Posted by in category: cosmology

The fastest-growing black hole of the last 9 billion years has been discovered by an international team led by astronomers at The Australian National University (ANU).

The black hole consumes the equivalent of one Earth every second and shines 7,000 times brighter than all the light from our own galaxy, making it visible to well-equipped backyard .

Lead researcher Dr. Christopher Onken and his co-authors describe it as a “very large, unexpected needle in the haystack.”
