Supermassive Black Hole Seen in Tiny Galaxy called UCD3

A supermassive black hole has been discovered within a tiny galaxy called UCD3. This finding, carried out by an international team at the Very Large Telescope in Chile, is only the fourth of its kind. Star families like UCD3 have masses tens of millions of times greater than the Sun, sitting in clusters just 300 light years in diameter.

Researchers hope to see a small change in the orbit of the star, which would confirm another prediction made in the General Theory of Relativity.
