New Surveys Peer Through Dust to Reveal Giant Supermassive Black Holes
ScienceDaily (Oct. 8, 2012) — Scientists at the University of Cambridge have used cutting-edge infrared surveys of the sky to discover a new population of enormous, rapidly growing supermassive black holes in the early Universe. The black holes were previously undetected because they sit cocooned within thick layers of dust. The new study has shown however that they are emitting vast amounts of radiation through violent interactions with their host galaxies.
