Scientists find black holes could reach "stupendously large" sizes

A recent study suggests the possible existence of ‘stupendously large black holes’ or SLABS, even larger than the supermassive black holes already observed in the centres of galaxies.

A recent press coverage by Queen Mary University of London has focused on my work on black holes https://arxiv.org/abs/2008.08077.

In the press coverage available here my collaborator Bernard Carr of Queen Mary discusses in depth the outcome of our study and future projects. The paper has been recently published on Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society 501 (2) 2029–2043 (2021).
