What’s Glowing In The Milky Way?
What would you do if you found out that somewhere in the night sky there was a mysterious light, unlike anything we’ve ever seen before? What if we told you that this light sits at the center of our galaxy, and NASA has no idea what it is? It might sound like science fiction, but it’s a real-life interstellar mystery that’s unfolding minute by minute. There really is a bright light, and it went unnoticed by the scientific community up until recently. But what is this light, how did it go undetected for so long, and what made scientists think this was the proof of dark matter they’ve been looking for? To answer these questions, first, we need to talk about how we discovered this light.
