Scientists Hear a Star’s ‘Screams’ As It’s Devoured By Blackhole
An artist's concept shows a black hole eating material from a nearby star. Researchers say its possible dark matter swirling around a black hole could radiate gamma rays that could be seen by telescopes.
A different astronomy and space science related image is featured each day, along with a brief explanation.
IC The Heart. Located in the Perseus arm of the Galaxy in the constellation Cassiopeia, this is an emission nebula showing glowing gas and darker dust lanes, formed by plasma of ionized hydrogen and free electrons.
Quasar: Quasars are believed to be powered by accretion of material into supermassive black holes.The light from a quasar is thought to be escaping energy generated at the event horizon, as gravity pulls objects to destruction at the black hole.
Will a black hole swallow our galaxy earlier than first thought?
A SUPERMASSIVE black hole gradually consuming our galaxy is growing at a more rapid rate than previously thought possible, new research has shown.
Hypothetical 'Rejuvenated' Planets
This artist's concept shows a hypothetical "rejuvenated" planet -- a gas giant that has reclaimed its youthful infrared glow.

Stars form within nebula NGC which lies in the constellation of Monoceros (The Unicorn). A dark nebula, such as this one, provides raw material for the star formation going on inside them.
First black hole orbiting a 'spinning' star - The Be-type star spins at extremely high velocity, ejecting matter through an equatorial disc; part of this matter falls on to the black hole, forming an accretion disc.
Okay this picture makes it easy for me to explain to the people who don't know what this really is, tilt your computer screen until the milky way is level with the ground(your computer will be sideways) now what you are doing is looking towards the center
