The formation of supermassive black holes in the very early universe
Helsinki, Finland (SPX) Mar 15, 2017
Observations in the past decade have demonstrated that extremely massive supermassive black holes were already in place when the Universe was less than 800 million years old. Supermassive black holes found at the centres of galaxies typically have masses of millions up to even billions of solar masses, whereas the black holes formed in the collapse of massive stars have masses around 5-20 solar masses. "The observations of extremely massive black holes in the very early Universe are somewhat surpr ... read more
