Black Holes Post #1

So this will be the first of a continuity of posts including information about black holes, something I am extremely interested in.

This particular article about newly discovered black holes entitled Thin Galaxies Harbour Big Secret describes how black holes may exist in the centers of flat galaxies, galaxies without the large bulge in the center, usually apparent when viewed from the side. Such bulges were thought to be directed linked to the size of a black hole that could form within a galaxy, but new research has discovered seven black holes that exist within galaxies that lack such bulges.

Anyhow, just a bit of interesting info. Cheers.
