Nasa has found a monster black hole 100 million times the mass of the Sun feeding off gas, dust and stars at the centre of a galaxy 50 million light-years away.
The star-ringed black hole forms the eye of a galaxy called NGC-1097 which was photographed by the US space agency's Spitzer Space Telescope in California...

Well nothing much more to say but I thought the picture looked nice .

Also what do the electric universe people have to say about that one ? From what I remember the notion is that the black holes don't exist ? But don't that picture prove otherwise ?

Yep the universe is amazing , and I wish there was a way to see some more of it but more close up and personal
Manny times I wished I was born about 100-200 years into the future when (hopefully) mankind has some decent means of space exploration .

It seems every Galaxy has a super massive black hole in the middle of them.. Although this one seems to be a monster..
I think there just learning the very early tidbits of info of how galaxies are propelled/work. The speed of some of the stars that are on the edge of these black holes are Unbelievably Fast.

Well, they have known for years there are black holes in the centers of galaxies.. Thought that was in the school teachings by now !?

Something has to drive the galaxies, same with the planets, something must make them spin...
