  Three supermassive black holes found at center of unusual, smashed galaxy Huge, spiral galaxies like our home galaxy -- the Milky Way -- look like beautiful, starry pinwheels, but not all galaxies are formed with such artistic sensibilities. Take, for example, NGC 6240: An irregular galaxy approximately 300 million light-years from Earth that looks like a smashed egg and was formed when a pair of galaxies collided with one another.Astronomers have long believed that collision resulted in NGC 6240 housing two supermassive black holes, but new research suggests they were wrong: NGC 6240 has three supermassive black holes at its galactic center.

William’s visit will renew and strengthen ties between Britain and Kuwait, and the monarchy’s personal bonds with the Gulf state’s ruling Al-Sabah family.

The duke’s tour begins in earnest on Monday and the highlight will be a desert encampment staged for William outside the capital Kuwait City.

A cultural experience will be laid on for the royal visitor from dates and coffee to camels as he meets young leaders, entrepreneurs and university students.

Kensington Palace said about the trip: “Throughout the tour, the duke’s programme will pay tribute to the historic ties Britain shares with Kuwait and Oman, and will highlight strong links and cooperation in many areas, including education, the environment, and defence.

“From the modern capitals of Kuwait City and Muscat, to the vast Kuwaiti deserts and stunning wadis in the Omani mountains, the visit will take in both countries’ unique cultures, their beautiful landscapes, and diverse communities.”
