Jets from Giant Black Holes

“ALMA has revealed a surprising spiral structure in the molecular gas close to the centre of NGC 1433 [a quiet black hole]. This explains how the material is flowing in to fuel the black hole. With the sharp new observations from ALMA, we have discovered a jet of material flowing away from the black hole, extending for only 150 light-years,” stated Françoise Combes from Observatoire de Paris, France, in a press release.
