Submission + - Black Hole Fires at Neighboring Galaxy (

StarCraft 2 writes: "This composite image shows the jet from a black hole at the center of a galaxy striking the edge of another galaxy, the first time such an interaction has been found. In the image, it is clearly seen how the jet from the main galaxy on the lower left is striking its companion galaxy to the upper right. The jet impacts the companion galaxy at its edge and is then disrupted and deflected, much like how a stream of water from a hose will splay out after hitting a wall at an angle.
The composite image was made by combining data from Chandra, Hubble and several other systems."
