    Australian astronomers have discovered the fastest-growing black hole ever found in deep space.

    The hole devours mass equivalent to the the sun every two days.

    The black hole is more than 12 billion light-years away and is currently the size of 20 billion suns.

    "The black hole is growing so rapidly that it's shining thousands of times more brightly than an entire galaxy due to all of the gases it sucks in daily that causes lots of friction and heat," Dr Christian Wolf from the Australian National University told 7 News

    He said if the black hole were at the centre of the Milky Way galaxy it would appear 10 times brighter than a full moon.

    "It would appear as an incredibly bright pin-point star that would almost wash out all of the stars in the sky," Dr Wolf told 7 News.

    The discovery was made using a spectrograph at the Australian National University's Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics.

  2. Seems odd that they're unsure if it's the center of the Milky Way or not. Shouldn't that be obvious one way or another?

  4. They found it in deep space not the center of the Milky Way. They said:

    It's just to describe how bright it would show to us if it were in our galaxy.

  8. Think about the initial impact that made this large of a black hole happen...Must have been multiple galaxies colliding. 20 billion suns in size is unfathomable.

  9. probably not, most black holes gradually grow, so it must have either collided with many black holes. This black hole is not nearly as large as a whole galaxy, and even if it was multiple galaxy collisions it would probably only be as big as the black hole in the center of our galaxy, because ours is one that grows more because of black hole collisions, not star eating.

    off of that tangent, so moral of the story, that THICC black hole was probably the result of lots of high mass material colliding rather than a galaxy of light mass objects colliding.

  10. That was 12 billion years ago. Nowadays this black hole is perfectly safe to be around, as long as you don't cross the event horizon (where it would still take millions of years to eat you). Supermassive black holes are some of the safest objects in the universe to be around.

  11. Our information is 12 billion years old, which means this thing was happening near the beginning of the universe, before galaxies as we know them had even really taken shape. I wonder if this is something that was common to quasars at the time?

  14. Black holes should clear their own neighborhood instead of shitting up our galaxy with all their hawking radiation culture and asking for free baryons.

  16. If some micro black holes offers you a billion years worth of free power, you'd take them up on their offer too.

  20. This is beautiful.
    Something like, a new woman that I was gonna date: You're dark, and you're massive and you have a black hole and all of those elements I want to explore, just like you would explore on a new date; I wanna dive deep into them and feel around and just see what's gonna come out of that.
