Rogue black hole spotted on its own for the first time

Astronomers may have for the first time detected and measured the mass of an isolated stellar-mass black hole, a new study finds.

Previous research suggested that when giant stars more than 20 times the mass reach the end of their lives, they usually die in catastrophic explosions known as supernovas, and their dense cores are expected to collapse to become black holes.
