The study of our Galaxy, planets, features, new objects and phenomena will not stop as long as humans are living. Further research made by astronomers has shown something strange in the center of the Milky Way.
The astronomers found gas objects near a black hole in the Galaxy, and a set of new questions has risen. Having to deal with new mysteries all the time it gives the astronomers and scientists the occasion to expand their studies.
What is more interesting about these objects is the fact that they look like gas objects, but they are more like stars. Even Andrea Ghez, who works at the University of California, Los Angeles, is saying the same thing.
The Mysterious Gas Objects from the Center of Our Galaxy
A study about these gas objects exists in the Nature journal. The study says that the objects are gathered in groups all the time. However, after some time, they are moving near a black hole. This happens when the orbit is drawn to the black hole’s orbit.
Also, their orbital cycle is from 100 years to 1.000 years around a black hole, and the best example is the black hole Sagittarius A. Also, the gas objects are not new for the astronomers. They have seen it before, but they look normal. The change happens when they are close to the black hole. The gas objects are looking longer and are leaking gas when they merge into the black hole, for example.
To sum up, the research is showing that the astronomers found out in the center of the Milky Way, two strange objects called the G-objects. G2, for example, thinks the astronomers that are actually two stars orbiting a black hole. They have merged into one big star now, attracted by the black hole, and is full of gas and dirt.
