Check Out The Latest From The Center Of Our Galaxy

Hey Space Placers!

Check out this story about new stars forming incredibly close to the 4.4 million mass black hole at the center of our Milky Way Galaxy.

An ALMA image of the center of the Milky Way galaxy showing the location of 11 young protostars within about 3 light-years of our galaxy's supermassive black hole. The lines indicate the direction of the bipolar lobes created by high-velocity jets from the protostars. The illustrated star in the middle of the image indicates the location of Sagittarius A*, the 4 million solar mass supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy. The next image is a zoom-in to one of the protostars.
