Chandra Telescope Spots Exhaust Vent in Sagittarius A

NASA’s Chandra X-Ray space telescope has discovered a exhaust vent in a supermassive black hole in our own milky way.

The black hole is Sagittarius A, which is about 14.6 million miles across. It’s also 26,000 light years away from us, making us pretty safe from being devoured.

The vent which was discovered in linked to a chimney formation in the Milky Way’s disk. It’s funneling hot gas away from the black hole. It’s also located about 700 light-years away from the regions center.
