    For the first time astronomers have observed the merging of the supermassive black holes from two galaxies.

    New observations of super massive black holes suggest they're more like three dimensional fountains rather than donuts.

    Black hole ASASSN-14li is spinning at least half the speed of light completing one rotation in about two minutes. It's 290 million light years away and is roughly the same size as the supermassive black hole in the center of our galaxy Sagittarius A*.

    Two supermassive blackholes merging should produce impressive gravity waves.

    Like I said, it is black and hole shaped.

    Don't get more black holey than that.

    The black hole M87* is larger than our entire solar system. It's in the supergiant galaxy Messier 87, Virgo A, NGC 4486 or M87.

    Here's how big the M87 black hole is compared to Earth

    Well it seems it was one youtube video which claimed that, I did not even know of it until you posted it, but still I am so sick and tired of people making an issue of everything as being either racial or political...
