Black Holes Raze Thousands of Stars to Fuel Growth

Chandra issued an image release and press release on April 20, 2022, "Black Holes Raze Thousands of Stars to Fuel Growth", a new survey of over 100 galaxies uncovering signs that black holes are demolishing thousands of stars in a quest to pack on weight.  Astronomers have found evidence for the destruction of thousands of stars in multiple galaxies, using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory.  Growing black holes within dense stellar clusters are thought to be responsible for this large-scale devastation. This process could account for "intermediate mass black holes" through the runaway growth of stellar-mass black holes.
