gobblers in the heavens

   have picked up some five super massive black holes previously unseen as they were hidden in clouds of dust and gas (the above is an artists impression of a black hole). The finding was unleashed upon the audience at the recent National Astronomy meeting in Llandudno (July 6th). Basically, what has been seen are high energy x-rays. It is a matter of faith that they represent physical evidence of black holes. It is also thought they were gobbling up lots of dust and gas – also a matter of faith – and emitting huge amounts of radiation.
