A European research team has found that the rotation axes of the central supermassive black holes in a sample of quasars are parallel to each other over distances of billions of light-years. An artist’s impression of the alignment is pictured

Black holes are one of the strangest objects in the universe, preventing anything from escaping their grip – even light.

Now astronomers have discovered something even more peculiar about these enigmatic objects; they are aligned with each other over distances stretching billions of light-years

The remarkable observations were made by the Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile, which found an eerie alignment between enormous interstellar objects called quasars.

Quasars are galaxies with very active supermassive black holes at their centres. They shine more brightly than all the stars in the rest of their host galaxies put together.

  1. Super massive black holes aligned over billions of light years??? The more we find out about the universe, both on the light year and quantum scales, the stranger it indeed seems. Can’t wait for the explanations for this one, just wonder how long the theories will take to start coming out. Excellent article as usual my friend.

  2. Last time I disturb you tonight (on this article anyway lol). Just downloaded the image of the alignments, the Universe sure is one beautiful place. Mother Nature sure knew what she was doing there. Thanks for the new wallpaper.

  3. There are some questions that we will probably never solve?? and if we do? it would be probably a very very long time??.
