Astronomers found the oldest quasar in history

A group of scientists from the Carnagie Institute found quasar, an astronomical source of electromagnetic energy, which is the oldest to date. This non-transitory object allows to study the Universe in older cosmic times.

What are these quasars?

They are phenomena that arise when a huge black hole - which is in the core of a galaxy - begins to absorb all the matter that is around and also have a huge speed of rotation, which produces a gigantic amount of energy that is released in the form of light waves.

The more distant quasars can provide key information about pending issues in astrophysics, this discovery becomes a goldmine for studies and exploration of the Universe and its beginnings.

I hope you liked it and this was a contribution to knowledge
