Supermassive black holes are the most massive objects in the universe, with masses ranging from 10 to 40 billion times that of the sun.

British astronomers have discovered a supermassive black hole with a mass about 33 billion times that of the Sun. This was reported by The Independent.

“This particular black hole, which is about 30 billion times the mass of our Sun, is one of the most discovered ever. It’s at the upper end of how big black holes can be in theory, so it’s an exciting discovery,” he said. Dr. James Nightingale, Department of Physics, Durham University.

To see this black hole, researchers used a phenomenon known as gravitational lensing, when they enlisted the help of a nearby galaxy, which turned it into a giant magnifying glass.

Scientists note that this method may make it possible to detect many more black holes outside our universe. They also believe that they are located at the center of all large galaxies such as the Milky Way.

It was previously reported that the Webb Space Telescope had discovered a new exoplanet. It is located near the Earth.
