New research discloses details of violent phenomena in the center of our galaxy.


UMass Amherst Professor Daniel Wang reveals exciting new research; Using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, Professor Wang documented X-ray thread G0.17-0.41, which hints at a previously unknown interstellar mechanism that may govern the energy flow and potentially the evolution of the Milky Way. Wang's findings give the clearest available picture of a pair of X-ray-emitting plumes emerging from the region near the massive black hole at the center of our galaxy.
