NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) released a stunning new picture of our galaxy’s violent, super-energized “downtown" on their social media handles.
It is based on 370 observations made over the past two decades by the orbiting Chandra X-ray Observatory which depicts billions of stars and countless black holes in the center of the Milky Way.
Milky Way is the galaxy that contains the Solar System that consists of the Sun and eight planets; Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
It is a violent energetic ecosystem in the galaxy and there are a lot of supernova remnants, black holes, and neutron stars there, said Astronomer Daniel Wang of the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
Unravel the threads of superheated gas and magnetic fields that make up the tapestry of energy of our Milky Way galaxy. 🌌— NASA (@NASA) May 27, 2021
