Scientists have discovered an example of a black hole that should be extremely common, but quite hard to find.

The problem of detecting what astronomers call dormant black holes occurs because these objects are not actively feeding on matter such as gas, dust, or stellar material lifted from a companion star. Without power, these black holes don’t emit the X-rays that scientists use to detect typical black holes. The new discovery could have implications for understanding how stars crumble at the end of their lives, according to the researchers.
