Nahum Arav, an astrophysicist at Virginia Tech, observed a quasar, called SDSS J1106+1939, about 13.7 billion years of age. Instruments revealed a giant cloud of hot, ionized gas that was blasted away from the galaxy at nearly 5,000 miles per second (8,000 kilometers per second), or about 2.6 percent the speed of light. The gas is mostly hydrogen with some helium and traces of other elements such as carbon.The energy needed to fire that blast is five times greater than any known quasar.
