"High-speed" galaxy

At a distance of three hundred million light years from the Earth by American astronomers was a "high-speed" galaxy was discovered, whose stars revolve around the common center of the system unusually fast. This can be explained only by one thing: in the center of the "high-speed" galaxy is something very heavy.

Calculations have shown that the center of the "high-speed" galaxy should weigh as much as the entire our Galaxy. But this huge mass is concentrated in a space ten thousand times less voluminous than our Galaxy! It is assumed that the "high-speed" galaxy is a supermassive black hole. To verify this assumption, astronomers hope with the help of an automatic Gamma-Observatory, recently put into orbit around the Earth.
