Mini-Jet Found Near Milky Way’s Supermassive Black Hole
Our Milky Way’s central black hole has a leak! This supermassive black hole, over 4 million times more massive than our Sun, looks like it still has the remnants of a blowtorch-like jet dating back several thousand years.
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope hasn’t photographed the phantom jet yet, but it has helped find circumstantial evidence that the jet is still pushing feebly into a huge hydrogen cloud.
