  • An Intriguing New Member of the Black Hole Family Tree (26 Feb 2015)
    A newly discovered cosmic object may help provide answers to some long-standing questions about how black holes evolve and influence their surroundings, according to Mezcua et al. (2015, MNRAS, in press), who observed it with Chandra and the European VLBI Network. This intriguing object, called NGC2276-3c, is located in an arm of the spiral galaxy NGC 2276. With an inferred mass of 50,000 solar masses, it appears to be an 'intermediate-mass black hole' or IMBH.
  • NASA, ESA Telescopes Give Shape to Furious Black Hole Winds (19 Feb 2015)
    Five simultaneous observations by Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) and the XMM-Newton observatory are showing that fierce winds from a supermassive black hole in PDS 456 blow outward in all directions -- a phenomenon that had been suspected, but difficult to prove until now. See Nardini et al. (2015, Science, 346, 860) for the full details.
