2 07 2009

Only two sizes of black holes have been discovered: small, and super-massive. Scientists have always thought there has to be a medium sized black hole but never could find one. Well they did find one, with a mass of 500 times the size of our sun. Researchers from France discovered the black hole in a galaxy about 290 million light years away from Earth.
