Supermassive Black Holes May Be Lurking Everywhere in the Universe
"A near-record supermassive black hole discovered in a sparse area of the local universe indicate that these monster objects - this one equal to 17 billion suns - may be more common than once thought, according to UC Berkeley astronomers."
Supermassive Black Hole Found in Unlikely Cosmic Backwater
"One of the biggest black holes ever found sits in a cosmic backwater, like a towering skyscraper in a small town. Astronomers have spotted a supermassive black hole containing 17 billion times the mass of the sun-only slightly smaller than the heftiest known black hole, which weighs in at a maximum of 21 billion solar masses-at the center of the galaxy NGC 1600."
Supermassive Black Holes May Be More Common Than Anyone Imagined
"Scientists have discovered a supermassive black hole that may be the biggest ever spotted - and its location in a ho-hum group of galaxies suggests that cosmic monsters like this one might be more common than astronomers previously thought."
