A pair of monster black holes revealed in a nearby galaxy Astronomers from China and Europe have identified a pair of active supermassive black holes in the nearby giant spiral galaxy NGC 5252.


Earth-size telescope tracks the aftermath of a star being swallowed by a supermassive black hole Radio astronomers have used a radio telescope network the size of the Earth to zoom in on a unique phenomenon in a distant galaxy: a jet activated by a star being consumed by a supermassive black hole. The record-sharp observations reveal a compact and surprisingly slowly-moving source of radio waves.

An international team of radio astronomers led by Jun Yang (Onsala Space Observatory, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden) studied the new-born jet in a source known as Swift J1644+57 with the European VLBI Network (EVN), an Earth-size radio telescope array.
