Overview of the press release
ALMA image of the distant galaxy J1243+0100 hosting a supermassive black hole in its center. The distribution of the quiet gas in the galaxy is shown in yellow and the distribution of high-speed galactic wind is shown in blue. The wind is located in the center of the galaxy, which indicates the wind is driven by the supermassive black hole. Credit: ALMA (ESO/NAOJ/NRAO), Izumi et al.
