How black holes clear galaxies of star-making gas

ESA - 22 min 43 sec ago
Astronomers have found proof that the strong winds blown by a supermassive black hole are dispersing the gas reservoir of its host galaxy. The new finding relies on the observation of two related phenomena in the same galaxy: a large-scale galactic outflow, seen by ESA's Herschel space observatory, and a black-hole driven wind at the galaxy's core, detected with the Japanese/US Suzaku X-ray observatory. By showing how the black hole wind is in fact driving the gas outflow that affects the entire galaxy, the discovery demonstrates the key role played by black holes in regulating the formation of stars in their host galaxies.
