Astronomers Observed Cool Gas Reservoirs

Astronomers who are using ESO's at a Very Large Telescopic observation have noticed reservoirs of cool gas that are around some of the earliest galaxies found in the Universe. These are the gas halos that become the perfect food for some supermassive black holes that are present at the centre of these galaxies and such galaxies are now seen like they were at the time i.e. 12.5 billion years ago. This food storage might further explain that how these cosmic monsters have grown so fast during at that period in the Universe's history that is known as the Cosmic Dawn.

Emanuele Paolo Farina who is from the Max Planck Institute that is for Astronomy in Heidelberg, Germany and who has led the research published today in The Astrophysical Journal has said that they are now being able to demonstrate, for the very first time, that these primordial galaxies do possess enough food in their relative environments for sustaining both the growth of supermassive black holes and also vigorous star formation, he further adds that this adds a fundamental piece to the puzzle which astronomers are building for picture how cosmic structures were formed more than 12 billion years ago.
Astronomers have always wondered that how supermassive black holes were enabling for growing so large so early on in the past history of the Universe.
