About this image

This radio image of galaxy cluster MS 0735.6+7421 was taken by NRAO's Very Large Array (VLA) in October 2004. The radio image shows jets of high energy particles ejected from a supermassive black hole, which is buried in the middle of the large central galaxy. The jets created the enormous cavities visible in the Chandra image taken in November 2003.
