Galactic mergers responsible for supermassive black holes, relativistic jets

2 posts in this topic

BALTIMORE, May 28 (UPI) -- Strong correlations are always a relief for scientists, especially among the mysteries of deep space. Researchers conducting a survey of galaxies hosting radio-emitting jets were recently graced with just that type of correlation -- a strong link between black hole-induced relativistic jets and merging galaxies.

Almost all of the galaxies studied were currently merging or had recently merged with another galaxy, bolstering the theory that the consolidation of two supermassive black holes is responsible for radio jets. The research was made possible by data collected by the Hubble Space Telescope.
