Massive Black Hole Discovered
Astronomers are always looking at the universe and discovering new planets, stars, and other amazing things that blow our minds.
Now scientists have recently found an incredibly bright and mysterious light that is nearly as old as the universe itself! But what is it that they found? And why is the light from this massive object so bright?
In 2019, astronomers discovered a 13-billion-year-old light coming from a distant quasar.
Quasars are massive and extremely remote celestial objects that emit incredibly large amounts of energy, and typically look like a star when viewed through a telescope.
But it is what lies at the heart of the quasar’s light that is the most impressive.
It is said that quasars contain massive black holes and may represent a stage in the evolution of galaxies.
