The supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy, the Milky Way, is firing jets of hydrogen and other substances, says the American Space Agency (NASA).
Contrary to what many people think, the gigantic black hole located in the center of the Milky Way is not dormant.
“The Milky Way’s black hole, with a mass of 4.1 million ‘Suns’, is not quite a hibernating monster, but it has periodic ‘hiccups’ as gases and stars and clouds fall into it,” explains the US agency .

Considered the most powerful force in the universe, black holes are born from the explosions of dying supernovae, stars in the final stages of life. The gravitational pull of these objects is so powerful that even light cannot escape.
It is, precisely, the gigantic force of attraction that launches jets with substances. As black holes pull gases, cosmic dust, planets and even stars, occasionally there is the phenomenon of dispersion of some of these substances, a kind of blowing.
“As it blows through the gas, this jet disperses into various streams. These currents pass through the Milky Way’s gas disk,” commented astronomer and study co-author Alex Wagner, from Tsukuba University, in Japan.
