Posted on 02/01/2019 10:49:18 AM PST by Simon Green
The light released from around the first massive black holes in the universe is so intense that it is able to reach telescopes across the entire expanse of the universe. Incredibly, the light from the most distant black holes (or quasars) has been traveling to us for more than 13 billion light years. However, we do not know how these monster black holes formed.
New research led by researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology, Dublin City University, Michigan State University, the University of California at San Diego, the San Diego Supercomputer Center and IBM provides a new and extremely promising avenue for solving this cosmic riddle. The team showed that when galaxies assemble extremely rapidly and sometimes violently that can lead to the formation of very massive black holes. In these rare galaxies, normal star formation is disrupted and black hole formation takes over.
The new study finds that massive black holes form in dense starless regions that are growing rapidly, turning upside down the long-accepted belief that massive black hole formation was limited to regions bombarded by the powerful radiation of nearby galaxies. Conclusions of the simulation-based study, reported January 23 in the journal Nature and supported by funding from the National Science Foundation, the European Union and NASA, also finds that massive black holes are much more common in the universe than previously thought.
The key criteria for determining where massive black holes formed during the universes infancy relates to the rapid growth of pre-galactic gas clouds that are the forerunners of all present-day galaxies, meaning that most supermassive black holes have a common origin forming in this newly discovered scenario, said John Wise, an associate professor in the Center for Relativistic Astrophysics in Georgia Techs School of Physics and the papers corresponding author.

Great, Al Sharptons baby pictures.
How could the oldest black holes have grown so big so early in the universe?"
Be thankful for this: you’re not within a hundred light years of 3C273, or anything like it.
It’s not just the Earth that’s friendly to carbon-based life. It’s the entire region of the Milky Way in which Earth is located.
Hawaiian birth certificates?
Gee I didn’t know that Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee and Michelle Obama were that old.
I realize these unbelievers who argue against Special Creation 6,000 years ago, in favor of “billions and billions” as they concoct their story, will not be in Heaven. But I wish there could be a scene where Christ the Creator tells how He did it, and how they are totally WRONG.
Michelle, aka Big Mike, is not a female. So he does not fit in that particular grouping. JMHO.
Thanks Simon Green.
Accepting the overwhelming evidence of the actual age of the universe gets you sent to Hell? Um.....ok.....
(backs away slowly)
OK> re “Michelle, aka Big Mike, is not a female. So he does not fit in that particular grouping” (i.e. Black Holes).
OK, then she/he can be classified as an “Assteroid”, smaller that a Black Hole but still in the universe.
Keep in mind that any scientist worth their salt will tell you that most of what we “know”(about black holes or anything else) is wrong. Just sayin.
Everything I've read about black holes and string theory on this website makes absolutely no sense to me.........And I'm a whiz at Algebra.....
We don’t know. They are all just educated guesses. The problem is there are always unseen variables. some variables that may not even exist anymore and will never be understood because they don’t exist anymore. How do you measure and factor into something that is no more? We will always just be guessing and never truly know for sure. It’s fun to hypothesize and think so though.
I know what you’re saying but my point was that all those articles are so far over my head that I can’t even begin to grasp the ideas let alone the explanations.........I wish I was smart enough to but I’m not.
Even James Ussher 1581-1656, the famous and respected Archbishop of Ireland in the seventeenth century, is today greatly ridiculed by even Christians for declaring that the world was created in 4004 BC.
Nowhere is this found in the biblical text. It is the opinion and HYPOTHESIZE of just one man during the 15th century.
