The Hard X-ray Modulation Telescope (HXMT) is the first astronomical satellite of China
Supermassive black holes exist in the centre of most, if not all, galaxies. An open question in astrophysics, however, is how these enormous black holes, that weigh billion times the mass of the sun, existed in the early universe.

A map has been created that shows all the sources the XMM-Newton X-ray telescope has detected as it moves between specific targets (slew paths).
Astrophysicists used the NuSTAR X-ray telescope to study 52 supermassive black holes (SMBHs) in nearby merging galaxies to improve our understanding of the relationship between a black hole and the galaxy it lives in.
