  Missing black holes give clues as to how galaxies evolve

European astronomers, working with NASA’s Spitzer and Chandra space telescopes, have found hundreds of massive, growing black holes hiding deep inside dusty galaxies billions of light years away. They represent a large fraction of a missing population of black holes that have been sought after by scientists for three decades. Their discovery leads astronomers to conclude that hundreds of millions of additional growing black holes exist in our young universe, more than doubling the total amount known at that distance. These new observations were carried out as part of the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS), the most sensitive survey to date of the distant universe at multiple wave lengths.

Notes:
To restrict search results to articles in the Information Centre, i.e. this site, use this search box rather than the one at the top of the page.

After searching, you can expand the results to include the whole Research and Innovation web site, or another section of it, or all Europa, afterwards without searching again.

Please note that new content may take a few days to be indexed by the search engine and therefore to appear in the results.
