Mega black hole twice as big as thought

7 posts in this topic

It sits at the centre of the M87 galaxy and weighs the same as 6.4 billion suns, this supermassive black hole situated over 55 million light years from the Earth is now believed to be twice as massive as previously thought.

"The black hole at the centre of the M87 galaxy may be twice as big as originally thought - possibly large enough to measure directly. M87 is 55 million light years away. Its central black hole devours vast amounts of gas and spews out a huge jet of particles that extends far into intergalactic space."
