Hundreds of Black Holes Found

--An international team of astronomers, including experts from Durham University, have unmasked hundreds of black holes hiding deep inside dusty galaxies billions of light years away. The discovery by Nasa's Spitzer and Chandra space telescopes implies there are hundreds of mil-lions of additional black holes growing in our young universe, more than doubling the total amount known at that distance.
