NASA astronomers were amazed to see what a black hole could do. It is the exact opposite of what we think. Until now we knew that black holes absorb matter and we did not know when or if they would remove the matter they absorbed. NASA has made a new discovery based on a study that began in 2011. 

Specifically, US space agency astronomers have discovered that a black hole 30 million light-years away in the Milky Way has given birth to stars. This is a black hole that was seen in the galaxy Henize 2-10, by the Hubble Telescope many years ago. It is over 30 million light-years from us and would be the first black hole to give birth to stars. From now on we may change our perception of black holes, we still have a lot to learn about them. In addition, the study could help us find out where the supermassive black holes came from. 

Amy Reines is the researcher who first published in 2011 a proof of the existence of a black hole in Henize 2-10 galaxy. The same researcher started this study shortly after showing the first clear evidence of a black hole in a galaxy 30 million light-years from us. 

"Just 30 million light-years away, Henize 2-10 is close enough that the Hubble Telescope can capture images of how cosmic material floats in the region of a black hole. The surprise was that we discovered how new stars are formed, "said Zachary Schutte, a Reines graduate who was also involved in the study.
