In older galaxies, it is the huge black holes that prevent the formation of new stars. The back holes emit huge quantities of radio-frequency emitting particles which cause this, according to a new study conducted by researchers at the John Hopkins University.

The findings of the study were recently published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. The study has provided evidence that the radio-frequency feedback emitted by the black holes prevents hot gases from cooling and collapsing to form a star, which is the normal process ...
