  1. "Deep inside Perseus A - A telescope larger than the Earth makes a sharp image of the formation of black hole jets in the core of a radio galaxy"

    An international team of researchers, including Dr. Kirill Sokolovsky of IAASARS/NOA, has imaged newly forming jets of plasma from a massive black hole with unprecedented accuracy. Radio images made with a combination of telescopes in space and on the ground resolve the jet structure merely a couple of hundred black hole radii or 0.033 light years from its launching site. More information is available here.
