A timeless image from 10 billion years ago has just caught the ‘magic eye’ of the Hubble Space Telescope, showing how an incredibly large and powerful cosmic monster was born.
Theo Science live, The two objects recorded by NASA’s Hubble are two very large quasars. Quasar is a noun bright star-like object seen from Earth, but it is actually a person in disguise.
They are often monstrous black holes, but they are not silent and invisible like most black holes but violently devour matter. The gas and dust particles are accelerated by the power of the black hole to near the speed of light and glow intensely.

The light from all swallowed things combined makes the black hole brighter than the light from the entire galaxy containing the Milky Way Earth combined, so it looks like a bright star even though it’s far away from us.
The double quasar captured by NASA has a record distance: 10 billion light years.
Scientists hypothesize that these extremely bright quasars are signs of the beginning of the universe, but it’s the “twin” nature of the objects that makes them particularly interesting.
According to astronomer Yu-Ching Chen of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (USA), lead author of the study which has just been published in Nature about two strange quasars, they are an extremely rare pair in the prime universe.
They tried to consider the possibility that these were just optical illusions, because the Hubble lens accidentally looked around a region of space-time that was curved due to the gravity of a giant object. But this is not the case, they are actually twins – another observation of WM Keck Observatory in Hawaii confirmed.

Not only are they rare double quasars, but they are also preparing to merge with each other. The merger will definitely create a bright black hole collision, releasing extremely powerful energy and resulting in the birth of an extremely large monster black hole.
More precisely, the images provided by Hubble or MW Keck are not images of the present, but of A timeless gift from 10 billion years ago. An object located 10 billion light years away means that the light coming from it must travel 10 billion years through space and time to reach an earthly device.
In other words, this particular discovery gave us a direct picture of a rare monster from the dawn of the universe. Perhaps by now, they have long since merged and it is not certain whether the monsters born from this fusion still exist.
