Scientists examine supermassive black hole ancestor from the universe ‘cosmic dawn’

Early in the history of our universe, a strange object was formed. By studying the object in archival data, scientists now find that it appears to be somewhere between a galaxy and a quasar (distant objects driven by black holes a billion times as massive as our sun).

Scientists examining the object in a new study have termed the object, called GNz7q, “the ancestor of a supermassive black hole”, as it was created only 750 million years after the Big Bang took place, triggering our universe 13.8 billion years ago since.
