NASA scientists have identified the smallest black hole ever found -- less than four times the mass of our sun and about the size of a large city.

"This black hole is really pushing the limits. For many years astronomers have wanted to know the smallest possible size of a black hole, and this little guy is a big step toward answering that question," Nikolai Shaposhnikov of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, said in a statement.

Only the size of a city , yet still a black hole .. awesome , and dangerous also .

If u get a tiny black hole does this constitute a wormhole? if a singularity?

I personally think that somehow black holes Power space time as we know it , sucking time and matter away .. to where?

And wonder if there is any object .. 1, returning the time/matter , or 2 creating new time/matter to replace what is lost , our universe may be a giant recycling plant.
