Just like the smallest stores can fit massive crowds on Black Friday, this small galaxy contains a supermassive black hole. Astronomers using data from our Hubble Space Telescope have found this unlikely object in an improbably place — a monster black hole lurking inside one of the tiniest galaxies ever known.
