Having recently seen back-to-back Nova specials on PBS regarding both supermassive black holes and string theory, I was curious as to whether there might be a connection betweeen the two, e.g. that some of the mathematics that we don't yet understand about string theory might have something to do with our (comparitively) recent understanding of the relationship between supermassive black holes at the center of their galaxies having a direct corellation to stars at their peremiter, specifically that said stars have a much faster interval (suggesting a "birth relationship") than other "nonconnected" stars in the same galaxy. This question pertains to areas of science of both astronomy and physics. Thank you!
