"Our universe may exist inside a black hole

The team believes they have found part of the solution to this puzzle by calculating the likely 'escape speed' a cluster needs to have to be able to host a black hole
with a mass above 50 M?.
So this type of black hole
should not exist, at least according to the current astronomical theories, but it does.
EHT's lead astronomer, Shepherd Doeleman said that humanity is being given its first view of a black hole
, which is a one-way door out of our universe.
are objects with such strong gravity that everything, including light, is sucked in and cannot escape.
Mar Mezcua (Institute of Space Sciences, Spain) and colleagues pored through the Chandra COSMOS Legacy Survey to find 40 dwarf galaxies with actively feeding, middleweight black holes
. The team used this fraction of active black holes--roughly 10% --as a proxy for the total fraction of black holes
, arguing in the August 1st Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society that the low number favors the latter, direct-collapse model.
Scientists have discovered not one but 10,000 black holes
at the centre of ourgalaxy, the Milky Way.
Supermassive black holes
can also pull in black holes
from elsewhere, but until now the search for them has proved fruitless.
Astronomers spot black holes
by observing the patterns of objects that encircle the black hole
or watch the demise of a star as it releases energy.
The newly discovered supersized black hole
resides in the center of a massive elliptical galaxy, NGC 1600, located in a cosmic backwater, a small grouping of 20 or so galaxies, said lead discoverer Chung-Pei Ma, a University of California-Berkeley astronomer and head of the MASSIVE Survey, a research project analyzing vast galaxies and supermassive black holes
in the universe.
Washington, May 24 ( ANI ): A team of astronomers using NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) to survey more than 170,000 supermassive black holes
have now decided to re-examine a decades-old theory about the varying appearances of these interstellar objects.
Lead researcher Professor Chris Done, in the department of physics, said: "We know the black hole
in the centre of each galaxy is linked to the galaxy as a whole, which is strange because black holes
are tiny in relation to the size of a EXPERTS from our region have made a discovery about 'supermassive' black holes
which could lead to a better understanding of how they help galaxies grow.
