Biggest, brightest, oldest: this quasar’s got it all. Here is an awesome definition of a quasar:
Quasars are very bright and distant galaxies that are believed to be powered by supermassive black holes at their centres.
And this discovery says interesting things about the early universe, because according to theory, it was extremely unlikely for a black hole to have got so big (2 billion times the mass of the sun, since you’re asking) so soon after the Big Bang. Nice.
