Astronomers discover a supermassive black hole that traps 6 galaxies
The most recent supermassive black hole we have detected is located at the center of the SDSS J103027.09 052455.0 quasar. It has a mass of one billion times the mass of the Sun and such a powerful gravity that it traps as many as 6 galaxies closest to it. It should be emphasized that its gravitational tentacles extend over 300 times the diameter of the Milky Way. Interestingly, this black hole is a very old object that was formed only less than a billion years after the Big Bang.
