The explosion came from a supermassive black hole in the center of a galaxy several million light-years away and released five times more energy than previous record holders.

Astronomers have discovered the largest explosion in the universe since the Big Bang.

The explosion came from a supermassive black hole in the center of a galaxy several million light-years away.

Scientists say it released five times more energy than previous record holder.

Melanie Johnston-Hollitt, a professor at Curtin University Node's International Center for Radio Astronomy Research, said the event was extraordinarily powerful.

"This is the most powerful explosion we have seen since the Big Bang," she told the PA news agency.

She added that the age of the explosion is between 240 and 400 million years, as radio properties suggest it must have happened at least 240 million years ago and optical data indicates the upper limit to the age is 400 million years.
