- Scientists are identifying the reasons why some black holes produce powerful beams, or jets, and others do not. - A new study of over 700 quasars (rapidly growing supermassive black holes) has revealed a possible answer. - Regions of diffuse hot gas threaded with powerful magnetic fields may dictate whether or not a supermassive black hole generates a jet. - This study combined data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, ESA's XMM-Newton, NSF's Very Large Array, and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. https://chandra.cfa.harvard.edu/photo/2020/bhjets/ .............................................................................. #space #science #nature #education #news
