A Hungry Quasar Caught in the Act
The VLT Secures Spectacular Image of Distant Gravitational Interaction A new image of a distant quasar (the luminous core of an "active" galaxy) shows that it is engaged in a gravitational battle with its neighbouring galaxies. It also provides information on how supermassive black holes present in the center of quasars are fed. Using the FORS2 multi-mode instrument at the ESO 8.2-m VLT KUEYEN...

Extremely rare triple quasar found
For only the second time in history, a team of scientists--including Carnegie's Michele Fumagalli--have discovered an extremely rare triple quasar system. Their work is published by Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. View News Article (2013-03-12)


Astronomers using NASA's Hubble discover quasars acting as gravitational lenses
Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have found several examples of galaxies containing quasars, which act as gravitational lenses, amplifying and distorting images of galaxies aligned behind them. View News Article (2012-03-16)


Astronomers discover an unusual cosmic lens
Astronomers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland have discovered the first known case of a distant galaxy being magnified by a quasar acting as a gravitational lens.  View News Article (2010-07-16)


Earliest watery black hole discovered
Water really is everywhere. A team of astronomers have found the largest and farthest reservoir of water ever detected in the universe-discovered in the central regions of a distant quasar. View News Article (2011-07-25)


Virginia Tech scientists discover record-breaking black hole energy blast
Virginia Tech physics researchers have discovered a quasar with the most energetic outflow ever, a finding that may answer questions about how the mass of a galaxy is linked to its central black hole mass and why there are so few large galaxies in the universe. View News Article (2012-11-29)


Astronomers discover universe's most distant quasar
A scientist at The University of Nottingham is part of a team of astronomers which has discovered the most distant quasar to date - a development that could help further our understanding of a universe still in its infancy following the Big Bang.  View News Article (2011-06-30)


NASA's Chandra Finds Evidence for Quasar Ignition
New data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory may provide clues to how quasars "turn on." View News Article (2006-03-24)


Shedding New Light on the Brightest Objects in the Universe
Quasars are among the brightest, oldest, most distant, and most powerful objects in the universe. Powered by massive black holes at the center of most known galaxies, quasars can emit enormous amounts of energy, up to a thousand times the total output of the hundreds of billions of stars in our entire Milky Way. View News Article (2013-07-25)


Black hole in search of a home
The detection of a super massive black hole without a massive host galaxy is the surprising result from a large Hubble and VLT study of quasars. View News Article (2005-09-15)
