Black holes are approached through consideration of stellar evolution, white dwarfs, supernovae, neutron stars, pulsars, the event horizon, Cygnus X-1, white holes, and worm holes. Attention is also given to radio waves from high speed electrons, the radiation emitted by quasars, active galaxies, galactic energy sources, and interpretations of.

Such black holes are found in the centers of most large galaxies, but even then, not every galaxy hosts a quasar. Specifically, a quasar is a supermassive black hole that is actively feeding on.
