this gargantuan creature is (so far) the oldest black hole in the universe.
The newfound black hole and galaxy are measured as lying 12.8 billion light years from Earth. Since a light-year is the distance light travels in a year, that would mean that from Earth we see the galaxy as it was that many billion years ago.ask yourself, what happens inside it? where does all the stuff the black hole swallows go? we're still grappling with those questions.
