Shockwaves of Star Formation - Galaxy M106Galaxy M106 has mysterious “invisible” spiral arms that only become visible when you observe its X-rays. While the spiral arms propagate like shockwaves around M106, they create bursts of star formation with heat equivalent to 10 million suns. Astrophysicists believe that there is a supermassive black hole at the center of M106. It is theorized that this supermassive blackhole is jetting out high-energy particles into the galaxies.

Supermassive black hole spins super-fast - Imagine a sphere more than 2 million miles across - eight times the distance from Earth to the Moon - spinning so fast that its surface is traveling at nearly the speed of light. Such an object exists: the supermassive black hole at the center of the spiral galaxy NGC 1365.
No Escape: Dive Into a Black Hole (Infographic) by Karl Tate - When matter is compressed beyond a certain density, a black hole is created. It is called black because no light can escape from it. Some black holes are the tombstones of what were once massive stars. An enormous black hole is thought to lurk at the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
