"Extreme Black Hole Jets Signal Galaxy Mergers" --Hubble/ALMA Observatories

Best view yet of merging galaxies in distant universe

"The Death Zone" --Massive Star Creation Fading at Galaxy Centers: 'Big Bang Model Fails to Predict This' 11/28/17 Black Holes NGC1097

Supermassive black holes can be found at the centers of every large galaxy. Now, ALMA has managed to "weigh" one of these supermassive black holes.

NASA - Active Black Hole Squashes Star Formation / New data from the Herschel Space Observatory shows that galaxies with the most powerful, active, supermassive black holes at their cores produce fewer stars than galaxies with less.

M31, also known as the Andromeda galaxy, is one of the closest galaxies to our own at “only” 2.5 million light-years away.

Andromeda is our nearest neighboring galaxy at million light years away. One single light year is roughly 6 trillion miles. Feeling small yet?

Jets generated by supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies can transport huge amounts of energy across great distances. 3C353 is a wide, double-lobed source where the galaxy is the tiny point in the center and giant plumes of radiation can be seen in X-rays from Chandra (purple) and radio data from the Very Large Array (orange).

This deep image of M81 reveals details in the bright yellow core, but at the same time follows fainter features along the galaxy's gorgeous blue spiral arms and sweeping dust lanes. It also follows the expansive, arcing feature, known as Arp's loop, that seems to rise from the galaxy's disk at the right. Studied in the 1960s, Arp's loop has been thought to be a tidal tail, material pulled out of M81 by gravitational interaction with its large neighboring galaxy M82.

& Arp's Loop - One of the brightest galaxies in planet Earth's sky and similar in size to the Milky Way, big, beautiful spiral lies million light-years away in the northern constellation Ursa Major.
