Summary by Ground News
Astronomers find a black hole at the heart of the dwarf galaxy Henize 2-10. The black hole is apparently contributing to the firestorm of new star formation. The dwarf galaxy lies 30 million light-years away, in the southern constellation Pyxis. This new discovery could help solve the mystery of where black holes came from.
