( The study was published online Wednesday in the Astrophysical Journal Letters under the title "NICER Discovers the Ultracompact Orbit of the Accreting Millisecond Pulsar IGR J1706266143."
Astrophysicists at Goethe University Frankfurt, and collaborators in the ERC-funded project BlackHoleCam in Bonn and Nijmegen have created and compared self-consistent and realistic images of the shadow of an accreting supermassive black hole -- such as the black-hole candidate Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*) in the heart of our galaxy -- both in general relativity and in a different theory of gravity.
A black hole can grow its size by accreting mater from the outside space or merging with other black holes, but cannot increase its total radiation energy.
''Quasars are precocious galaxies whose massive black holes began accreting matter, lighting them up when the universe was less than 800 million years old,'' Fan Xiaohui, of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, said.
They've steadily been accreting power since Nixon's departure, and through their sublime mix of flattery and back-stabbing, they now rule the town.
Little by little, a shelf is accreting which promises, some day, to offer the French reader a consistent if expensive selection of the author's major works.
John's accreting consciousness incorporates mobile, communal, and oral/syndetic processes of invocation as he searches for connections to, and through, his ancestors.
The team's Hubble Space Telescope observations confirm NGC 1277 has almost no young globular clusters, so NGC 1277 hasn't grown much by accreting other galaxies.
AGN could be used a proxy because they are highly variable in general, with their properties depending on the black hole's size and the rate at which it is accreting matter, among other factors.
Among the topics are the early evolution of Solar-type stars: star-disk interaction and the photometric variability of young accreting stars, the late stages of the evolution of massive stars seen by means of supernovae, luminosity functions of Arakelian galaxies and their environmental dependencies, magnetic fields at large scales and their connection with ultra-high energy cosmic rays, and ancient astronomy in Armenia.
The study's authors knew the ratio for carbonaceous chondrites and reasoned that if they could compare that to an object that was known to crystallize while Earth was actively accreting then they could gauge when water appeared on Earth.
29 ( ANI ): A team of astronomers have found at least one supermassive black holes (SMBH) almost always becomes active and luminous by accreting a large amount of material in luminous, gas-rich, merging galaxies.
There's a great confusion, with flocks of wide-eyed children in shorts and T-shirts materializing out of the shrubbery, a mountain of gear accreting on the lawn, a browsing chicken, and a fair amount of conversation--considering that none of us speaks Samoan.
Not unlike the "worrying" of prayer beads, the intricate manipulations exorcise (while at the same time retaining) some originary loss or doubt, which like his structures might seemingly continue accreting, forever.
