  • Chinese scientists found an elusive type of black hole by studying X-rays in an attempt to find stars orbiting an invisible object.
  • LB-1 is a stellar black hole with a mass equal to 70 Suns, 15,000 light years away.
  • What’s interesting, is that the theoretical mass limit for this type of black hole was capped at 20 Suns before this discovery.
  • This throws a wrench into black hole theory, and explaining this phenomenon could be a crucial step towards new discoveries about black holes.
