Largest explosion since the Big Bang detected

Scientists have detected the largest explosion since the Big Bang.

But… This explosion happened very slowly, and over a extraordinary long period of time. Around 200 to 400 million years ago.

The explosion has been detected in the Ophiuchus galaxy cluster, which is a very large galaxy  cluster that is around 400 million light years away.

The blast came from a super massive black hole that is at the center of the galaxy cluster.

The blast has left a very large dent in the cluster, with scientists saying that the blast was several times larger than any other detected black, and released at least five time more energy than any other blast detected.

It is very exciting to discover these types of blasts, as we will learn more about the universe by studying these amazing events. More blasts will be detected in the future for sure, as our technology to detect improves.
