Survey Confirms Link Between Mergers and Supermassive Black Holes

NGC 6240 lies 400 million light-years away in the constellation of Ophiuchus (The Serpent Holder). This galaxy has an elongated shape with branching wisps, loops and tails. This mess of gas, dust and stars bears more than a passing resemblance to a butterfly and, though perhaps less conventionally beautiful, a lobster. This bizarrely-shaped galaxy did not begin its life looking like this; its distorted appearance is a result of a galactic merger

I diritti non sono slegati tra loro, la galassia dei diritti è interconnessa, se si spezzano uno o più fili, il sistema intero entra in crisi, gli equilibri si rompono, attaccarli è più semplice, si iniziano a verificare falle sempre più difficili da ricomporre.
