Rare intermediate-mass black hole found tearing apart star

Rare intermediate-mass black hole found tearing apart star

The science community is confident in the existence of supermassive black holes, which are billions of times as massive as the Sun, and of stellar-mass black holes, which have masses only five to 30 times that of the Sun. But the existence of intermediate-mass black holes (IMBHs), whose size falls somewhere in the middle, has […]
