EARLY universe FILLED WITH BLACK HOLES

Using the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, a group of Astronomers believe they've gathered proof that the early universe was teeming with black holes of all sizes. The new observations are the deepest X-ray images every recorded, and required a total exposure time of 11 days. And from their research Astronomers estimate that there were at least 200 million supermassive black holes and many more smaller ones in the early Universe.
