More Images of 4C41.17 and 3C294
1
Chandra X-ray Image of 3C294
Images made by NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory have revealed a distant cosmic construction site -- the galaxy known as 3C294 -- buzzing with activity. This discovery provides insight into how supermassive black holes shape and limit the growth of extremely massive galaxies. The image on right shows the full field of the observation; the image on the left shows the zoom-in.
