Why do we not see midsized black holes in the Universe? 


The brightest flash of light in the cosmos could be a rare event involving a star and a supermassive black hole

A small black hole gains mass: Dense cold gas (green) flows toward the center of a stellar cluster (red cross in blue circle) with stars (yellow); the erratic path of the black hole through the gas (black line) is randomized by the surrounding stars

A new model shows how early black holes could have grown to over a billion solar masses
