the universe's earliest and brightest black holes were created as a result of intense gas attacks.
quasars are some of the oldest, brightest relics of the early universe that astronomers can detect today
quasars exist at the centers of many large galaxies. But thanks to their exceptional luminosity
quasars have been tracked far across space-time, with roughly 200 of them identified as forming within the first billion years of our universe's history.
concentrating on one of the uncommon intersections where two streams of chilly, turbulent gas met.
In the simulation, over the period of millions of years, two substantial "clumps" of star-forming gas accumulated at the core of these streams.
A quasar must have a birth mass of between 10,000 and 100,000 solar masses.
This study might challenge decades of theories about how stars emerge in the early universe.
