Scientists Are Closer To Understanding The Wild Jets Of Matter Beaming Out Of Galactic Centres

If active galactic nuclei don't make you say "holy crap", what will? A lot of galaxies contain incredibly bright regions at their centre, spewing high-energy jets into the depths of space, brighter than the light the galaxy's stars can produce. More »
