Astronomers reveal supermassive black hole's intense magnetic field Astronomers from Chalmers University of Technology have used the giant telescope Alma to reveal an extremely powerful magnetic field very close to a supermassive black hole in a distant galaxy. The results appear in the 17 April 2015 issue of the journal Science.

Astronomers have discovered the largest known structure in the universe, a clump of active galactic cores that stretch 4 billion light-years from end to end. The structure is a light quasar group (LQG), a collection of extremely luminous Galactic Nuclei powered by supermassive central black holes.

Why Do Supermassive Black Holes Erupt?

Astronomers are dragging the inner workings of black holes out into the light. By studying a supermassive black hole called Markarian 335 (Mrk 335), which is found 324 million light-years away from Earth, astronomers hope to better grasp how black holes work and why they erupt. Using these observations, astronomers created illustrations (above) to demonstrate how a corona, a shifting feature, can generate a flare of X-rays around a black hole.

A team of astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope found an unambiguous link between the presence of supermassive black holes that power high-speed, radio-signal-emitting jets and the merger history of their host galaxies. Almost all galaxies with the jets were found to be merging with another galaxy, or to have done so recently
