It’s not easy growing a supermassive black hole - Livestream

When we think of black holes, we often think of them as endless hoovers, sucking up anything around them. In reality, it’s very difficult to grow a black hole; to get matter close enough to that point of no return. Instead, most matter will happily orbit a black hole. Just like the Earth orbits the Sun, the Sun orbits a supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way over 4 million times more massive than the Sun itself.

Join astrophysicist Rebecca Smethurst as she reveals how supermassive black holes like this got so big.
