Gravity's Relentless Pull: An interactive, multimedia website about black holes for Education and Public Outreach [article]

Roeland P. van der Marel, Gijs Verdoes Kleijn
2006 arXiv   pre-print
The site starts with an opening animation that introduces the basic concept of a black hole.  ...  This journey proceeds through three modules, which allow the user to: find black holes in the night sky; travel to a black hole in an animated starship; and explore a black hole from up close.  ...  A full list of credits is available at http://hubblesite.org/discoveries/black holes/credits.html . We would also like to thank Bob Brown for editorial assistance with this article.  ...

Primordial Kerr Black Holes [article]

Alexandre Arbey, Jérémy Auffinger, Joseph Silk
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In particular, we will discuss the possibility to distinguish between black holes of primordial and of stellar origins based on the Thorne limit on their spin.  ...  Primordial Black Holes (PBHs) are appealing candidates for dark matter in the universe but are severely constrained by theoretical and observational constraints.  ...  We have discussed the possibility of having nearly extremal spin PBHs and studied constraints from EGRB radiation. We have also considered P9 as a potential PBH in the Solar System.  ...

Afterglows from the largest explosions in the universe

D. H. Hartmann
1999 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
The distinction of "largest explosions in the universe" has been bestowed on cosmic gamma-ray bursts. Their afterglows are brighter than supernovae and therefore are called hypernovae.  ...  Photometry and spectroscopy of these afterglows have provided major breakthroughs in our understanding of this mysterious phenomenon.  ...  The study of GRBs is currently in a super-charged phase, with progress occurring rapidly.  ...

How the Hubble Telescope cheated death

Alexandra Witze
2015 Nature  
This was the first definitive observation of a supermassive black hole in the core of another galaxy.  ...  In this way you could actually study populations of stars and map out their properties. The public responded to the flood of gorgeous imagery. Hubble became NASA's first Internet sensation.  ...

Probabilistic IP prefix authentication (PIPA) for prefix hijacking

Akmal Khan, Ted "Taekyoung" Kwon, Hyunchul Kim
2009 Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Future Internet Technologies - CFI '09  
That is, PIPA determines the authenticity of the pair (IP prefix, AS path) in BGP messages by using historical stability of the BGP information and internet registry data.  ...  We also discuss how to recover the hijacked IP prefixes in PIPA.  ...  Then, routers may start switching to the more recently announced AS path than the old one. What happens is that all the traffic for the hijacked prefix will be black holed.  ...
