Publié le par revivall

  • The farthest jet yet in X-ray light - at a distance of about 12.4 billion light years -- has been discovered.

  • Material rapidly falling onto a giant black hole in center of a galaxy produces the jet.

  • The jet is at least 230,000 light years long, or about twice the diameter of the entire Milky Way.

  • This composite image contains X-ray (blue), radio (purple), and optical data (yellow).
