The supermassive black hole at the centre of our galaxy may have flared up some 2 million years ago, around the time our ancestors learned to walk upright

Homo erectus emerged around 1.9 million years ago, so would have had a ringside view if the black hole erupted then. Any earlier and Homo habilis, the first of our large-brained ancestors, would have watched wide-eyed. It might even have been Australopithecus sediba, a close relative whose fossils were recently discovered in South Africa.


Early humans saw black hole light in the night sky

Imagine being an "early human" and walking around all upright and sh**, then you look up and see an expansion of light to what is to be described as "a fuzzball" coming from the supermassive black hole in the center of our galaxy exploding into existence.

Could the blackhole have influence of our evolution?

some reason i can't get the video up..

with the flash came also the radiation...so they have seen "the light"

I am not sure about evolution. But what about this. With all that jumping and pointing at the sky. This may have led to the first upright stand...

lol I hadn't read druid1 posts before posting mine. No need to "double post" then...

I agree with the poster below me though... I'd like to see too how it looked.

I would be interested in seeing a representation of what that would look like from Earth.

Cool...though the reason we stood upright was so we could see our enemies above the tall grasses once we decided to come down from the trees.

Cool theory, bro.


Problem is, we just don't know anything. And when we think we do, we are eventually proven wrong.

How does seeing a black hole affect your evolution?

I was referring to what you said. I coulda rattled off a list of one liners responding to that statement....but showed great restraint.

From a guy who thinks the height of comedy is a fart joke....thats saying a lot.

You would have to be present for a fart joke to reach its intended heights.

Cool video... S/F..


As a previous poster mentioned it would be really cool to see it represented as being viewed from Earth. I always wonder if our very very early ancestors stared at the skies like some of us do....
