Something is keeping the universe's fastest-moving particles from entering the center of our galaxy.

The center of the Milky Way may be even more bizarre than astronomers thought, according to a new study.

For the study, a team of researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Nanjing investigated a map of radioactive gamma-rays — the highest-energy form of light in the universe, which can arise when extremely high-speed particles called cosmic rays crash into ordinary matter — blasting in and around the center of our galaxy.

The map revealed that something near the center of the galaxy appears to be accelerating particles to mind-blowing speeds — very near the speed of light — and creating an abundance of cosmic rays and gamma-rays just outside the galactic center.

A Gigantic Cavity Is Splitting Milky Way Constellations

Astronomers have discovered a giant, 500-light-year-wide cavity between two star-forming regions in the constellations Perseus and Taurus.

An ancient supernova could be the culprit.
