The ‘unpredictable and chaotic’ supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy is a ‘leaching jet-like flash of lightning’

Our Milky Way galaxy has a hole in its central black hole, according to a new statement from NASA.

Super big black hole, named Sagittarius A*, is believed to leak a ‘welding torch-like jet’ dating back at least several thousand years.

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has captured new images of the Milky Way.

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has captured new images of the Milky Way.

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, launched into space in 1990, has yet to capture the ‘ghost’-like jet beams.

However, the famous telescope has captured a composite image of the matter around the black hole.

This “evidence of the situation,” as NASA is calling it, allows researchers to look at the behavioral patterns of black holes so they can learn more about their existence.

The composite image revealed to researchers bright X-ray radiation, bright clouds of molecular gas, and hot ionized gas near the black hole.

Especially in the image is the top of an orange gas cloud and the jet’s jet of the black hole colliding with hydrogen gas before dispersing upwards.

Sagittarius A* is still “pushing weakly into a giant cloud of hydrogen and then splashing, like a narrow stream from a hose aimed at a pile of sand,” NASA said in their statement. .

Also visible in the image (pictured below) is the superheated gas in blue and the green molecular gas in green – as imaged via X-rays.

These observations are serving as strong evidence that supermassive black holes can sometimes absorb stars and clouds of gas and then eject superheated matter.

This latest news from NASA comes as a new study, led by graduate student Alexis Andres, finds that the center of Sagittarius A* flares up daily and is quite chaotic.

This data could help researchers learn in the future whether variations in flares from Sagittarius A* are caused by passing clouds or gaseous stars, or something previously unobserved.

This image, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, could give researchers insight into black holes.
