Huge simulation suggests new origin of supermassive black holes

Astrophysicists at Tohoku University in Japan have suggested a new theory for the origin of supermassive black holes using large computer simulations. The theory helps to further explain the massive number of black holes currently observed. Nearly every galaxy in...

Supernovas, neutron stars and black holes 'break the rules'

In an interview with Wal Thornhill, Chief Science Advisor of The Thunderbolts Project, we explore a number of intriguing space science discoveries, including supernovae, "neutron stars," "black holes" and "white dwarf" stars which...

Groundbreaking discovery confirms existence of orbiting supermassive black holes

For the first time ever, astronomers at The University of New Mexico say they've been able to observe and measure the orbital motion between two supermassive black holes hundreds of millions of light years from Earth - a discovery more than a decade in the...

A mysterious discovery: Supermassive black holes spinning out aligned radio jets

A team of scientists from the University of Cape Town and University of the Western Cape in South Africa have discovered that supermassive black holes in the distant universe are spinning out radio jets in the same direction. This is the first time researchers found...

Einstein's general theory of relativity confirmed: Gravitational waves observed for the first time

Gravitational waves, the ripples in the spacetime fabric, were observed for the first time, the scientists confirmed on February 11, 2016. The waves resulted from a cataclysmic event of two black holes merging in the distant universe. Their existence, first...

Scientists get unique chance to study black hole eating a star

A team of astrophysics led by a Johns Hopkins University (JHU) scientist has for the first time witnessed a black hole swallowing a star and ejecting a flare of matter moving nearly the speed of light (about 300,000 km/s). The finding tracks the star, which is...

Black hole experiences massive X-ray flare

Black holes have always been one of the most mysterious and awe inspiring objects in space. Astronomers have known for some time that black holes periodically emit very powerful flares into space. New observations from NASA's Explorer missions Swift and the...

Stephen Crothers: General Relativity - A case study in numerology

For many people, Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity lies hidden behind an impenetrable wall of complicated mathematics, superposed upon the widespread misconception that only those smarter than the average bear, with a penchant for doing long sums, can...

Astrophysicists inching closer to the physics truth about black holes

I have been arguing for years that the so-called black holes are nothing more than extremely powerful magnetic field regions formed in dense space plasma. These regions are similar to sunspots and coronal holes. However, in extremely dense plasma - specifically at the

Monster black hole lurking inside one of the tiniest galaxies ever known

A supermassive blackhole has been found inside the tiniest galaxy ever found, the M60-UCD1, located about 54 million light years away from Earth. Researchers used NASA’s Hubble and the Gemini North 8-meter optical and infrared telescope on Hawaii to observe and

Cosmologist Laura Mersini-Houghton claims black holes do not exist

At the HowTheLightGetsIn festival in May, cosmologist Laura Mersini-Houghton released her groundbreaking research into black holes to the public for the first time. In the talk, Mersini Houghton presented groundbreaking new research that shows black holes may not exist.

Stephen Crothers: The Parallax Effect on Short Hair - EU2014

Stephen Crothers presented the case that Black Holes and the Big Bang have been created by theorists and never observed. Black Holes are now said to be both invisible and visible. Quasars are now black holes; so are the 'blazars'. Individual black holes are also

Supermassive black hole at the center of cosmology

In physical reality there are no black holes. Instead there are intense magnetic field regions that are formed whenever the field strength in plasma becomes much stronger compared with its surroundings. The most intense magnetic field regions are formed at the most

Highlights of The Electric Universe Theory

The "Electric Universe" is a hypothesis, a new way of interpreting scientific data in the light of new knowledge about plasma and electricity. In this interpretation, gravity plays a secondary role behind the far more powerful electric force, and electrified plasma in
