What has Hubble told us about black holes?

28 February 2011

One of Hubble’s mission objectives at launch was to study black holes, and to test the theory that supermassive black holes lurk in the centres of many galaxies. Two decades later, Hubble has helped solve that mystery — and in the process, asked new questions that have astronomers scratching their heads. The Hubblecast’s Dr J, aka Dr Joe Liske, takes us on a journey through some of Hubble’s work on black holes, and busts a few myths along the way.
