Balls from Sagittarius A

In the center of the Milky Way’s supermassive black hole with a mass of about 4.3 million solar masses – Sagittarius A *. If some unfortunate celebrities appear in its event horizon, they are ripped to shreds. It would seem that then followed the end of the story, however, it is not necessarily true. As it turns out, Sagittarius A * can replace the guts of these stars in the spheres larger than Neptune and spit out 95 percent of them beyond our galaxy at a speed of 10,000 kilometers per second.

Such a conclusion drawn from the research results, which were presented at this year’s meeting of the American Astronomical Society. Eden Girma – a student at Harvard University, wondered what would happen to a star who would find themselves too close to Sagittarius A *. To find the answer to this question, decided to perform accurate calculations and simulations. Girma stresses that described its objects can also occur in other galaxies, because most of them have black holes at their centers. – “Other galaxies like Andromeda Galaxy shoot at us as ‘balls’ all the time.” – She said. After all, even if in the end could we see one of them, rather we could not discover its origin.
