Some galaxies eject super-energetic, clustered jets of plasma into space. And all of them seem to come from black holes. How is this connected? My guess: these black holes have a magnetic field and rotate. This causes them to eject electrically charged particles outward. You can only check this by looking. Our concept: use the […]
