"TIGHTEST BLACK HOLE BINARY SYSTEM TO DATE DISCOVERED" Astronomers at Rochester Institute of Technology and the University of New Mexico have discovered what could be the closest pair of supermassive black holes yet, orbiting each other only a light-year apart. Located in the active galaxy of Mrk 533, observations by the scientists revealed a double radio source in the centre of the galaxy. If confirmed, this would mean that the supermassive black holes would have a combined mass of 400 million Suns. The closest pair of black holes known until now, discovered in the galaxy 0402+379, orbit each other 24 light-years apart. Although these black holes remain only as candidates, there are some factors that favour the double black hole scenario. For example, Mrk 533's stubby radio-emitting jets have a strange Z shape. “This morphology is thought to result from the combined effects of the galaxy merger followed by the formation of the massive binary,” says study coauthor David Merritt of Rochester Institute of Technology. Large galaxies are thought to increase in size by merging with other galaxies. Therefore, two merging galaxies would only naturally have two black holes, bound together in an inward-spiralling orbit. However such pairs - especially the tight-knit ones - have been surprisingly hard to find.

observing (a very small portion of) the universe to better understand the concept of and processes giving rise to electromagnetic radiation. arrays of telescopes like this one, dotted across the world, help humans better understand the universe and our place in it. the curiosity, humility, and capability implicit in the construction and continued operation of this array fills me with joy and pride in people. i can hardly think of a setting more appropriate, too. think biggest. #KarlGJanksy #VeryLargeArray #VLA #radiotelescope #astronomy #science #NewMexico #US60 #SanAugustinPlains #lifeisahighway #explore #travel #nomad

When Arthur Dent awoke that morning he realized there were demolition tools in front of his house.The house had to be demolished for a shortcut.Why didn't Arthur know about this?But,the demolition project was in the basement of the municipality for a long time.When he lay down to street,to prevent the bulldozers passing,his friend Ford Prefect came.He told it was very little time and he took him to a cafe.After the minutes,giant objects appeared on Earth.As Arthur thought he had the worst day of his life,Ford said to him,"I am an alien.”Yes,it's definitely the worst day.With the help of Ford,they were able to ride one of the spacecraft,but it was too late for the Earth.When Arthur asked what happened to Ford,the answer he received was quite ironic.They were destroying Earth to make a galactic shortcut.The adventure was just beginning for Arthur,who was still wearing throbe.But there was an important issue.A hitchhiker always should know where the towel. ➡Arthur Dent; a British novice interstellar hitchhiker Ford Prefect; a hitchhiker from the planet Betelgeuse Zaphod Beeblebrox; part-time president of the galaxy Marvin; the depressed robot who when he knows everything but the only thing he should do is meet the guests. #boo#bookram #book #scifi #science #scientist #fiction #sciencefiction #novel #android #robot #depressed #president #galaxy #british #universe #physics #astronomy #astrophysics #space #spacex #cosmos #elonmusk #tech #technology #future #tesla #car #england #bilim #kitap

regram @perfect_cleavage This is my favourite image from the Cassini-Huygens mission (RIP). It shows the 2nd largest of Saturn's 62 moons, Rhea with Epimetheus behind. NASA state that the two moons aren't actually close to each other, rather this view was obtained at a distance of approximately 1.2 million kilometers (746,000 miles) from Rhea and 1.6 million kilometers (994,000 miles) from Epimetheus. This is a processed image from Gordan Ugarkovic (2014), the original is available in monochrome from NASA (2010). #space #Saturn #moons #Rhea #epimetheus #cassini #Huygens #NASA #exploration #astronomy #science #cosmos #illgetbacktogeologyoneday

La cintura di Orione. In questa foto a grande campo sono presenti due delle nebulose più belle del nostro emisfero. La nebulosa Testa di Cavallo in centro e la Grande nebulosa di Orione sulla destra. Questo è il risultato di "soli" 20 minuti di esposizione da un buon cielo. The Orion belt. In this large field photo there are two of the most beautiful nebulae of our hemisphere. The Horse Head Nebula in the center and the Great Orion Nebula on the right. This photo is the result of "alone" 20 minutes of exposure from a good sky. 10x120" Canon 60D, Laowa 105mm #canon #astronomer #saturn #ast#astrophotohy #astronomy #astronomi #astronomia #earthonlocation #mil#milkywaychasers #lon#longexpo_shots #nightimages #nightshooterz #nightshooters #nightpics #milkywaygalaxy #astrophoto #ast#astro_photography> #astro_photography #longexpohunter #longexpo #amazing_longexpo #amazingearth #laowa #milkyway #telescope #space #nature #deepsky #skywatcher #science
