The image combines 370 images taken by the Chandra X-ray Orbital Observatory, describing the billions of stars and countless black holes in the heart of the Milky Way.

A radio telescope in South Africa contributed to the contrast.

Astronomer Daniel Wang of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst campus, said Friday that he worked for a year on the image during his stay at his home due to the pandemic.

“What we see in the panorama is a disturbed or active ecosystem at the center of our galaxy,” Wang said in an email. There are many remnants of supernovae, black holes, and neutron stars there. Each point or element in the X-ray represents a source of energy, most of it is located in the center.

The high-density, high-energy center of the galaxy is located 26,000 light-years from Earth.

Wang’s work was published in the June issue of the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

Chandra was launched into space in 1999 and orbits the Earth in an elliptical orbit.
