Collision of black holes could accelerate the expansion rate of the universe

Scientists may have found a way to use black hole collisions to measure how fast the universe is expanding and solve some of the mysteries surrounding dark energy, the mysterious force that causes space to speed up. cosmic expansion. The violent mergers of black holes launch ripples in space-time called gravitational wavesand the new technique … Read more

The Northern Lights could reach New York, Chicago and Portland on Wednesday evening

Plasma flares from the sun are heading towards Earth and will likely cause a geomagnetic storm. This could bring the Northern Lights south to New York, Chicago and Portland on Wednesday evening. Solar storms can disrupt radio, GPS, satellites and other technologies. Loading Something is loading. Flares of electrically charged plasma from the sun could … Read more

Astrophysicists ‘solve a fundamental signature of gravity around a black hole’

The emission from M87 has now been resolved into a bright, thin ring (map colored orange), resulting from the infinite sequence of additional images of the emission region, and the more diffuse primary image, produced by the photons that come directly towards the Earth (in blue outlines). When viewed at Event Horizon Telescope imaging resolution, … Read more
