Astronomers Find Recoiling Supermassive Black Hole


Astronomers recently found a possible black hole that is recoiling at a very high speed. The hole is visible with X-rays and is not in the center of the galaxy. To find the black hole the astronomers must compare many X-rays and find a match. This black hole is considered a supermassive black hole. This hole also weighs more than 1 billion times the mass of the sun.

I think this black hole is dangerous. Since it is going at such a high speed it could possibly destruct many rocks and asteroids in the galaxy. That could cause many meteors to crash into the earth. I think we should watch the black hole carefully. If it causes any damage we could see more asteroids or meteors fall in sequence.
