Supermassive black hole accretion disk seen ‘on the edge’ for 1st time

Posted by in categories: cosmology, evolution

Astronomers have observed the outer edge of a disk of matter surrounding a feeding supermassive black hole for the first time.

These observations could help scientists better measure the structures that surround these cosmic monsters, understand how black holes feed on those structures and put together how this feeding influences the evolution of galaxies that house such phenomena.
