New observations with ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile have revealed alignments over the largest structures ever discovered in the Universe. A European research team has found that the rotation axes of the central supermassive black holes in a sample of quasars are parallel to each other over distances of billions of light-years. The team has also found that the rotation axes of these quasars tend to be aligned with the vast structures in the cosmic web in which they reside. (ESO)

Cat's Eye Nebula

Cat's Eye Nebula / 'Cosmos' is a Greek word for the order of the universe. In a way, it's the opposite of 'Chaos.' It implies the deep interconnectedness of all things. It conveys awe for the intricate and subtle way in which the universe is put together.

Wormhole travel across the universe and supergiant black holes are just some of the wonders seen in the film 'Interstellar.' See how the film's astrophysics works in this Space.com infographic.

Astronomers have discovered the largest known structure in the universe, a clump of active galactic cores that stretch 4 billion light-years from end to end. The structure is a light quasar group (LQG), a collection of extremely luminous Galactic Nulcei powered by supermassive central black holes!

Here we can see a medium sized star (just like our SUN) getting sucked by a black hole passing by, accretion disc is formed, but the twin jets are missing. That's because star is a medium sized star and not that energetic to make it a quasar.

New Telescope to Take First-Ever Black Hole Photo - A group of astronomers are meeting this week to plan out an ambitious and unprecedented project — capturing the first-ever image of a black hole.    The researchers want to create an Earth-size virtual instrument called the Event Horizon Telescope, a worldwide network of radio telescopes powerful enough to snap a picture of the supermassive black hole at the heart of our Milky Way galaxy.

Schwarzschild wormhole geometry, with white and black holes..... cool.

What is a Wormhole? - A wormhole is a theoretical passage through space-time that could create shortcuts for long journeys across the universe. Wormholes are predicted by the theory of general relativity. | Space

What is a Wormhole? A wormhole is a theoretical passage through space-time that could create shortcuts for long journeys across the universe. Wormholes are predicted by the theory of general relativity. But be wary: wormholes bring with them the dangers o
