Astronomers finally solved the mystery of celestial body located at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.
Recently, researchers of University of California discovered that the entity is a union of two stars. The object is entirely wrapped with the dust and gases.
Scientist revealed some really significant information about these stars and named it as G2. They informed that it is merely a pair of stars that had been around Sagittarius A. Sagittarius A is a really sharp and astronomical radio source.
Now the two stars have merged and created an incredibly huge new star which is covered by gas and dust.
Researchers have been trying to find out the reality of the particular object since several years. Earlier, they supposed that the object is nothing but a cloud of hydrogen gas.
Andrea Ghez, the professor of UCLA informed that G2 survived the massive destruction of black hole. Generally, people think that black hole is an empty space. However, the black holes are the objects of intense density which has a really powerful gravitational attraction. It has such an extreme gravitational appeal from which even light cannot run away.
Therefore, the affect of black hole is pretty evident on the stars of the Milky Way. G2 is also one of the neighbor stars of black hole which is formed through the strong gravitational force of black hole.
The study is printed in Monday’s edition of The Astrophysical Journal. The entire report is based on the Keck telescope observations from Hawaii.
