In the center of our galaxy the black hole is detected

Matter circles closely around Sagittarius A*.

However, there is no denying that it might happen because scientists have confirmed that there is indeed, a black hole in the center of the Milky Way, our galaxy.

According to a statement by an worldwide group of astronomers, our planet near a black hole.

New observations show gas swirling around the Milky Way's black hole at about 30 percent of the speed of light on a circular orbit. The head of the group, Andreas Eckart, says: 'The heart pieces of GRAVITY were built in Cologne.

Scientists are creating larger and larger telescopes that will give us even more impressive images in the future.

The panel voted 21-2 against the drug, saying the data did not support a favorable benefit-risk profile, the article reported. The drug was developed by GW Pharmaceuticals and will be marketed in the USA by its subsidiary, Greenwich Biosciences.

Dr. Straubmeier has carried out the technical realization of the spectrometers in Cologne. They used the said telescope to monitor infrared radiation flares coming from the accretion disc around Sagittarius A which is the massive object at the center of our galaxy.

Reinhard Genzel, of the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, added: "This is the closest yet we have come to see the immediate zone around a supermassive black hole with direct, spatially resolved techniques". 'GRAVITY and its tremendous sensitivity allowed us to observe the accretion processes in real-time at unprecedented detail'. What's more, the recent observations offer the most detailed view yet of material orbiting so close to a black hole, according to the statement.

During the star's close flyby, the team saw the strong infrared emissions coming from highly energetic electrons located very close to the galaxy's black hole.

Experts are investigating the monstrous "Sagittarius A*" black hole, which is spinning a whopping 26,000 light years away from Earth. Specifically, they found that the emissions originate from magnetic interactions in the very hot gas orbiting very close to Sagittarius A*. The motion of the three flares observed in the galactic centre can be explained by a simple orbit model with a radius of seven to ten times the event horizon.

Scientists say an object that massive - over four million times the mass of our Sun - that fits within such a small orbit is nearly certainly a black hole.
