Less powerful black hole blows environment clean after all
An international team of astronomers led by JIVE postdoc has discovered that even a weak jet stream from a low-active black hole can be a kind of leaf blower to clean parts of a galaxy. The observed black hole removes about 75% of the cold gas in the central regions of the galaxy in a few million years. This probably stops the formation of stars. The researchers published their findings on Thursday 10 February 2022 in the journal Nature Astronomy.
Breaking the Resolution Boundaries: Observing the supermassive black hole binary candidate OJ 287 from Earth and space
An international team of researchers - lead by the Spanish Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC) and including participation from a JIVE researcher - has obtained an image of radio emission in the active galaxy OJ 287 at an angular resolution of 12 micro arcseconds, which is presently the highest resolution achieved in astronomical observations.
