Cold gas in the Milky Way's nuclear wind

Di Teodoro, Enrico Maria; McClure-Griffiths, Naomi; Lockman, Felix J; Armillotta, Lucia

Description

The centre of the Milky Way hosts several high-energy processes that have strongly affected the inner regions of our Galaxy. Activity from the super-massive black hole at the Galactic Centre, which is coincident with the radio source Sagittarius A*, and stellar feedback from the inner molecular ring1 expel matter and energy from the disk in the form of a galactic wind2. Multiphase gas has been observed within this outflow, including hot highly ionized3,4 (temperatures of about 106 kelvin), warm...[Show more]
