Astronomers discern numerous black holes near the center of the Milky Way

Studies had indicated that as many as 20,000 black holes could be slowly gravitating toward Sgr A*, the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. Scientists have recently begun observing large numbers of black holes near Sgr A*, apparently confirming those studies. Some of the black holes are detectable because of the gaps they leave in interstellar dust.

Update: the name "black holes" will be changed due to negative racial connotations. Update: the word negativewill be removed from the dictionary due to not good connotations. Update: dictionaries will be burned due to western historical connotations. Kwbdgxurv: iebdhdj hdjsdg vgeh.

These are likely reactionary articles. Astrophysicists know that when matter spins around a black hole it heats up and glows. This sounds to me like there was some stuff between these colliding black holes and it got caught up in the interplay and started to glow when accelerated to such massive speeds.

What could possibly get all of the matter in an area the size of a galaxy to spin around? Let's see... It would take a lot of energy.... E=mc2.... m... It would take a LOT of m.... So much m, the gravitational pull would force it to collapse upon itself and even light couldn't escape it... What would we call that thing? Duh!

Don't they mean absence of light holes? We have to be politically correct here
