Maybe they can build a one-way space vehicle and send all our useless politicians into that black hole. Am sure Zuma will wet his pants in glee...

This has been known for a while has it not? I have watched like 2 or 3 documentaries that mention this.

I think it was only theorized, don't think they ever had actual proof?

How is this even closely related to broadband and IT news?

Seems the moderators have been failing quite a lot lately.

Most of the stuff about black holes and space is theorized, there is NEVER real proof.
The reason for it is because its all fictional.

It's more proof. That's how science works. Even Einstein's Theories as still being tested to this day.
Previously the biggest piece of evidence was based on long-term observations on stars orbiting the black hole, which gave us the initial size of the thing.

The title of the article is incorrect. It should have read: "More proof of supermassive black holes" or "Milky Way black hole larger than expected". But, they had to make it click bait'ey.

IIRC, this is even taught in Science at schools.

What i mean by fictional is that its blatant lies in this case. When I have time i will show you guys REAL PROOF/EVIDENCE of how they have been lying to us. Earlier this year i believed what you guys believed since the day I could start reading. I use too love all these science and sci-fi movies, series and documentaries. I even told my kids of how big space is and how small earth is in the bigger schemes of it.

It was a shock to my systems when i discovered how wrong I was.
