Scientists have found a new class of black holes that are larger than supermassive

Although there is evidence of the existence of supermassive black holes (SMBH) in the nuclei of galaxies - with a mass of 1 million

up to 10 billion solar masses, previousstudies have suggested an upper limit on their size. The reason is in scientists' understanding of how such black holes form and grow. However, the existence of even large SLABS can provide researchers with a powerful tool for cosmological research and improve our understanding of the early universe.

It is widely believed that SMBHs are formedinside the parent galaxy and grow to their size, absorbing stars and gas from their surroundings or merging with other black holes. In this case, there is an upper limit for their mass, slightly exceeding 10 billion solar masses.

In a new study, scientists suggest a differentthe possibility of supermassive black holes forming, which can bypass this limit. They suggest that such SLABs are "primitive" and could have formed in the early Universe, long before the appearance of galaxies.

Because "primitive" black holes do not form from a collapsing star, they can have a wide range of masses, including very small and colossal large ones.
