    Is matter falling into the massive black hole at the center of the Milky Way or being ejected from it? No one knows for sure, but a UC Santa Barbara astrophysicist is searching for an answer.

  • Newly discovered dust, which forms a cool wind streaming outward from the black hole, playa an important role in the complex relationship between the black hole and its environment.
