Black Holes in Galaxy Centers…
I work in collaboration with The Nuker Team to study the centers of galaxies in an attempt to understand the relationship of galaxy nuclei to supermassive black holes that may have once powered quasars. We think we have shown that black holes that once powered quasars are a common feature of nuclei of normal galaxies.
This photo is a quasar in an interacting galaxy imaged by Bahcall, Kirhakos, Schneider and Saxe with HST. A controversial view of the history of black hole formation in the universe is illustrated here.
