London, February 28 ( ANI ): An international team has definitively measured the spin rate of a supermassive black hole for the first time, using the two X-ray space observatories, NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) and the European Space Agency's XMM-Newton.

Astronomers have known for about a decade that perhaps every large galaxy in the universe has a dark heart, where a supermassive black hole lurks, sequestered in secret.
The finding corroborates simulations by Gebhardt and a collaborator that suggest supermassive black holes in other nearby galaxies are also about twice as heavy as had been calculated (SN: 7/4/09, p.
US astronomers said the so-called supermassive black holes were formed when two separate galaxies collided.
An analysis of the Chandra data, along with infrared data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and radio data from the NSF's Very Large Array, suggests that the black hole is near the extreme low-mass end of the supermassive black hole range.
