Observations by ALMA and data from the MUSE spectrograph on ESOs VLT have revealed a colossal fountain of molecular gas powered by a black hole in the brightest galaxy of the Abell 2597 cluster the first of its kind to be detected. The image is a colour composite made from exposures from the Digitized Sky Survey 2 (DSS2), and shows the region surrounding the Abell 2597 cluster. The field of view is approximately 2.4 x 2.0 degrees.
