Is there a “rapidly growing black hole” in the early universe?
Astronomers have found evidence of a “rapidly growing black hole” in the early universe, according to NASA. This discovery has been labeled a “crucial missing link” as it could help us to understand the connection between the first supermassive black holes and young galaxies.

How can we see a black hole?
A black hole can not be seen because of the strong gravity that is pulling all of the light into the black hole’s center. However, scientists can see the effects of its strong gravity on the stars and gases around it. If a star is orbiting a certain point in space, scientists can study the star’s motion to find out if it is orbiting a black hole.
How big is the black hole at the center of the Galaxy?
The supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy is called Sagittarius A. It has a mass equal to about 4 million suns and would fit inside a very large ball that could hold a few million Earths.
What is the mass of a stellar black hole?
The mass of a stellar black hole can be up to 20 times greater than the mass of the sun and can fit inside a ball with a diameter of about 10 miles. Dozens of stellar mass black holes may exist within the Milky Way galaxy. The largest black holes are called "supermassive."

What is the earliest possible launch date for the CAPSTONE mission?
NASA and launch provider Rocket Lab had been eyeing yesterday (June 13) as the soonest possible liftoff date for CAPSTONE, which will send a 55-pound (25 kilograms) cubesat to the moon. But the CAPSTONE team has pushed the target date to June 25, NASA officials announced in a brief blog post today (June 14).
What time does NASA live coverage of the capstone launch start?
Live coverage will begin at 5 a.m. EDT on NASA Television, the agency’s website, and the NASA app. CAPSTONE’s trajectory design means that the spacecraft will arrive at its lunar orbit on Nov. 13 regardless of launch date within the current period, which offers launch opportunities every day through July 27.
When will NASA’s capstone CubeSat reach the Moon?
The next possible launch date for the microwave oven-sized CAPSTONE is Tuesday, June 28, but NASA and its partners could launch the mission anytime before July 27 and still ensure the cubesat reaches the moon on Nov. 13, the agency has said.
When will capstone launch from New Zealand?
CAPSTONE is scheduled to launch in March 2022 aboard a Rocket Lab’s Electron rocket from the company’s Launch Complex 1 in New Zealand. With a highly ambitious schedule, CAPSTONE will demonstrate key commercial capabilities.
