SDSSp J1306: Precocious Supermassive Black Holes Challenge Theories
NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has obtained definitive evidence that a distant quasar contains a fully-grown supermassive black hole generating energy at the rate of twenty trillion Suns - Chandra X-ray Observatory Center
Seismic Shaking Erased Small Impact Craters On Asteroid Eros
University of Arizona scientists have discovered why Eros, the largest near-Earth asteroid, has so few small craters - University of Arizona
