Radio Observations of Compact Symmetric Objects Shed New Light on Black Hole Phenomenon
Radio Observations of Compact Symmetric Objects Shed New Light on Black Hole Phenomenon
March 26, 2024 at 10:00 am | News Release

Compact Symmetric Objects (CSOs) have long puzzled astronomers with their unique characteristics. These active galaxies harbor supermassive black holes that emit powerful jets traveling at near-light speeds in opposite directions. However, unlike their counterparts in other galaxies, these jets remain compact, not extending out to great distances as expected. For decades, scientists presumed that CSOs were youthful entities, with their jets destined to expand over time. New findings, published in three papers in The Astrophysical Journal, challenge this notion.
