Black holes are often described as the monsters of the universe—tearing apart stars, consuming anything that comes too close, and holding light captive.

Detailed evidence from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, however, shows a black hole in a new light: Fostering rather than suppressing star formation.

Dwarf starburst galaxy Henize 2-10 sparkles with young stars in this Hubble visible-light image.

The bright region at the center, surrounded by pink clouds and dark dust lanes, indicates the location of the galaxy's massive black hole and active stellar nurseries.

A pullout of the central region of dwarf starburst galaxy Henize 2-10 traces an outflow, or bridge, of hot gas 230 light-years long, connecting the galaxy's massive black hole and a star-forming region.

Hubble data on the velocity of the outflow from the black hole, as well as the age of the young stars, indicates a causal relationship between the two.

A few million years ago, the outflow of hot gas slammed into the dense cloud of a stellar nursery and spread out, like water from a hose impacting a mound of dirt.

Now clusters of young stars are aligned perpendicular to the outflow, revealing the path of its spread.

Hubble finds a Black Hole Igniting Star Formation in a Dwarf Galaxy

Hubble imaging and spectroscopy of the dwarf starburst galaxy Henize 2-10 clearly show a gas outflow stretching from the black hole to a bright star birth region like an umbilical cord, triggering the already dense cloud into forming clusters of stars.
