Hercules A (3C 348)


Spectacular jets powered by the gravitational energy of a supermassive black hole in the core of the elliptical galaxy Hercules A illustrate the combined imaging power of two of astronomy's cutting-edge tools, the Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Camera 3, and the recently upgraded Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) radio telescope in New Mexico.



This Hubble Space Telescope composite of V and I filters shows the active galaxy 3C 348, also known as Hercules A. The Hubble data were taken in October of 2012.
