    Astronomers identify record-breaking quasar | ESOcast Light

    Astronomers have characterised the most luminous quasar observed to date, which is powered by the fastest-growing black hole. This black hole is growing in mass by the equivalent of one Sun per day. The matter being pulled in toward this black hole forms a disc that measures seven light-years in diameter — about 15 000 times the distance from the Sun to the orbit of Neptune.

Love It But Want More

I love this show but I wish it was a little more in depth, longer, and frequent. There used to be a Hubble podcast where it was just a presentation of the latest image with a scientist describing all the details. It wasn't made to be fun or entertaining, just science. I love that. Make this EsoCast more like that.
