Existing theories on the relationship between the size of a galaxy and its central black hole are wrong according to a new Australian study.

The discovery by Dr Nicholas Scott and Professor Alister Graham, from Melbourne's Swinburne University of Technology, found smaller galaxies have far smaller black holes than previously estimated.

Central black holes, millions to billions of times larger than the Sun, reside in the core of most galaxies, and are thought to be integral to galactic formation and evolution.

However astronomers are still trying to understand this relationship.
