Super massive black holes contain enough energy to cause untold galactic devastation scientists have found.
There is a super massive black hole at the center of most galaxies including our own, scientists have found that the energy output from those within particularly massive galaxies is so great that they could strip apart every other massive galaxy in the universe 25 times over.
Black holes might kill entire galaxies with blazing energy, dooming embryonic stars before they can get born and condemning the remaining stars to a slow death, scientists have found.
