Astronomers find unexpected accelerating quasar winds around distant black hole

Quote

A team of astronomers, including Penn State researchers, from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) has used eight years of monitoring observations to discover unexpected changes in the winds surrounding a distant black hole. 

Their work — presented at the American Astronomical Society (AAS) meeting in Madison, Wisconsin, and published today (June 11) in the Astrophysical Journal — reveals that the high-speed motions of gas surrounding the supermassive black hole at the center of the quasar known as SBS 1408+544 have been accelerating. The results were featured during a press conference that was livestreamed and is available to view at the AAS Press Office YouTube page.
