NASA astronomers made a surprising discovery when the team managed to detect one of the oldest black holes with the help of the James Webb Space Telescope. The details are surprising, as the black hole can date back more than 13 billion years, to the beginning of the Universe.
The first black holes have a great chance of unlocking a puzzle about the amazing counterparts of galaxies, including the Milky Way, which is a billion times the mass of the Sun. Now, the latest observations reveal that the galaxy called GN-z11 pushed the origins of this black hole's infancy mystery and suggested that these black holes are built on a large scale or grow rapidly in their early phase.

Black holes are one of the most questionable and strange objects in the universe. They are extremely powerful and have intense gravity with light or matter fighting hard to escape their control. The threshold of a black hole is traced by its horizon, which is a zone of no return point. Therefore, if anything goes beyond this limit, it will disappear forever.

These black holes come in various sizes, with stellar black holes mainly formed from the remains of large stars, and can be up to 20 times larger than the sun. Then there are supermassive black holes like Sagittarius A, located at the center of the Milky Way. It could have masses equivalent to billions of suns, which therefore play an important role in the evolution of the universe.
