A trio of quasars, only the second of its kind ever discovered, has been found 9 billion light years away. ->
What do you get when you combine a galaxy, its central supermassive black hole and some cool astronomical techniques? ->
Sometimes in astronomy you find something rather massive that's been hiding in plain sight.
What secrets does a quasar from the dawn of the Universe hold?
That's right, the nearby spiral galaxy Andromeda is strutting some quasar bling -- the first microquasar discovered beyond our own galaxy.
13 billion light-years away, at the very edge of our observable universe, supermassive black holes lurk inside their galactic hosts, feeding.
Distant quasars are acting very strange: they're not acting strange. Usually the massive black holes powering these active galactic cores should exhibit some time dilation, but the most distant quasars don't.
On the very edge of our observable universe live two quasars. Both contain active and growing primordial black holes, but where's all the dust?
