New algorithm developed at MIT for imaging black holes

In theory, we can pick that up with a good old radio telescope.“It’s equivalent to taking an image of a grapefruit on the moon, but with a radio telescope.

This supermassive black hole feeds on frigid gas

The BCG is a giant elliptical galaxy, tens of thousand light years across, with a supermassive black hole at its core.Streaking toward the Brightest Cluster black hole are three enormous, lumpy clouds of cold gas, and they’re all raining into the black hole at the same time.

This quantum ruler is the latest win against the many ‘nevers’ of quantum science

Its wavelengths, as we were able to create and use them, were in many cases too large for our purposes — even in the smallest range.Yet today, high-level quantum experiments regularly use entanglement as a tool to make even larger discoveries.

Scientists will try to directly image Sagittarius A*, the black hole at the center of the Milky Way

Scientists will try to directly image Sagittarius A*, the black hole at the center of the Milky Way To date, we haven’t yet directly imaged a black hole.To solve this problem, eight observatories have joined forces to form the Event Horizon Telescope.

New telescope chip enables clearer view of alien worlds

New telescope chip enables clearer view of alien worlds The new development comes in the form of an optical chip that can be used to upgrade an existing telescope.Steve Madden said the chip worked much like active noise-canceling headphones.
