Radio astronomers see black hole come to life42 million light years away, 20 million times the mass of the Sun, and coming back to life. A team of radio astronomers, led by Dr Megan Argo of the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics, and JIVE astronomer Dr Ilse van Bemmel, are watching a previously dormant black hole wake up in a dramatic display as material falls on to it for the first time for perhaps millions of years.
