Today we are going to talk about newly RGG 118 Black hole found outside of our galaxy. Black hole found in center of Galaxy. Black hole size is tinny but it contains mass 50,000 times more than our sun.

The smallest supermassive black hole ever identified is gobbling material at rates similar to its larger cousins, providing insights into how these behemoths evolve.

More about RGG 118 Black Hole

The smallest supermassive black hole ever detected in the center of a galaxy has been identified using observations with Chandra and the 6.5-meter Clay Telescope. The host galaxy for the tiny heavyweight black hole is a dwarf disk galaxy called RGG 118, shown in an image from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. The inset is a Chandra image of the galaxy’s center, showing hot gas near the black hole. This oxymoronic object could provide clues to how much larger black holes formed along with their host galaxies 13 billion years or more in the past.

Scientist are no so sure. There are controversy between scientist. Here are thesis
Scientists still aren’t sure exactly how supermassive black holesare born and grow. One idea posits that huge clouds of gas collapse into “seed” black holes, which merge over time to form the larger, supermassive black holes. Other researchers think they form when a giant star, approximately 100 times the mass of the sun, runs out of fuel and collapses into a black hole.
