Submission + - Heaviest black hole ever found (msn.com)

Lucas123 writes: "Astronomers say they've discovered a black hole whose mass of 24 to 33 times that of our sun defies current theories to explain its formation. The hole is located in the nearby dwarf galaxy IC 10, 1.8 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Cassiopeia. The dead star from which the hole could have derived is estimated to have had a mass of about 60 or more solar masses."
