Evidence for the farthest cloaked black hole found in early universe

Astronomers have discovered evidence for the farthest "cloaked" black hole found to date, using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory.

Where in the universe can you find a black hole nursery?

Now, it is possible for astronomers to track down the black hole nursery, thanks to a new model developed by gravitational wave researchers at the University of Birmingham.

Milky Way’s central black hole puts theory of general relativity to the test
