NASA has released an incredible image that shows the chaotic heart of our Milky Way galaxy with the supermassive black hole Sagittarius A* in the center.

The above image was captured by NASA's Chanda X-ray Observatory, and from looking at the image, we can see Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole that is located at the center of the Milky Way. Sagittarius A* appears as a purple, and white blob in the center of the image, and around it are a variety of gasses.
