Pulsing light may indicate supermassive black hole merger
As two galaxies enter the final stages of merging, scientists have theorized that the galaxies' supermassive black holes will form a "binary," or two black holes in such close orbit they are gravitationally bound to one another.  View News Article (2015-04-20)


Hubble finds ghosts of quasars past
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has imaged a set of enigmatic quasar ghosts -- ethereal green objects which mark the graves of these objects that flickered to life and then faded. View News Article (2015-04-06)


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. View News Article (2015-04-06)


Found: Ancient, super-bright quasar with massive black hole
Quasars--supermassive black holes found at the center of distant massive galaxies--are the most-luminous beacons in the sky.  View News Article (2015-02-26)


Astronomers find impossibly large black hole
An international team of astronomers have found a huge and ancient black hole which was powering the brightest object early in the universe. View News Article (2015-02-26)


Monster black hole discovered at cosmic dawn

Black hole on a diet creates a 'changing look' quasar
Yale University astronomers have identified the first "changing look" quasar, a gleaming object in deep space that appears to have its own dimmer switch.  View News Article (2015-01-22)


Galactic 'hailstorm' in the early universe
Two teams of astronomers led by researchers at the University of Cambridge have looked back nearly 13 billion years, when the Universe was less than 10 percent its present age, to determine how quasars - extremely luminous objects powered by supermassive black holes with the mass of a billion suns - regulate the formation of stars and the build-up of the most massive galaxies.  View News Article (2015-01-16)


Spooky alignment of quasars across billions of light-years
Quasars are galaxies with very active supermassive black holes at their centres. These black holes are surrounded by spinning discs of extremely hot material that is often spewed out in long jets along their axes of rotation. View News Article (2014-11-19)


Mysterious quasar sequence explained
Quasars are supermassive black holes that live at the center of distant massive galaxies.  View News Article (2014-09-11)
