  • F00183-7111 is one of the most extreme Ultra-Luminous Infrared Galaxies known. Here we present a VLBI image which shows that F00183-7111 is powered by a combination of a radio-loud Active Galactic Nucleus surrounded by vigorous starburst activity. Although already radio-loud, the quasar jets are only 1.7 kpc long, boring through the dense gas and starburst activity that conne them. We appear to be witnessing this remarkable source in the brief transition period between merging starburst and… CONTINUE READING
