One of the last untested predictions of Albert Einstein has been proven correct by astronomers in Chile. While watching a star pass by the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy, astronomers saw light from the star become stretched by the object, as the famed physicist predicted. Researchers hope to see a small change in the orbit of the star, which would confirm another prediction made in the General Theory of Relativity.Read More Einstein was Right – Here’s what a Black Hole has to Say!
For the first time ever, astronomers have witnessed a black hole swallowing a star. The event took place 150 million years ago in a pair of colliding galaxies called Arp 299. The black hole was 20 million times larger than our own Sun, and was seen consuming a body twice the size of our stellar companion.Read More Black Hole Seen Eating Star for First Time Ever
