We present deep (265 ks) Chandra X-ray observations of PSO J352.4034−15.3373, a quasar at z = 5.831 that, with a radio-to-optical flux ratio of R > 1000, is one of the radio-loudest quasars in the early universe and is the only quasar with observed extended radio jets of kiloparsec scale at z ≳ 6. Modeling the X-ray spectrum of the quasar with a power law, we find a best fit of Γ=1.99−0.28+0.29 , leading to an X-ray luminosity of L2–10=1.26−0.33+0.45×1045ergs−1 and an X-ray to UV brightness…

Observations of luminous quasars and their supermassive black holes at z ≳ 6 suggest that they formed at dense matter peaks in the early universe. However, few studies have found definitive evidence
