Astronomy Science ~ A mysterious object in the center of the galaxy has made astronomers puzzled. Astronomers have identified what they say as the clouds of gas orbiting very close around a supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way 13 years ago. This object could be one in a series of gas clouds that would soon become a black hole snacks.

The newly discovered object called G1. An object known as the G2 has been in the news more than a year ago, since astronomers at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Germany create the hypothesis that it is a cloud of gas. If that is true, then this object will lose some of its material as in eating a supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy (known as Sagittarius A * or Sgr A *). These giant black holes - the name is pronounced Sagittarius A (star) - not often eat the material, so that this event will be a rare opportunity for astronomers to see a black hole eating.

Using a combination of simulation and high-resolution images, researchers at the Max Planck Institute concludes that the object G1 (blue) will take the road which is very similar to the object G2 (red) around the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way (marked with "x")
Scientists at the Max Planck argued that the G2 is a cloud of gas, while group of researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, led by astrophysicist Andrea Ghez, found more similar G2 star surrounded by a layer of dust and gas. During the summer, G2 made the closest approach to the black hole and not torn. Ghez and her group believes that this is a knockout blow gas cloud theory - clear evidence that G2 is a solid object.

But researchers at the Max Planck Institute reply with an explanation of how G2 can remain intact even if it is a cloud of gas. Their theory incorporates the notion that the G2 was once part of a larger cloud of gas that is then broken into smaller gas clouds which all follow the same path, like beads on a thread. Gas "beads" has previously been observed in the universe. If additional gas clouds can be identified following the same path as the G2, it can indicate that the G2 is a cloud of gas and not a star, scientists said.

In their most recent paper, the group Max Planck provide computer models that retrace the G1 path. According to their research, G1 follow the path almost similar to G2. The model does not make certain assumptions about the motion G1 - for example, this object will slow down over the closest approach to the black hole.

"Model with the data to make the idea that G1 and G2 are part of the same gas flow," says Stefan Gillessen, a co-author on the new study.

The new study was first published in the journal online at arXiv.org preprint and has been accepted in the Astrophysical Journal.
