Welcome to the 549th Carnival of Space! The Carnival is a community of space science and astronomy writers and bloggers, who submit their best work each week for your benefit. So now, on to this week’s stories! First up, over at the Chandra X Ray Observatory Blog, they have two articles about the The Billion-year […]
The IllustrusTNG Project has created a large and detailed simulation of the Universe. It’s helping us answer some important questions about the formation and evolution of…everything.
A new study from a team of astronomers from Northwestern University indicates that molecules could be born within the outflows created by supermassive black holes.

Thanks to a recent study by an international team of researchers, scientists now know why rapidly-spinning black holes blast out jets of charged particles.
Looking to the center of our galaxy, astronomers noted the presence of a mysterious filament extending from the supermassive black hole located there.
