Black Hole Update

Also from, this article summarizing new discoveries about the supermassive black hole found at the center of the Milky Way. Recent observations seem to indicate its mass is 3.2 to 4 million suns, spinning around once every 30 seconds. And you thought figure skaters were impressive.

Just when you thought the universe couldn't get any weirder...

Update: an astute reader points out it's actually once every 11 minutes. Dur.
