US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Scientists in the course of the next research were able to understand in more detail the nature of the elements of the Milky Way galaxy. So, they studied the dense gas formation that interferes with the study of our galaxy.
For a long time, scientists could not study the central regions of the Milky Way, as they were obscured by the so-called Fermi bubbles. They represent large-scale emissions of high-energy gas coming from the core of our galactic system. Bubbles are huge: they stretch for 50 thousand light-years from the galactic center and develop speeds of over several million miles per hour.
The Wisconsin H-Alpha Mapper was used to study the Milky Way. He made it possible to find out a number of important parameters of the objects of study: their density, speed, temperature. According to experts, millions of years ago, an event occurred that triggered the appearance of Fermi bubbles. Some believe that a black hole in the center of the Milky Way captured a cloud of hydrogen, resulting in a huge surge of energy.
The data obtained can now be used in various models. It has become possible to track emissions associated with Fermi bubbles on a large scale. It is possible that over time, scientists will find out past events in space, which gave rise to gas objects. So far, scientists have studied the very essence of formations, while their origin remains a big question.
