Black Hole Mystery

Very interesting article about Black holes. They are amazing natural phenomena that have teased scientists for a very long time. 

Black holes have long been cosmic mysteries, even as research in the past decade has shed some light on the largest of these dark objects and how matter pours into them.
Scientists say the many remaining puzzles include how the largestblack holes were born at the dawn of the universe and how black holes may help shape the fate of galaxies.
“The whole field of ‘massive black holes in galaxies‘ really developed in its own right in the last 12 years, and now it’s one of the hottest in astronomy,” Marta Volonteri, an astrophysicist at the Institute of Astrophysics in Paris, told SPACE.com. Volonteri is the author of a study on the evolution of the largest black holes appearing in the Aug. 3 issue of the journal Science.
