The James Webb Telescope has discovered the oldest active black hole in the known universe

astronomers who use James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has discovered the most distant and most active supermassive black hole ever observed. The black hole also happens to be one of the two least massive ones seen in the early universe – measuring out to the equivalent of about 9 million suns – which proves difficult to explain.

Researchers observed that the galaxy hosts this active supermassive black hole as part of the Cosmic Evolutionary Evolutionary Survey (CEERS) scientific survey. The galaxy, designated CEERS 1019, is seen as it was when the universe was 13.8 billion years old, about 570 million years.
