astronomer and researcher Astronomy Center of the Diego Portales University, Claudio Riccileads new research published in the latest issue of the Astrophysical Journal, which provides key details about the growth of supermassive black holes.

In the research, carried out by a team of scientists from the Center for Astrophysics and Related Technologies (CATA), to which Ricci also belongs, reveals that the dust and gas that surround these powerful galactic objects play a key role: “We focus on the relationship between black holes and the material around them that feeds them,” explains the UDP academic.

To accomplish this, the scientists used data from the largest census of black holes in the nearby or local universe, conducted under the wing of the bass projectwhich, for more than 15 years, has been investigating the active nuclei of galaxies.
