The Galactic Center

  • K. Y. Lo (a1)

Extract

The center of our Galaxy contains an extremely compact nonthermal radio source. For the first time, elongation in the source structure has been detected. The long axis is nearly aligned with the minor axis of the Galaxy. Recent high resolution observations of the ionized gas within the central 3 parsecs suggest that matter may be falling in towards the center. This has interesting implications on the processes within our Galactic nucleus.
