A black hole is an area in space in which nothing,including light, can escape because it contains a lot of mass concentrated in it. The black hole iscalled "black" because it attracts and absorbs all the light that strikes it. The three types of blackholes are stellar black holes, miniature black holes and supermassive black holes. Asupermassive black hole is the largest type of black hole in the galaxy and it has a mass of morethan 10 billion solar masses. Supermassive black holes are located in the center of most galaxies,including the Milky Way. Supermassive black holes are distinguished from lower-mass blackholes by their unique properties. Supermassive black holes have a common density that is verylow, that is even lower than the density of air.Theories of Black Holes:To begin, according to the Article, “Supermassive Black Holes” it states,“Unlikestellar black holes, the origins of supermassive black holes and the evolution of galaxiesremain a mystery because the nuclei of galaxies are often hidden from observation by dense dustand gas”.1That being said, Even though astronomers don't entirely know how supermassiveblack holes are formed, there are many theories. One theory on how they are formed is that an
