A powerful jet of particles from a "supermassive" black hole has been seen blasting a nearby galaxy, according to findings from the US space agency.

Galaxies have been seen colliding before, but it is the first time this form of galactic violence has been witnessed by astronomers.


This could have a profound effect on any planets in the jet's path and could also trigger a burst of star formation.


The findings are to be published in the Astrophysical Journal.
