black hole

Using their X-ray vision, astronomers have for the first time found two black holes in the same galaxy, and taken a peek inside a neutron star.
Plus is very proud to present Professor Stephen Hawking's own Birthday Symposium address.
What happens when one black hole meets another? Professor Kip Thorne shows us how to eavesdrop on these cosmic events by watching for telltale gravitational waves.
This issue of Plus is a special, marking the occasion of Stephen Hawking's 60th birthday. Plus attended his Birthday Conference in Cambridge, where we interviewed some of the world's most influential mathematicians and physicists.
