A supermassive black hole is found 12 billion times the mass of our sun.

About 1.3 million Earths would fit in our sun, but this latest discovery has found a supermassive black hole so astonishingly huge that it could be 12¬†billion times the solar mass of the sun. There was a previously held theory that supermassive black holes had a limit to how fast they could grow, but this discovery is challenging those ideas. This one in particular, was born nearly a billion years after the Big Bang. Check out the story here from NBC News and check out the video below from Discovery‘s “How The Universe Works” on how black holes on formed.
