At the center of the Milky Way galaxy lies a supermassive black hole, and thanks to a team of researchers, including a U-M scientist, we now have photographic evidence of its existence. An associate research scientist at the University of Michigan, Mark Reynolds, was part of the multi-wavelength team, making observations at multiple wavelengths, such as radio, infrared, X-ray, and gamma-ray. Reynolds shares more about the historic achievement and how it informs our understanding of black holes, which are thought to reside at the center of most galaxies.
