Researchers at UAEU College of Science led discovery of how first supermassive black holes formed in Universe

AL AIN, The Physics Department in the College of Science at the United Arab Emirates University performed a study on the formation of the first supermassive black holes in the Universe, entitled “Turbulent cold flows gave birth to the first quasars” that has been published in Nature scientific magazine. Dr. Muhammad Abdul Latif from the Department of Physics led a distinguished and diverse team of astrophysicists from the UAE, United Kingdom, and Canada in resolving this two-decade-old mystery of how the first super-bright, hyperactive quasars reached this massive size inside supermassive black holes within a short period of the early universe. “This discovery is particularly exciting because astrophysicists have been grappling for years on how the first supermassive black holes were conceived,” he said. The discovery uncovered a cosmic enigma that has been puzzling scientists for the past twenty years – how come the first quasars which are extremely luminous
