IRAM: Measuring the distances of luminous galaxies in the early Universe

Using the NOEMA observatory, an international team of scientists has measured the precise distances for a large (135 sources) sample of the brightest galaxies selected from surveys done with the Herschel telescope. Robust values of the distances were derived for all sources, based on the detection of at least two emission lines for each object, [...]

A Smoking Gun for Supermassive Binaries in Active Galactic Nuclei

An international research team led by Silke Britzen from the MPIfR in Bonn/DE has investigated blazars, accreting supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. The researchers present evidence that it is in fact the precession of the jet source, either caused by the presence of a second massive black hole close to the primary [...]
