Frederick Hamann, a professor of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at UCR conducts an academic sky survey research and eventually discovered a new population of extremely red quasars. The extremity of the quasars' redness led the researcher and his team to speculate that this population might be at the youngest onset of revolution brought about by erratic explosions of dust and gas in the galaxy.

With the findings published in the journal the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, lead researcher Frederick Hamann is now confident with an upcoming survey. This only means that he and his team can again utilize Baryon Oscillation Sky Survey (BOSS) of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) detecting units to further the research.

The emergence of this new population of quasars hinted various theories among a lot of scholars. The characteristic of these quasars, especially the extremely red color, proved to be very strange for starters.

The most plausible explanation for this peculiar configuration around the black holes is that the gas and dust particles around them must have very high, active and energetic composition to be able spew out such extreme redness. Ideally, a normal environment surrounding any black hole can only hold very few gas and dust movements so that it doesn't look very much extended from afar, UCR Today stated.

By the looks of it, these quasars, group of black holes, turned out to be receptacles of very strong dust and gas particles forced out by erratic galaxy-wide blowouts. Now, when these elements fall into the black hole's event horizon, they trigger a strong response from the black hole.

Radiation then is emitted in the process. Since the radiation response is an outward force, some dust and gas particles are spewed out which then become very excited particles surrounding the black hole.

But what is most interesting about this configuration yet is that these reddened black holes can eventually hinder the birth of stars. This is due to the excited gas and dust particles. Despite the gas and dust particles responsible for the birth of the star, they can also hinder such birth, iTechPost stated.

As to how this happens, astronomers are yet to find out. Meanwhile, Hamann and his team are ensuring more research findings to be published in the future.
