A newly discovered supermassive black hole, has surprised scientists by being way too large for its galaxy. Generally there is a relationship between the size of galaxy and its central black hole. Typically the central black hole has only about 0.1% the mass of the galaxy. The previous record was 11% however the supermassive black hole at the center of NGC 1277 has a mass that is a whopping 59% of the mass of the galaxy. Furthermore this supermassive black hole has a mass of 17 billion suns which is huge compared to the Milky Way's central black hole of 4 million solar masses. However this monster of a black hole is found at the center of a galaxy that is just 10% of the mass of the Milky Way.
This was a surprise for the astronomers because it does not fit their models of how galaxies form. However there is a creation model proposed by Dr
