Astrophysicists have discovered what is believed to be a medium-sized black hole over 290 million light years away. The new class of black hole may help shed light on how supermassive black holes are formed.
Only two sizes of black holes have ever been spotted: small and super-massive. Scientists have long speculated that an intermediate version must exist, but they’ve never been able to find one until now."
