Nasa’s Hubble Telescope Shows Formative Years of Quasars

By using Hubble Space Telescopes infrared vision, astronomers have uncovered the mysterious early formative years of quasars, the brightest objects in the universe.Hubble’s sharp images unveil the chaotic collisions of galaxies that fuel quasars by feeding supermassive central black holes with gas. “The Hubble observations are definitely telling us that the peak of quasar activity in the early universe is ...
