  SPACE.com -- Astronomers Capture Images of Quasar from when the Universe was Young
In astronomers' parlance, the quasar is at a redshift of 6.4.
The combined discoveries suggest that galaxies and quasars co-existed in the first years of the universe, said Meg Urry, a Yale University researcher who was not involved in either study.
Quasars are probably a phase of galaxy formation, Urry said, and the distant galaxies seen by Hubble have probably already had a quasar phase.

 AllRefer.com - quasar (Astronomy, General) - Encyclopedia
Quasars were discovered as the visible counterparts of certain discrete celestial sources of radio waves (see radio astronomy).
If quasars were simply objects being ejected from nearby galaxies at high speeds, and not the distant objects they appear to be, then some would have blue shifts.
To account for such brilliant light, astronomers believe that quasars are supermassive fl holes in galactic nuclei, releasing energy by the accretion of matter through a rotating viscous disk (see cosmology).

 Quasars
The quasars were deemed to be strange new phenomena, and initially there was considerable speculation that new laws of physics might have to be invented to account for the amount of energy that they produced.
Quasars are extremely luminous at all wavelengths and exhibit variability on timescales as little as hours, indicating that their enormous energy output originates in a very compact source.
Thus, the observation of quasars at large distances and their scarcity nearby implies that they were much more common in the early Universe than they are now, as illustrated in the adjacent figure (see the Source for a further discussion of the figure).

 Quasars as Ejection Phenomena, and the Redshift Controversy
The topic of quasars as ejection phenomena from galaxies, and redshifts as intrinsic components of quasars, rather than indicators of distance and velocity, has been controversial since it was proposed three decades ago.
The density excess of quasars near one spiral galaxy, NGC 1097, with an inner and outer ring, appears to coincide with the axis as defined by extensive optical jets.
Quasars were thought to inhabit the nuclei of huge, bright and chaotic galaxies, but new observations show that this is not the case.

It is believed that the power of a quasar derives from a massive fl hole at its center.
.) The light of most if not all quasars is variable over time intervals between a few days and several years, so their diameters must not be much larger than the diameter of the solar system; yet they are the intrinsically brightest objects known (for 3C 273 (z = 0.158), M

 SPACE.com -- Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Quasar
One result is that Rickett was able to resolve the radio waves from the quasar with a resolution at least 50 times better than what's achievable with the best ground-based radio telescopes and 20 times better than space-based radio telescopes.
Quasars, short for quasi-stellar radio sources, were first noticed in the 1950s and '60s and were thought to be nearby stars that behaved strangely.
They are, then, relics of the early universe, since the emissions of a quasar 10 billion light-years away left the quasar 10 billion years ago, taking that long to reach terrestrial telescopes.

 Gene Smith's Astronomy Tutorial - Quasars   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Quasars were discovered in 1963 as radio telescopes began to be able to pinpoint sources of radio waves more precisely.
The question was complicated by the discovery that quasars vary in brightness, sometimes by huge amounts in periods as small as a week or so.
Some astronomers speculate that stars which orbit to near the central quasar may be first puffed up by the intense radiation field, then tidally disrupted by the intense gravitational field, and finally pulled into a swirling disk of accreted material which will eventually be swallowed by the massive central fl hole.

 Quasar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
To be observable at that distance, the energy output of quasars must dwarf that of almost every known astrophysical phenomenon with the exception of comparatively short-lived supernovae and gamma-ray bursts.
Quasars are believed to be powered by accretion of material onto supermassive fl holes in the nuclei of distant galaxies, making these luminous versions of the general class of objects known as active galaxies.
Later it was found that not all (actually only 10% or so) quasars have strong radio emission (are 'radio-loud').

 ESA Portal - Hubble captures a 'quintuple' quasar
Although other multiply lensed quasars have been seen before, this is the only case so far in which multiple quasar images are produced by an entire galaxy cluster acting as a gravitational lens.
The background quasar observed by Hubble is the brilliant core of a galaxy.
When the quasar’s light passes through the gravity field of the galaxy cluster that lies between us and the quasar, the light is bent by the space-warping gravity field in such a way that five separate images of the object are produced around the cluster’s centre.

 Radio to X-ray Observation of Quasars   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Quasars are multi-wavelength emitters, with roughly equal energy output per decade from far-infrared through to X-ray frequencies.
The main differences between the two well-established classes of quasars: radio-loud and radio-quiet, are the slope of the X-ray spectrum and the strength of the mm break, with the radio-loud objects having ~3 orders of magnitude stronger radio emission and flatter X-ray slopes.
In a study of the SEDs of quasars, we wish to determine the SED as it was emitted by the quasar rather than as it appears to us.

 Schneier on Security: Quasar Encryption
As far as which quasar, there are a limited number in view, and a limited number that are going to be useful to both parties, as the quasar has to be simultaneously visible to both parties for them to capture the random noise.
The key is not the data from the quasar; the key is the identity of the quasar to use and the time at which to start reading data from it.
Using quasars is better precisely because their time series is not available in the newspaper, and getting hold of the data is nontrivial.
