The image was taken by the orbiting Chandra X-ray Observatory in 1999. The contrast of the images was given by the MeerKAT radio telescope, located in North Africa.
NASA has published an image of the center of the Milky Way. You can see, among other things, hot gas columns
In the photo you posted NASA, which consists of 370 observations documented over two decades, you can see threads of overheating Gas I magnetic fieldsthat intertwine at the center of the galaxy Milky Way. The image also includes:at. Large plumes of hot gas extend about 700 light-years above and below the galactic plane.
As I mentioned nasa.gov“The images show that magnetic filaments tend to appear at the outer limits of large streaks of hot gas.” This means that the gas accumulating in the column “drives magnetic fields, which form filaments when they collide with each other.”
The photo was taken during the coronavirus pandemic
“What we see in the image is a violent or active ecosystem in the center of our galaxy,” he explained, citing theguardian.com, astronomer Daniel Wang of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, who has been working on the image for the past year. Wang added that the image shows “many supernova remnants, black holes and neutron stars.” The center of the Milky Way is 26,000 light years from Earth.
