BEIJING (CNN) — A “monster black hole” has been discovered by scientists.
But they say it’s so big that it shouldn’t actually exist.
It’s a stellar black hole which is the kind that forms following the death or explosion of a massive star.
Prior to this discovery, researchers thought the size limit was less than 30-times the mass of the sun.
But this black hole, known as LB-1, appears to debunk that theory.
Its mass is 70-times larger than the sun, according to the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
