Scientists have discovered that supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies may be growing faster than their host galaxies.
Two groups of scientists, using data from Chandra X-ray Observatory and other telescopes, have found evidence that the growth of the biggest black holes in the Universe is outrunning the rate of formation of stars in the galaxies they inhabit.
