A team of researchers has analyzed what little activity exists around the black hole at the center of our galaxy. By studying 3 million seconds of observations taken by the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, the team found that much of the nearby radiation comes from material that is ejected before reaching the black hole, with very little energy arising from the black hole itself.

/ NGC Trifid Nebula in Sagittarius. Its name means 'divided into 3 lobes.' The object is an unusual combination of an open cluster of stars; an emission nebula; a reflection nebula & a dark nebula about 5200 light years away.

Dusty Space CloudThis image shows the Large Magellanic Cloud galaxy in infrared light as seen by the Herschel Space Observatory, a European Space Agency-led mission with important NASA contributions, and NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. In the instruments' combined data, this nearby dwarf galaxy looks like a fiery, circular explosion. Rather than fire, however, those ribbons are actually giant ripples of dust spanning tens or hundreds of light-years. Significant fields of star formation are…
