Towering Balloon-like Features Discovered near Center of the Milky Way

National Radio Astronomy Observatory

An international team of astronomers has discovered one of the largest features ever observed in the center of the Milky Way – a pair of enormous radio-emitting bubbles that tower hundreds of light-years above and below the central region of our galaxy. This hourglass-like feature, which dwarfs all other radio structures in the galactic center, is likely the result of a phenomenally energetic burst that erupted near the Milky Way’s supermassive black hole a few million years ago.

Planetary Rings of Uranus ‘Glow’ in Cold Light

National Radio Astronomy Observatory

Summary: Using the both ALMA and the VLT, astronomers have imaged the cold, rock-strewn rings encircling the planet Uranus. Rather than observing the reflected sunlight from these rings, ALMA and the VLT imaged the millimeter and mid-infrared “glow” naturally emitted by the frigidly cold particles of the rings themselves.

Black Hole's Tug on Space Pulls Fast-Moving Jets in Rapid Wobble

National Radio Astronomy Observatory

A spinning black hole pulls in material from a companion star, and its gravitational effect causes ejected jets of material to wobble like a child's spinning top.

EHT Radio Astronomy Newsroom

National Radio Astronomy Observatory

The first direct visual evidence of a black hole will help scientists understand how the universe behaves under conditions of extreme gravity, forces so strong that they warp the fabric of space and time.
