Scientists around the world are gearing up for an important announcement from the European Southern Observatory. The international space agency may have finally captured a photo of a black hole's event horizon.

Researchers used an X-ray signal from a star being ripped apart to study a supermassive black hole. Researchers claim that this is the first time that tidal disruption flare to estimate the speed in which a black hole spins.

A mathematician said that a particular type of non-rotating black hole with an electrical charge and a cauchy horizon within the event horizon has a reset button. It can reset the past and complicate the future.

Analysis of Pan-STARRS data strengthened the idea that black holes are bounded by an event horizon. How did the new research strengthen Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity?

Astronomers have successfully peered inside a black hole to take an image of its event horizon. What does this new development from the Event Horizon Telescope means in testing Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity?

Einstein's theory of relativity predicts that all information that crosses the event horizon will be lost, but quantum mechanics states information can never be lost. How can the Event Horizon Telescope help solve the black hole information paradox?

A supermassive black hole will have no trouble sucking in objects in space, including a much smaller black hole. Theoretical physicists have come up with a simpler equation to demonstrate the moment the two black holes’ event horizons meet.

Astronomers were able to detect a magnetic field just outside a black hole at the center of the Milky Way. The discovery is the first time that resolution of magnetic fields has been made.

Stephen Hawking, one of the most important physicists and cosmologists of the 20th century, proposes that there is a way out of black holes — through Hawking radiation

Stephen Hawking has stunned the scientific community and the whole world with his new theory on black holes - they do not exist. The physicist also said he regrets his initial theory on event horizon. It was his "biggest blunder," Hawking said.
