Radio astronomers see black hole come to life42 million light years away, 20 million times the mass of the Sun, and coming back to life. A team of radio astronomers, led by Dr Megan Argo of the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics, and JIVE astronomer Dr Ilse van Bemmel, are watching a previously dormant black hole wake up in a dramatic display as material falls on to it for the first time for perhaps millions of years.
€15 million boost for European astronomyAstronomers and astroparticle physicists today are celebrating a €15 million EU funding boost for European telescopes with the launch of the ASTERICS project (Astronomy ESFRI and Research Infrastructure Cluster), which will help solve the Big Data challenges of European astronomy and give members of the public direct interactive access to some of the best of Europe's astronomy images and data.
