most distant quasar discovered

Using the Magellan telescopes in Chile, scientists have discovered the furthest black hole to date. With light travel time more than 13 billion years, this makes it a young black hole, in one of the first galaxies. The quasar is 800 million times more massive than the Sun. That's big but there are bigger black holes. Check out the article at the CBC web site.
