Radio Galaxies

Radio galaxies emit radio waves from their central core. The energy to produce these emissions is generated by a supermassive black hole, which sends out jets of high-energy particles many millions of light-years into intergalactic space. These particles emit radio waves, which we can use to trace the jets and determine how much energy they contain. Many of the images on these pages are Double Radio Sources Associated with Galactic Nuclei (DRAGNs), which are large-scale double radio sources produced by jets that are launched by processes in AGN. You can learn more about such sources at this web site.
