Extremely Rare “Wandering” Supermassive Black Hole Discovered Racing Through Space!
Astronomers have detected a supermassive black hole moving through space, but do not yet know what is propelling it through the cosmos. This rare occurrence was found by comparing the speed and direction of supermassive black holes with their home galaxies. Scientists would expect the velocities of the black holes to match those of the galaxies, with any change in direction or speed being evidence of disruption. Check out this episode of Spacefix to find out more!
