    The largest things in the universe are black holes. In contrast to things like planets or stars they have no physical size limit, and can literally grow endlessly. Although in reality specific things need to happen to create different kinds of black holes, from really tiny ones to the largest single things in the universe. So how do black holes grow and how large is the largest of them all?

@yigithan.kilinc You are wrong. The speed of light is limited so if the age of the universe is now known as 14 billion years, it means, that you just can not see the light from 17 billion lightyears distance few years later. That is impossible. The only possible explanation to this : the video commentary is wrong. It should be maybe 17 millions of lightyears, or 1,7 billions or so...just anything lower than 14 billions of lightyears.
