Fraser, the link did not work.

Here is what I would consider a 'very important' suggestion!

If you Know these researchers, you might suggest to them, that if they really want to test this, that they focus on finding the massive black hole in "The First Dark Matter Glaxy Found"

I would BET 5 of trinitree88's famous bottles of Chiannti, that there is one there!

I do not have any idea how this post got above Fraser's original post.;

Although black holes can't be seen directly, they're relatively easy to find. Matter spiraling into a black hole becomes superheated, shines brightly, and is visible across the Universe. A new supercomputer simulation has fine tuned the energy calculations for atoms in the vicinity of a black hole. This is very important, because astronomers working on black holes will base their assumptions on these atomic data. The new calculations bring the potential error rates down to a few percent, enhancing the accuracy of other research.
