The extraordinary radio galaxy MRC B1221-423: probing deeper at radio and optical wavelengths

Abstract:

We present optical spectra and high-resolution multiwavelength radio observations of the compact steep-spectrum radio source MRC B1221-423 (z = 0.1706). MRC B1221-423 is a very young (∼105 yr), powerful radio source which is undergoing a tidal interaction with a companion galaxy. We find strong evidence of interaction between the active galactic nucleus (AGN) and its environment. The radio morphology is highly distorted, showing a dramatic interaction between the radio jet and the host galaxy...
