Scientists just further confirmed what has long been believed: that there’s a supermassive black hole scientists named Sagittarius A* at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. This mind-blowing 1.5-minute video zooms in from a wide view of the night sky into the tiny little area where the latest telescopic observations were just made.In a paper published on October 31st, 2018, scientists at th
A white dwarf is one of the last stages of life for stars of a certain size, and it's all downhill from there – with no new source of energy, the object will gradually fade away into obscurity. But supercomputer simulations run by astronomers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) suggest that these dying stars could be reignited by a close encounter with an enigmatic class of bl
Ben Esposito spent six years of his life making a wonderful game about a hole that eats up a California county -- and he learned a lot along the way. ...

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
