Fermi Discovers Two Milky Way Gamma-Ray Bubbles
The latest discovery from the NASA Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope is a pair of gamma-ray emitting bubbles that extend perpendicular to the galactic plane and may be the remnants of an expulsion from a black hole at the center of the Milk Way; click though for a video further explaining the discovery:
Using data from NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, scientists have recently discovered a gigantic, mysterious structure in our galaxy. This feature looks like a pair of bubbles extending above and below our galaxy’s center. Each lobe is 25,000 light-years tall and the whole structure may be only a few million years old.
