Mysterious Structures Hiding In The Heart Of Milky Way Galaxy Found

A study published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters reveals that mysterious structures hiding in the heart of the Milky Way Galaxy have been found.

Astronomers have for the first time discovered something unique hiding in the center of the Milky Way galaxy, these filaments are hiding in the heart of the galaxy.

They were first spotted as a one-off filament in the 1980s dangling vertically near Sagittarius A*, the central supermassive black hole in our galaxy. The new analysis has revealed a complete population of these filaments that are spreading out like spokes on a wheel from the black hole.

The study led by Northwestern University’s Farhad Yusef-Zadeh is published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, which details the evidence for a distinct population of short filaments with PA close to the Galactic plane.

“It was a surprise to suddenly find a new population of structures that seem to be pointing in the direction of the black hole. I was actually stunned when I saw these. We had to do a lot of work to establish that we weren’t fooling ourselves,” said Farhad Yusef-Zadeh, who had first discovered these mysterious structures in the 1980s.
