The size of Ton 618 and/or Phoenix A (if it proves to be a blackhole) is seriously staggering. I don't think the experts know a way of how a blackhole that big could actually form.  

Any guesses?

also, this one for all y'all who were discussing black holes a few weeks ago (RIP lost discussions) i believe everything in here was stated as correctly as possible (with caveats/etc. used when necessary):

so apparently some micrometeorite hit some spaceship that was supposed to bring some astronauts back from the ISS but they're stranded cause the impact made a hole and now there's a fuel leak... just saw it now on CNN but can't find it on the web?

 

btw

According to the transition report sent to Congress, NASA operators will direct the ISS toward a region in the Pacific Ocean called the South Pacific Oceanic Uninhabited Area – specifically around Point Nemo – in early 2031, when it will reenter the atmosphere and crash into the water.

 

"It's the safest place to bring down a big spacecraft that's reached the end of its life," Wall added. "It's pretty big, you know, it's as long as a football field ."
