A strange radio structure discovered around the brightest quasar in the universe

Astronomers have discovered two large, mysterious objects exploding from the brightest black hole in the known universe.

Discovered in space exploration since 1959 radio wave sources, the supermassive Black hole 3C 273 is a quasar – short for “quasi-star object” because the light emitted by these hippos is bright enough to be confused with starlight. While the black holes themselves do not emit light, the largest ones are surrounded by huge vortices of gas called accretion disks; as the gas falls into the black hole at a speed close to light, friction heats the disk and causes it to ignite with radiation – usually detected as radio waves.
