The mystery of the center of the Milky Way: 70 years later, astronomers are still arguing about the mushroom cloud in the center of the Milky Way… Is this caused by exploding stars or black holes that swallow gas clouds?
- The strange cloud cluster that began in the 1950s is called the “Arctic Polar Region”
- Experts have put forward some ideas, including exploding stars, but lack of evidence
- Now, new images may help solve the mystery of the center of the galaxy
The yellow clouds flying up from the center of the Milky Way galaxy tens of thousands of light-years have puzzled astrophysicists for more than 70 years, and this may finally explain it.
Space experts discovered the mysterious celestial body hanging above the Milky Way house in the 1950s and named it “Arctic Polar Region.”
Initially, people thought it was just part of the space debris in the night sky, but some astronomers thought it was part of the expanding shock wave.
In order to do this, another cloud will be seen under the Milky Way, but until 2010, a space telescope picked up the light of two huge bubbles from very faint gamma rays without any evidence.
Yellow clouds billowing from the center of the Milky Way have been haunting experts for decades
Now, new images obtained from the operating telescope called eROSITA have helped form two specific views.
Based on the energy required to produce huge mushroom cloud bubbles, experts say that the first option is to suddenly form thousands of waves of giant stars and explode quickly.
Another option suggests that the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy may have captured a large number of gas clouds, which swallowed half of the clouds, while its energy gushes out from above and below the galaxy, causing bubbles.
Kaukaka Jun, an astronomer at Waseda University in Japan, said the first idea: “The metal abundance is very small.
New images obtained by astronomers from telescopes in orbit helped astronomers come up with two ideas
“So I don’t think there was an explosion.”
Peter Predehl, an astrophysicist at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Germany, adds that he agrees that this is more likely to be the second idea:
He said: “We did some analysis.
“I think now [the debate] Complete, more or less. “
These research teams agreed that a massive explosion occurred at the center of the Milky Way about 15 to 20 million years ago, and we can still see it today.
Last year, researchers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, and San Diego High School believed that the Milky Way may be the home of foreign civilizations, but it is likely that most people are dead.
The statement comes from who used the updated version of the equation to calculate the possible existence of intelligent life, and the determined aliens may have appeared about 8 billion years after our galaxy formed.
Through these results, the research team came to the idea that advances in science and technology inevitably lead to the destruction of civilization, and because humans have not yet come into contact with outside of our planet, scientists now think they know why.
