Astronomers say they have observed Albert Einstein's theory of gravitational redshift for the first time while observing a star known as S2 interact with a supermassive black hole using the Very Large Telescope (VLT).
Scientists at the European Southern Observatory announce the discovery of isotopes of carbon-13 on TYC 8998-760-1 b, an exoplanet located 300 light-years away from the Musca constellation. The discovery was made via the Very Large Telescope in Chile.
Astronomers announce the crescent shadow of Messier 87's supermassive black hole is wobbling. Back in April 2019, the Event Horizon Telescope captured the crescent shadow of the black hole, making it the first image ever taken of a black hole.
A study published to the journal "Nature" finds dozens of potential stellar mass black holes in the Galactic Center, suggesting there may be as many as 20,000 orbiting the supermassive black hole Sagittarius A*.
Astronomers at the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile track the motion of gas giant Beta Pictoris b, the first time an extra-solar planet is tracked in orbit around a young star.
