Australian researchers have uncovered a massive black hole, 17 billion times bigger than our Sun, that devours the equivalent of one Sun each day. The study, featured in Nature Astronomy, reveals a distant quasar housing the fastest-growing black hole that has ever been documented. "It's a surprise it remained undetected until now," remarked co-author Christopher Onken from the Australian National University (ANU).
