Black Hole's Hiccup May Aid in Creating New Stars

Jan 6, 2016

Although black holes are thought to be world destroyers, new research is revealing that some may help in creating new stars. At the 227th Meeting of the American Astronomical Society a black hole has been observed producing outbursts of material, which are compressing gas, and astronomers believe it will induce new star formation. 

 The galaxy is called M51b.

 The picture below shows M51b at the top left of the picture.
