Astronomers have determined that the black hole at the center of the quasar, named J0313-1806, is the “oldest one” ever discovered.
According to the news in CNN, the new discovery of astronomers was discussed at the 237th meeting of the American Astronomical Society.
In the study, the results of which were published in the journal Astrophysical Journal Letters, researchers from the University of Arizona determined that the rays of it, right in the middle of the very bright quasar, came from 13 billion light-years away. This means that the quasar existed when the universe was only 670 million years old, the researchers said.
Science men noted that there was 1.6 billion times the mass of the Sun in the center of the quasar, called J0313-1806.
Astronomers say that this is the “oldest black hole”He pointed to it.
There is a black hole at the center of all galaxies in the universe, including the Milky Way, which includes the solar system. These surrounded by super hot gases are called “quasars.” The extraordinary brilliance of the newly discovered quasar results from the extremely powerful heating of the gas surrounding the central black hole. The world of science will change a lot with this discovery. It is the oldest ever found.
