With the help the slitless grism on Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Camera 3 to probe the distant universe, astronomers have found supermassive black holes growing in surprisingly small galaxies. This new findings suggest that central black holes formed at an earlier stage in galaxy evolution. The objects of Hubble’s study became 28 galaxies, which are located at a distance of 10 billion light-years away. This color images were generated from exposures in six different Hubble filters and provide detailed information about the different wavelengths of light coming from the galaxies. According to astronomers this new study gives them a view of galaxies as they appeared when the universe was less than a quarter of its current age and shows that central black holes formed at an early stage in galaxy evolution.
