Smallest Black Hole in the universe discovered!

    WASHINGTON, April 2 (Xinhua) — Two astronomers at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center have identified the smallest known black hole in the universe, according to the Astrophysical Journal on Wednesday.

    The two astronomers presented their results this week at an American Astronomical Society meeting.

    This black hole weighs the same as 3.8 of our Sun. But it’s a pipsqueak when compared to all other known black holes. Previously, the smallest known black hole would weigh about 6.3 times as much as the Sun, and some black holes tip the scales at millions or even billions of times that of our Sun.
