Three supermassive black holes discovered at the core of one galaxy
by Sarah Hönig published Nov 21, 2019 last modified Dec 18, 2019 11:27 AM — filed under: , ,
21 November 2019. An international research team led by scientists from Göttingen and Potsdam have for the first time shown that the galaxy NGC 6240 contains three supermassive black holes. The unique observations, published in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, reveal the black holes close to each other in the core of the galaxy. The study points to simultaneous merging processes during the formation of the largest galaxies in the universe.

An overlooked piece of the solar dynamo puzzle
by Sarah Hönig published Oct 28, 2019 last modified Oct 28, 2019 10:28 AM — filed under: , ,
28 October 2019. A previously unobserved mechanism is at work in the Sun’s rotating plasma: a magnetic instability, which scientists had thought was physically impossible under these conditions. The effect might even play a crucial role in the formation of the Sun’s magnetic field, say researchers from Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR), the University of Leeds and the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP).
