Astronomers Find Supermassive Black Hole In The Middle Of Nowhere

An international team of astronomers have found a supermassive black hole out on its own in the middle of nowhere.
The unexpected behemoth lies deep inside the isolated galaxy NGC 1600, around 200 million light years from the Milky Way.
“It’s a bit like finding a skyscraper in a Kansas wheat field, rather than in Manhattan,” said Chung-Pei Ma of the University of California Berkeley, who led the international team of researchers.
