Scientists find most distant quasar shooting powerful radio jets


"Science begets knowledge, opinion ignorance.
The distant, jet-shooting quasar is powered by a supermassive black hole that's about 300 million times more massive than our sun and is growing quickly, pulling in and swallowing surrounding matter with its gravity.

Interesting use of the word 'is'! Considering that it "is so far away that it takes about 13 billion years for the light from this quasar to reach Earth, where we observe the object as it was when the universe was just 780 million years old. "
