A giant black hole in the center of the galaxy 4C+29.30 is generating two powerful jets of particles.
The X-rays reveal superheated gas swirling around the black hole, some of which may eventually be consumed by it.
The black hole at the center of 4C+29.30 is thought to be about 100 million times more massive than our Sun.
This composite image of a galaxy illustrates how the intense gravity of a supermassive black hole can be tapped to generate immense power.
