Quasar Discovered Has 100 Times More Power Than Milky Way Galaxy
The quasar, SDSS J1106+1939, is at least five times more powerful than any that have been observed to date. Quasars are bright galactic centers powered by supermassive black holes. These cosmic objects outflows have never been observed as powerful as theorists have predicted, until now.

The new study looked at SDSS J1106+1939 in great detail by using the X-shooter instrument on the European Space Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) at the Paranal Observatory in Chile.

“We have discovered the most energetic quasar outflow known to date,” said team leader Nahum Arav of Virginia Tech. “The rate that energy is carried away by this huge mass of material ejected at high speed from SDSS J1106+1939 is at least equivalent to two million million times the power output of the Sun.”

He said the quasar is about 100 times higher than the total power output of the Milky Way galaxy.

“This is the first time that a quasar outflow has been measured to have the sort of very high energies that are predicted by theory,” Arav said.

ESO said many theoretical simulations suggest the impact of these outflows on the galaxies around them may resolve several enigmas, including how the mass of a galaxy is linked to its central black hole mass, and why there are so few large galaxies in the Universe.

The newly discovered outflow lies about a thousand light-years away from the supermassive black hole at the heart of the quasar.

Isn't the black hole supposed to be the thing that has such strong gravity that it sucks everything into it and not even light can escape? Yet this "outflow..." it makes no sense.

Material is ejected out of the poles of the black "hole" because matter is spinning rapidly around it. Some of the matter is moving so fast it is able to escape the gravitational pull. I think.

Or they are actually much closer and not at their proposed redshift distance:

there is so much material spinning around the black hole, a lot of it is shot out the poles. that's what makes a quasar.

none of that material has fallen into the event horizon.

if there was no galactic material to get sucked into the black hole, all there is is... a black hole.
