarter: Millions of black holes bouncing around galaxy after being booted at birth, study finds

3 weeks ago DieselGasoil Comments Off on Kickstarter: Millions of black holes bouncing around galaxy after being booted at birth, study finds
One of the leading theories about the origins of black holes suggests they come from gargantuan supernova explosions. New research suggests these blasts may be so powerful, they literally kick black holes around the galaxy. If proven correct, this would mean that, throughout the galaxy and indeed the wider universe, there are likely millions of Read More

Gulp! Scientists ‘detect black hole swallowing neutron star for first time’

Strong gravitational ripples in the cosmos have revealed what experts believe is the first ever detection of a doomed neutron star being swallowed by a black hole. The gravitational waves washed across the universe before being detected by the LIGO and Virgo observatories in recent days. The historic event, which is called S190814bv, was recorded Read More

Astronomers studying ALIEN radio signals discover 8 NEW sources, one from nearby galaxy

1 month ago DieselGasoil Comments Off on Astronomers studying ALIEN radio signals discover 8 NEW sources, one from nearby galaxy
Astronomers studying Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs), some of the rarest and most enigmatic phenomena in deep space, have detected eight new repeating signals, which could hold the key to solving where exactly they come from. While these curious signals are alien in origin, no one should be expecting little green men contacting their friends in Read More
