Despite strong physical reasons that they should exist and decades of searching, jets from the Galactic center black hole, Sgr A*, have not yet been convincingly detected. Based on high-resolution Very Large Array images and ultra-deep imaging-spectroscopic data produced by the Chandra X-ray Observatory, we report new evidence for the existence of a parsec-scale jet from Sgr A*, by associating a linear feature G359.944−0.052, previously identified in X-ray images of the Galactic center, with a… 
A Deep Chandra View of a Candidate Parsec-scale Jet from the Galactic Center Supermassive Black Hole
We have investigated the linear X-ray filament, G359.944−0.052, previously identified as a likely X-ray counterpart of a parsec-scale jet from the Galactic Center supermassive black hole (SMBH)
SGR A* AND ITS ENVIRONMENT: LOW-MASS STAR FORMATION, THE ORIGIN OF X-RAY GAS AND COLLIMATED OUTFLOW
We present high-resolution multiwavelength radio continuum images of the region within 150″ of Sgr A*, revealing a number of new extended features and stellar sources in this region. First, we detect
Fermi bubble simulations: black hole feedback in the Milky Way
Abstract The Fermi γ-ray telescope discovered a pair of bubbles at the Galactic center. These structures are spatially-correlated with the microwave emission detected by the WMAP and Planck
A New Perspective on the Radio Active Zone at The Galactic Center - Feedback from Nuclear Activities
New observations of Sgr A have been carried out with the Jansky VLA in the B and C arrays using the broadband (2 GHz) continuum mode at 5.5 GHz. The field of view covers the central 13′ (30 pc)
Evidence for a jet and outflow from Sgr A*: a continuum and spectral line study
We study the environment of Sgr A* using spectral and continuum observations with the ALMA and VLA. Our analysis of sub-arcsecond H30alpha, H39alpha, H52alpha and H56alpha line emission towards Sgr
NuSTAR HARD X-RAY SURVEY OF THE GALACTIC CENTER REGION. I. HARD X-RAY MORPHOLOGY AND SPECTROSCOPY OF THE DIFFUSE EMISSION
We present the first sub-arcminute images of the Galactic Center above 10 keV, obtained with NuSTAR. NuSTAR resolves the hard X-ray source IGR J17456–2901 into non-thermal X-ray filaments, molecular
Toward the event horizon—the supermassive black hole in the Galactic Center
The center of our Galaxy hosts the best constrained supermassive black hole in the universe, Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*). Its mass and distance have been accurately determined from stellar orbits and
A Nonthermal Radio Filament Connected to the Galactic Black Hole?
Using the Very Large Array, we have investigated a nonthermal radio filament (NTF) recently found very near the Galactic black hole and its radio counterpart, Sgr A*. While this NTF—the Sgr A West
THE INTRINSIC TWO-DIMENSIONAL SIZE OF SAGITTARIUS A*
We report the detection of the two-dimensional structure of the radio source associated with the Galactic Center black hole, Sagittarius A*, obtained from Very Long Baseline Array observations at a

A 3 pc SCALE JET-DRIVEN OUTFLOW FROM SGR A*
The compact radio source Sgr A* is coincident with a 4 × 106 M☉ black hole at the dynamical center of the Galaxy and is surrounded by dense orbiting ionized and molecular gas. We present
How to hide large-scale outflows: size constraints on the jets of Sgr A*
Despite significant strides made towards understanding accretion, outflow and emission processes in the Galactic Centre supermassive black hole Sagittarius A*, the presence of jets has been neither
Event-horizon-scale structure in the supermassive black hole candidate at the Galactic Centre
TLDR
Observations at a wavelength of 1.3 mm set a size of microarcseconds on the intrinsic diameter of Sagittarius A*, suggesting that the bulk of Sgr A* emission may not be centred on the black hole, but arises in the surrounding accretion flow.
Origin of the hot gas and radio blobs at the Galactic Centre
RECENT infrared observations1 have revealed hot gas, with a temperature possibly as high as one million degrees, associated with a small cavity 2 arcseconds in diameter in one of the ionized gas
