A NASA composite image, featuring both X-ray data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory with radio emission from the NSF's Very Large Array (VLA) released on November 20, 2013 shows new evidence that has been uncovered for the presence of a jet of high-energy particles blasting out of the Milky Way's supermassive black hole. Astronomers have been looking for a jet from Sgr A* for years since it is now common to find jets tied to a range of cosmic objects on both big and small scales. Prior to this latest study, there have been reports of possible evidence of a jet associated with Sgr A*. REUTERS/X-ray: NASA/CXC/UCLA/Z.
