Hidden at the center of this picture of what is 26,000 light years away is thought to be the genesis of a black hole forming inside a supernova. NASA scientists, using the Chandra X-ray space telescope, managed to zoom in on this colorful explosion of W49B — an oddly mesmerizing piece of universe that, at just 1,000 years old (at least seen from Earth), is theorized to be the youngest black hole ever spotted in our Milky Way galaxy.
