Reality trumps science once again

Science can be really helpful when it comes to solving parts of the universal puzzle.  Nevertheless, when looking at the big (gigantic) picture, science often falls woefully short.

Such was recently the case when scientists
discovered the “mother” of all known black holes.  CNN reports that researchers “detected a supermassive black hole at the center of a newly found galaxy that’s far bigger than current theories allow.”

According to current theories about how “galaxies evolve,” this huge hole is “30 times larger than expected for this size of galaxy.”  New theories will now need to be devised in order to explain why the old ones didn’t quite work.
