"We discovered the most energetic quasar outflow ever seen, at least five times more powerful than any that have been observed to date
Astronomers have spotted an enormous black hole - the second most massive ever - but it resides in a tiny galaxy.
The galaxy NGC 1277, just a quarter the size of our own Milky Way, hosts a black hole 4,000 times larger than the one at the Milky Way's centre. A report in Nature shows it has a mass some 17 billion times that of our Sun.
