Astronomers discover ancient effects from a super-massive black hole’s jet rays

Astronomers have gathered their first insight into what the jet rays blast off supermassive black holes may have done to ambient gas in the young universe. Scientists are curious about this interaction around a black hole because they believe the phenomenon can slow star formation in the region. And while astronomers have studied such interactions in nearby regions of the …
