Hiding Black Hole Found
28-February-2019

Astronomers have detected a stealthy black hole from its effects on an interstellar gas cloud. This intermediate mass black hole is one of over 100 million quiet black holes expected to be lurking in our Galaxy. These results provide a new method to search for other hidden black holes and help us understand the growth and evolution of black holes.

Dark Matter May be Hitting the Right Note in Small Galaxies
27-February-2019

New study finds dark matter may scatter against each other only when they hit the right energy, which could explain why galaxies from the smallest to the biggest have the shapes they do.

ALMA Differentiates Two Birth Cries from a Single Star -Strong evidence of independent origins for two gas flows
26-February-2019

Astronomers have unveiled the origins of two different gas streams from a baby star. Using ALMA, they found that the slow outflow and the high speed jet from a protostar have misaligned axes and that the former started to be ejected earlier than the latter. These indicate that streams were launched from different parts of disk around the protostar.
