New discovery sheds light on very early supermassive black holes

Similar types of objects have been found in the more local, present-day Universe, such as Arp 299 shown here. In this system, two galaxies are crashing together generating an intense starburst as well as heavy obscuration of the growing supermassive black hole in one of the two galaxies.

Faint galaxy discovered

Researchers have discovered a faint but star-forming galaxy, around 136 million light-years away which was so far undetected since it lies in front of a much brighter galaxy,
