  • High-redshift quasars can be used to trace the early growth of massive galaxies and may be triggered by galaxy–galaxy interactions. We present Multi-Object Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE) science verification data on one such interacting system consisting of the well-studied z = 3.2 PKS1614+051 quasar, its AGN companion galaxy and bridge of material radiating in Ly α between the quasar and its companion. We find a total of four companion galaxies (at least two galaxies are new discoveries), three… CONTINUE READING
