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
Scientists have discovered the brightest quasar in the early universe, powered by the most massive black hole yet known at that time. View News Article (2015-02-26)


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)


The Intergalactic Medium Unveiled: Caltech's Cosmic Web Imager Directly Observes 'Dim Matter'
Caltech astronomers have taken unprecedented images of the intergalactic medium (IGM)-the diffuse gas that connects galaxies throughout the universe-with the Cosmic Web Imager, an instrument designed and built at Caltech. View News Article (2014-04-30)


A cross-section of the universe
An image of a galaxy cluster taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope gives a remarkable cross-section of the Universe, showing objects at different distances and stages in cosmic history.  View News Article (2014-04-18)


Researchers say distant quasars could close a loophole in quantum mechanics
In a paper published this week in the journal Physical Review Letters, MIT researchers propose an experiment that may close the last major loophole of Bell's inequality - a 50-year-old theorem that, if violated by experiments, would mean that our universe is based not on the textbook laws of classical physics, but on the less-tangible probabilities of quantum mechanics.  View News Article (2014-02-21)
