Astronomers Discover a Black Hole That Grew Much Quicker Than Its Host Galaxy

Researchers have rescued a black hole that grew most some-more fast than a horde galaxy. The find calls into doubt prior assumptions on a growth of galaxies.

In Jul 2015, researchers announced a find of a black hole, shown in a above illustration, that grew most some-more fast than a horde galaxy. The find calls into doubt prior assumptions on a growth of galaxies. The black hole was creatively rescued regulating NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, and was afterwards rescued in a Sloan Digital Sky Survey and by ESA’s XMM-Newton and NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory.

Benny Trakhtenbrot, from ETH Zurich’s Institute for Astronomy, and an general group of astrophysicists, achieved a follow-up regard of this black hole regulating a 10 scale Keck telescope in Hawaii and were astounded by a results. The data, collected with a new instrument, suggested a hulk black hole in an differently normal, apart galaxy, called CID-947.
