Astronomers obtained the first resolved image of disturbed gaseous clouds in a galaxy 11 billion light years away by using ALMA. The team found that the disruption is caused by young powerful jets ejected from a supermassive black hole residing at the center of the host galaxy. This result will cast light on the mystery of the evolutionary process of galaxies in the early Universe.
