Mauri studied Theoretical Physics, and graduated on his research into high-temperature superconductors. The walls of his office at the university are covered with equations. His research is entirely done on computers and paper. Mauri uses formulas to study superconductors at relatively high temperatures.

So just what is dark matter made of? Gravitational waves were first observed last September by the ground-based Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory LIGO , which scientists believed came from the collision of two black holes. But another astronomer saw that the ripples in space-time were much smaller than expected from mature black holes, and he theorized that they were made by primordial black holes PBH merging just after the dawn of the universe. Kashlinsky took the idea a step further and proposed in a recent paper that dark matter, which has been undefined, could be made of PBHs.
A new study proposes a method to tell how far any black hole is from reaching this end state. Black holes are some of the weirdest things in the universe. They occur when mass is packed into a tiny volume, squished to its ultimate density. Though observations suggest black holes are prevalent in the universe, scientists still don't really understand what goes on inside them. The equations of general relativity usually used to understand the physics of the universe break down in these cases.
In the century since Einstein predicted the existence of black holes in his theory of gravity, astrophysicists have turned up overwhelming evidence for the things. On Wednesday, astrophysicists announced they had captured the first-ever image of a black hole. The picture, taken over five days of observations in April using eight telescopes around the world by a collaboration known as the Event Horizon Telescope, depicts luminous gas swirling around a supermassive black hole at the center of M87, a galaxy 54 million light-years away. The event horizon is the edge of the spacetime abyss, where gravity is so strong that no light can escape from it. This black hole is about 6.
