Astronomers Have Spotted Mysterious Alignment Of very biggest Black Holes

Astronomers have spotted a strange phenomenon in a distant patch of the Universe: the jets emitting from the center of 64 supermassive black holes in galaxies are every lined up. After three years of radio Photo taken by the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope situated in India and analyzed by a group of astronomers in South Africa, astronomers picked up the weak signatures of jets pointing in the same path like compass needles, and may provide hints about the structure of the ancient Universe when the black holes were being formed.

The aligned jets emitted by supermassive black holes were exposed in the European Large-Area ISO Survey-North 1 (ELAIS-N1) area of the sky and the investigate paper is published in the Monthly notice of the Royal Academy of Sciences. When Russ Taylor from the University of the Western Cape and his coworker from US, spotted these aligned jets, they calculated the odds of accidental arrangement to be less than 0.1%. So what really is going on?
The path of a jet is strong-minded by the angular momentum axis of the rotating supermassive black hole fueling it.
Now that a whole bunch of jet are aligned in ELAIS-N1, it specifies that their black holes are revolving with the similar angular momentum too – so something pretty spooky must've set them this way when the Universe was quiet young and the black holes forming.
According to astronomers there might be a few ways this may have occurred. A massive cosmic magnetic field, exotic particle or cosmic strings – theoretical "fault lines" in the Cosmos – may have set the black holes revolving the same way. Or who knows amazing else completely – astronomers just simply don’t know yet.
In order to crack these mysterious phenomena astronomers are in the pipeline to learn even fainter galaxies in ELAIS-N1, by means of the Australian SKA Pathfinder & South African MeerKAT array, and ultimately, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), which is planned for construction in Western Australia & South Africa.
