The Universe’s very first black holes, thought to have formed from the collapse of the first stars, must have grown very fast to reach masses of a billion suns within the first 0.9 billion years of the Universe’s life.

But astronomers have struggled to explain how sufficiently large amounts of ‘black hole fuel’ could have been available to enable these objects to grow to such enormous sizes in such a short time.

The newfound web-like structure around SDSS J1030+0524 offers a likely explanation: the web and the galaxies within it contain enough gas to provide the fuel that the central black hole needs to quickly become a supermassive giant.

This artist’s impression shows a supermassive black hole in the center of SDSS J1030+0524 and six galaxies — four Lyman-break galaxies and two Lyman-alpha emitting galaxies — trapped in its gas web. The large web-like structure extends over 300 times the size of the Milky Way.
