Scientists investigate supermassive black hole ancestor from universe’s ‘cosmic dawn’

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

Researchers investigating the object in a new study have termed the object, dubbed GNz7q, the “ancestor of a supermassive black hole,” as it was created just 750 million years after the Big Bang took place, sparking our universe 13.8 billion years ago.
