Australian scientists detect celestial body powered by fastest growing black hole

In a groundbreaking discovery, Australian astronomers have stumbled upon the most luminous object ever observed in the universe.

Dubbed a “quasar,” this celestial phenomenon is powered by an extraordinary black hole that engulfs the equivalent of a sun each day, the scientists said.

The Australian National University scientists, who made this revelation, detected the quasar using a 2.3-meter telescope. They explained that the celestial body shines with a radiance 500 trillion times brighter than our own sun.

The light emitted by the quasar took a staggering 12 billion years to traverse space and reach Earth.

The black hole at the heart of this cosmic spectacle possesses a mass roughly 17 billion times that of our sun, making it the fastest-growing black hole ever recorded.
