- The creation of supermassive black holes remains an open topic of research. However, many scientists have long believed the growth rate of black holes was limited, but this black hole is too large for that theory.
- Black holes grow, scientific theory suggests, as they absorb mass. However, as mass is absorbed, it will be heated creating radiation pressure, which pushes the mass away from the black hole.
- Basically, you have two forces balanced together which sets up a limit for growth, which is much smaller than what we found here," said the researcher.
