The Milky Way’s supermassive black hole is leaking gas


The supermassive black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy is leaking.

The Milky Way’s central black hole, known as Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*), has been “leaking” or emitting jet-like superheated beams for several thousand years. In a composite image captured with the Hubble Space Telescope, researchers have revealed bright X-ray radiation as well as bright clouds of molecular gas and heated ionized gas near the black hole.
