Scientists Take Viewers on a Virtual Trip to the Center of the Milky Way in this 2-Minute Video

Astronomers are interested in better understanding how the stars interact with the Galactic center’s most dominant resident: the supermassive black hole known as Sagittarius A* (abbreviated Sgr A*). The Galactic Center visualization is a 360-degree movie that immerses the viewer into a simulation of the center of our Galaxy. The viewer is at the location of Sgr A* and is able to see about 25 Wolf-Rayet stars (white, twinkling objects) orbiting Sgr A* as they continuously eject stellar winds (black to red to yellow color scale).

Supermassive Black Hole Devours a Passing Star Creating the Biggest Blast Ever

The results of 10 months of observation indicate that the event was probably caused by a rapidly spinning supermassive black hole as it destroyed a low-mass star. This was no supernova. It was unlike anything we’ve ever seen before, and it’s likely because rapidly rotating supermassive black holes are the exception, rather than the rule.

New Research Predicts Billions Of Habitable Planets in the Milky Way Galaxy

Researchers looking for habitable planets in the Milky Way galaxy are using a model that estimates more planets could support life than previously thought. Their findings indicate the Milky Way is home to billions of planets properly positioned from their parent stars for liquid surface water, and therefore potentially habitable.
