When Galaxies Collide: How The First Super-Massive Black Holes Were Born - Two black holes merge to become a supermassive black hole. It is thought that the first supermassive black hole was created 13 billion years ago, 1 billion years after the Big Bang. Image credit: Ohio State University-- Images
Black hole...located in the direction of the constellation of Virgo, is so far away that the light from it has taken 11 billion years to reach Earth, so we see it as it appeared in the early Universe. The monster black hole has more than 10 billion times the mass of the Sun and 10,000 times the mass of the super-massive black hole in our own Milky Way, making it one of the most massive ever seen...there may be as many as 400 such giant black holes in the part of the universe... - See more…
In August of 2007, astronomers located a gigantic hole in the universe. This empty space, stretching nearly a billion light-years across, is devoid of any matter such as galaxies, stars, and gas, and neither does it contain the strange and mysterious dark matter, which can be detected but not seen. The large void in the Constellation Eridanus appears to be improbable given current cosmological models. A radical and controversial theory proposes that it is a "universe-in-mass black hole"
Astronomers have discovered the largest known structure in the universe, a clump of active galactic cores that stretch 4 billion light-years from end to end. The structure is a light quasar group (LQG), a collection of extremely luminous Galactic Nulcei powered by supermassive central black holes!
simplified laws of science. What's interesting about this is that physicists are now theorizing that information that is taken in by a black hole is not lost as once thought. Now they are theorizing that information is conserved, but in what form or way, they are still unsure of.
Orion Nebula in Oxygen, Hydrogen, and Sulfur Image Credit Copyright: César Blanco González The Orion Nebula spans about 40 light years is about 1500 light years away in the same spiral arm of our Galaxy as the Sun. The Great Nebula in Orion can be found with the unaided eye just below and to the left of the easily identifiable belt of three stars in the popular constellation Orion.The whole Orion Nebula cloud complex, will slowly disperse over the next 100,000 years.
