At its heart lurks a supermassive black hole, and it is a monster—billions of times more massive than the sun, and a hundred billion times brighter than the sun—one of the most powerful objects in the Universe. Supermassive black holes are always massive (by definition), but they’re not always as bright as the one in Hercules A. Often they are quite dark, lurking silently in space. In fact, astronomers think that most galaxies—and maybe even all galaxies—harbor one of these monsters at the center. ...
