The Hubble Telescope discovers quasar tsunamis that tear up galaxies in space



Quasar tsunamis, discovered by astronomers with the Hubble Space Telescope, erupt in the most vigorous runoff that has ever been seen. This pouring out of energy wrecks devastates galaxies in which these puzzling objects are located and changes the development of these star families.

Quasars are energetic galaxy nuclei that consist of supermassive black holes that are fed by huge amounts of gas, stars and planets. These bodies can release a thousand times as much energy as the entire galaxy in which the bodies are located.
