You know how sometimes the swimming pool is too crowded and you desire privacy. Problem solved. That picture up there, that my friend is Quasar, a swimming pool in outer space. But very different from the one you would find at the Marriots. Its bigger. About one hundred thousand times bigger than the sun, it holds about 140 trillion times more water than our planet. So relax, you will get your own lane. You can do the back stroke, the butterfly or float at your pace. But getting to the Quasar might take a while. Light from the Quasar has travelled a distance of 12 billion miles to reach us on earth. So when scientists observe the Quasar today, they are seeing how it looked 1.6 billion years ago. When it was young. Just like those profile pictures on face book.
