There's a Strange Glowing Ring Around Our Galaxy's Black Hole
The idea of a black hole is weird in it of itself????but the Milky Way’s black hole has a glowing ring that’s stumping scientists????The hole is mostly quiescent, meaning it’s fairly dormant????but Sagittarius A* still has a mysterious ring????Now, a collision involving speedy gas cloud called G2 is giving insight????G2 experienced drag force (got slower) while crashing through the material????Astronomers measured that to find the density of the atmosphere around the hole????That was previously unobtainable and could help reveal what the ring is made of????Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics published the findings in the Astrophysical Journal??
At the center of a galaxy more than 55 million light-years away, there's a supermassive black hole with the mass of several billion suns. And now, for the first time ever, we can see it. Astrophysicist..
