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.
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.
