Black Hole Seeds
I knew there was something I was forgetting to order for my garden.

Researchers using Hubble, Chandra and Spitzer think they might have found evidence for supermassive black holes forming directly from the collapse of gas clouds with none of that fiddely star-forming and explosion stuff. Abstract and link to the paper here. Pretty cool since supermassive black hole formation has been giving cosmologists headaches since they were discovered lurking at the heart of most galaxies.

Flesh and blood of a dead star, slain in the apocalypse of supernova, resurrected by four billion years of continuous autocatalytic reaction and crowned with the emergent property of sentience in the dream that the universe might one day understand itself.
