ARE SUPERMASSIVE BLACK HOLES KILLING THEIR HOST GALAXIES?

Astronomers believe that black holes with masses millions or billions of times greater than the sun's exist

Since quite some time, scientists have recognised how gas clusters collapse to become stars and this "galactic death."

Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and other all-sky observing projects have revealed that not all local galaxies are spirals.

Researchers know how gas clusters collapse to generate stars and "galactic death"

Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and other all-sky observing projects have confirmed not all galaxies are spiral

This allowed researchers to identify if supermassive black hole energy injection, supernova explosions, or gas shock heating were responsible.

Simulations found that physical processes related to supermassive black hole mass inhibit star formation.

This finding best matched SDSS's local universe observations.
