The most distant supermassive black hole known to science has been detected by astronomers – and it is more than 13 billion light years from the Earth. Experts from the University of Arizona say the quasar – which is a form of energetic supermassive black hole – formed when the universe was just 670 million years old. Quasars occur when the powerful gravity of a supermassive black hole at a galaxy’s core draws in surrounding material that forms an orbiting disk of superheated material around the black hole – releasing tremendous amounts of energy. Equivalent to the mass of 1.6 billion Suns and more than 1,000 times brighter than our entire Milky Way Galaxy – it grew relatively quickly after the Big Bang. https://www.fresh24news.com/2021/01/12/most-distant-supermassive-black-hole-known-to-science-is-detected-by-astronomers/ #astronomy #physics
