I have been doing some experiments with the shape of galaxies with supermassive black holes. I wanted to know if the type of a galaxy (elliptical, spiral, barred spiral, irregular, ect.) is affected by if the galaxy has a supermassive black hole. Super massive black holes have been discovered in galaxies, including ours, and others. Based on research I don't believe that irregular galaxies contain super massive black holes based on an experiment I conducted. I drilled a small hole in the…Continue
