This spacial anomaly was first discovered when Asteroid Base: Alpha was set on a collision course. Until the sensors were recalibrated, it could only be viewed with the naked eye. Due to its potential stability, it is widely believed amoungst the AB: Alpha crew that it was artificially created, most likely by the Cult of Romulus for reasons unknown.
The Black Hole ws used to the station's advantage when it had been raided. A collision course was used as a intimidating move to drive the hostiles away from the station. This black hole is quite unique in the perfect balance it has in regards to the Asteroid Field.
