Strange ‘unknown structure,’ a faint radio glow thousands of light-years wide, found around closest quasar

A new technique for studying some of the brightest objects in the universe has thrown a curveball into scientists’ understanding of the link between active monster black holes and the suppression of star formation.

Quasars are the ultraluminous cores of galaxies that contain extremely active supermassive black holes. A quasar’s intense radiation originates from massive amounts of hot gas forming an accretion disk around the black hole’s maw.
