A Newfound Cluster Of Quasars Challenges Our Most Cosmic Of Expectations

Quasars are normally very rare, well-separated objects. But for some reason there are four of them, all active at once, in a single region of space.

Discovery Of Rare Quadruple Quasar System Baffles Astronomers

Call it the cosmic equivalent of winning the lottery: for the first time ever, astronomers have discovered four of the rare, super-luminous celestial objects known as quasars arrayed in close proximity to one another. Quasars are typically...Show More Summary

Four Quasars in One Nebula: Scientists Find an Incredible Astronomical First

The universe is known for serving up exotic and spectacular phenomena, but even with that in mind, quasars seem too bizarre to be real. These distant objects are powered by supermassive black holes from the very early universe, and they emit massive amounts of light. Show More Summary

"Extremely Improbable" --Supermassive Black-Hole Quartet Discovered Inside Massive Structures of Early Universe

Using the W. M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii, a group of astronomers of the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy have discovered the first quadruple quasar: four rare active black holes situated in close proximity to one another. The quartet resides...

Quartet of quasars discovred for the first time

The presence of so many in such close proximity could challenge ideas of how galaxies formed

This issue includes an epic long-spanning interview with Heather's disinterested cat Quasar, a crossword puzzle that doubles as an eye test, and a Thelma and Louise playlist for riding in cars with girls.

Ep. 187: History of Astronomy, Part 5: The 20th Century

Many of the modern ideas in astronomy happened in just the 20th century: dark matter, the Big Bang, inflation, quasars, black holes. So many discoveries in one important century.

Ep. 98: Quasars

Last week we talked about galaxies in general, and hinted at the most violent and energetic ones out there: active galaxies. Quasars have been a mystery for half a century; what kind of object could throw out more radiation than an entire galaxy? A black hole, it turns out, with the mass of hundreds of millions of suns performs this feat. Show More Summary

The Hubble Space Telescope Delivers Images of Ethereal Green Quasar 'Phantoms'

The Hubble Space Telescope has captured new images of the strange cosmic ghosts lurking at the outside edges of some distant galaxiesdubbed "green goblins." These are twisted, gnarled clouds of energized material tens of thousands of light-years long, deformed by the immense gravitational forces of the nearby galaxy. Show More Summary

Quasar backlighting gives weight to Andromeda galaxy

Astronomers find 40 billion suns' worth of gas hiding in our neighbouring galaxy's halo – and get insight into how galaxies collect material over time...

Colossal Ghostly Structures Found Shrouding Galaxies --Powered by Ancient Quasars

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has photographed a set of wispy, goblin-green objects that are the ephemeral ghosts of quasars that flickered to life and then faded. The glowing structures have looping, helical, and braided shapes. "They don't fit a single...

Hubble finds phantom objects near dead quasars

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has photographed a set of wispy, goblin-green objects that are the ephemeral ghosts of quasars that flickered to life and then faded. The eight unusual looped structures may offer insights into the puzzling behaviors of galaxies with energetic cores.

Hubble discovers ghosts of quasars past

a set of enigmatic quasar ghosts -- ethereal green objects which mark the graves of these objects that flickered to life and then faded. The eight unusual looped structures orbit their host galaxies and glow in a bright and eerie goblin-green hue. They offer new insights into the turbulent pasts of these galaxies. read more

Meet The Peugeot Quasar: A Group B Supercar For The Road

Back when Group B rally cars were running virtually unrestricted, faster than sense or safety, newscasters called them 'supercars.' What if you took that Group B tech and applied it to a traditional supercar concept? Read more...

Java IO Benchmark: Quasar vs. Async ForkJoinPool vs. managedBlock

How do Async ForkJoinPool, managedBlock and Quasar perform in an IO scenario?

Monster black hole discovered at cosmic dawn

The discovery of the brightest quasar in the early universe, powered by the most massive black hole yet known at that time presents a puzzle to researchers: How could something so massive and luminous form so early in the universe, only 900 million years after the Big Bang?

Missing Light of the Visible Universe --"Is It Coming from Some Exotic New Source?" (Weekend Feature)

"The most exciting possibility is that the missing photons are coming from some exotic new source, not galaxies or quasars at all," said Neal Katz of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. For example, the mysterious dark matter, which holds...
