Galactic crashes fuel quasars

Using the Hubble Space Telescope's infrared vision, astronomers have unveiled some of the previously hidden origins of quasars, the brightest objects in the universe. A new study finds that quasars are born when galaxies crash into each other and fuel supermassive, central black holes.

June Pieces Of My Mind #1

Gotta love German. Try saying it out loud: “Die Beobachtung ferner Quasare, das holografische Prinzip und der Quantenschaum der Raumzeit”. Resolutely put away my phone in order to read a book instead. Then remembered that the book is in the phone. Ever wonder what the scarf-wearing Somali girls are going to do with their lives?…

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

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
