The source of the explosion was a distance of 8 billion light years.
The Royal Astronomical Society has announced the discovery of a record explosion in outer space. It was discovered by astronomers for three years.
The origin of the explosion was located at an altitude of about 8 billion light years from Earth, that is, the explosion itself occurred long ago. Scientists discovered the explosion due to its intensity.
According to Philip Wiseman of the University of Southampton, the search algorithm mistaken the explosion for a supernova. After studying the data manually, astronomers came to the conclusion that we are talking about another cosmic event.
AT2021lwx may have been caused by a supermassive black hole that covered a massive cloud of interstellar dust or hydrogen, according to experts. The size of AT2021lwx is roughly 100 times the size of the solar system.
astronomers aim to learn more about AT2021lwx's origin by analyzing the collected data. Maybe it will be possible to determine the temperature of the explosion and other relevant parameters of the cosmic event.
