Astronomers find best evidence for elusive mid-sized black hole

Washington: Astronomers have found the best evidence for a black hole of an elusive class known as “intermediate-mass” by using the combined power of two X-ray observatories and the keen vision of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope. Weighing in at about 50,000 times the mass of our Sun, the black hole is smaller than the supermassive […]

Hubble finds dwarf galaxy in our cosmic neighbourhood

Washington: Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have discovered a dwarf galaxy in a globular cluster which is only 30 million light-years away. The team used the NASA/ESA (European Space Agency) telescope to study white dwarf stars within the globular cluster NGC 6752. The aim of their observations was to use these stars to measure the age […]

NASA's Chandra telescope in safe mode due to glitch

Washington: Barely a week after NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope entered safe mode, its Chandra mission has also suffered a glitch possibly due to the failure of the gyroscope, the US space agency said. The Chandra X-Ray Observatory, observing the universe in high-energy light since 1999, has entered a protective “safe mode”, which interrupts scientific observations […]
