Quotes

..."I went to battle at the telescope to try and get this detection," Faherty says. "I wanted to put war paint under my eyes and wear a bandanna, because I knew this was not going to be an easy thing to do. At the telescope, I've never been so nervous. I've never wanted clear conditions so badly."
"Our findings have profound implications for quasar research. This simple unification scheme presents a pathway to better understand how supermassive black holes accrete matter and interplay with their environments" Shen said
Chris Tinney, an Astronomer at the Australian Centre for Astrobiology, UNSW Australia and co-author on the result stated: "This is a great result. This object is so faint and it's exciting to be the first people to detect it with a telescope on the ground."
...woods until they go through this program," remarked Steven Farber, a Principal Investigator at the Carnegie Institution and cofounder of BioEYES. "They are excited to learn about ecology and biology outside of the traditional classroom setting. Excitement of discovery is the first step toward a career in the life sciences."
