Abstract

A brief review of the recent astronomical data, indicating that the universe is abundantly populated by heavy black holes (BH), is presented. Conventional astrophysics and cosmology cannot explain such a high population of BHs. A mechanism of the paper of 1963 is described, which at least qualitatively explained the observational data. In particular, the prediction that massive primordial BHs can be cosmological dark matter "particles" is discussed.
