Giant crack in my ceiling

Any ideas on how this could have happened or how much it will cost to repair?

Edit: The home was built in 1973. The crack is right below a beam, and it’s only on the ceiling (it doesn’t go into the other rooms or hallway or the walls). In the picture, you are seeing the insulation hanging but not the beam. We don’t see any issue with the beam it was attached to but obviously we aren’t professionals.

We are already calling around to get a professional to come out. We just wanted to get some ideas of what things we could expect. Thanks everyone for replying with their different theories!
