It's the most massive black hole ever measured, and the thing escaped from one galaxy before getting captured by another. This is the first time astronomers observed such an event. Logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.

Remarkable, every black-hole needs a galaxy to spin into order eh?

All of these infinite and intricate wonders happened by chance?

I don't think so.

I am utterly terrified of black holes and yet they fascinate me to no end.

They have this reaction in most people since just adding the words "black hole" on titles usually increases the amount of readers for that book or article.
