Astronomers have discovered an enormous black hole that is moving through space and they have no idea why. They are calling this a “supermassive black hole.”

“We don’t expect the majority of supermassive black holes to be moving,” an astronomer for the Center for Astrophysics, Harvard & Smithsonian said. “They’re usually content to just sit around.”

Scientists studied ten black holes in faraway galaxies and found that nine of them were not moving but one, J0437+2456, located 230 million light-years away from Earth, is moving at a speed of 110,000 miles per hour. Scientists call this one “restless.”
