Submission + - 'Seeds' of Supermassive Black Holes Discovered (

astroengine writes: "The very existence of intermediate black holes (IMBHs) is in dispute, but a group of astronomers of Keio University, Japan, have found the potential locations of three IMBH candidates inside previously unknown star clusters near the center of the Milky Way. Using the 10-meter Atacama Submillimeter Telescope Experiment (ASTE) in the Atacama Desert, Chile, and the 45-meter Nobeyama Radio Observatory (NRO) in Japan, they hunted for the emissions from molecular gases associated with supernovae in star clusters — what they discovered could help evolve our view on how supermassive black holes form."
