Einstein's theory of general relativity predicted plenty of amazing things, and to this day we're still making discoveries that back up his theories (or counter them). The latest such observation comes from the Max Planck Institute, where astronomers have watched how the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way pulls and stretches the light from a star as it makes its closest
Black holes seem to fall into two main categories: relatively small and supermassive. That leaves a huge empty middle ground, and astronomers have long proposed that there must be intermediate-mass black holes (IMBHs) somewhere in between. Now, scientists from the University of New Hampshire have captured the best evidence so far of the existence of these mysterious middleweights, as one e
It sounds strange to describe a black hole as "bright," but astronomers at Australian National University have spotted one so bright that were it in our home galaxy, it would outshine all the stars in the sky and even give the full moon a run for its money. This supermassive monster also happens to be the fastest-growing black hole ever seen, devouring the equivalent of the Sun every two d
Continuing our series celebrating Palm Springs Modernism Week, we're examining Hope Residence, the home that American architect John Lautner designed for comedian Bob Hope to resemble a volcano. Read more
Pour one out for the Nikon D810A. Its time has come to an end. Per B&H, the Nikon D810A has been discontinued and is no longer available for order. If you recall, the D810A was Nikon's first - and still only - full-frame DSLR dedicated to astrophotography. What made the D810A special was that it had a specialized IR cut filter which allowed for better capture of H-alpha emission nebulae.
The hole in the ozone layer was one of the most headline-hogging environmental issues of the 1980s and 90s, but an international ban on damaging chemicals have helped it recover in the 30 years since. It's long been known that the hole is shrinking, but a new study has measured the improving health of the ozone layer by analyzing the chemicals around the hole over the last decade or so...Cont
At a distance of about 13 billion lightyears, the most distant supermassive black hole known so far has been spotted by an international team of astronomers. That incredible distance means the object dates back to the time when the first stars blinked on, which raises the question of how a black hole that big arose so soon after the universe began...Continue Reading Mysterious black hole disc

After five detections over the last few years, gravitational waves are in danger of becoming boring news. But it's worth keeping in mind just how groundbreaking a discovery it is. After all, these are distortions in the very fabric of spacetime. The precise instruments at the LIGO and Virgo facilities were responsible for these past detections, but now astronomers plan to look for ripples fro
