Isn't the black hole vs. galaxy mass relationship supposed to be a strong correlation, not an immutable law of nature?

Either way, you could get oddities like that from a galaxy-galaxy collision.

Mind-blowing quotes of the day...

"The supermassive black hole has a mass equivalent to 17 billion suns and is located inside the galaxy NGC 1277 in the constellation Perseus."

"The giant black hole is about 11 times as wide as the orbit of Neptune around our sun, researchers said. "

"It makes up about 14 percent of its host galaxy's mass, compared with the 0.1 percent a normal black hole would represent, scientists said."

Damn, space - you scary!

A GIS for "large black hole" wasn't as exciting as I expected it to be.

black hole the size of 17 billion suns

Thats amazing

Considering that it is 250 million light years away, I wonder how big it is by now

The event horizon of the giant black hole is about 11 times as wide as the orbit of Neptune around our sun, researchers said.

The black hole itself is, per our best knowledge, infinitely dwarfed by this dot ---> ·

As long as you're being pedantic, you're wrong. The black hole is the entire region of space enclosed by the event horizon, so the size of the black hole is the size of the event horizon. What you're referring to is the singularity at the center of the black hole.

Isn't Lindsay Lohan white? Why would she have a black hole? Subby must have that color blindness you hear about.

Maybe the room was dark? Otherwise, it woulda been a pink hole.
