CAPE CANAVERAL, FLA.—Astronomers have discovered a super-size black hole harkening back to almost the dawn of creation. Quasars are incredibly bright objects deep in the cosmos, powered by black holes devouring everything around them. The black hole in this newest, most distant quasar is 800 million times the mass of our sun. Much bigger black holes are out there, but none so far away — at least among those found so far. Around the time of this newest quasar, the universe was emerging from a so-called Dark Ages.
