Galactic Center Research

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The center of the Milky Way is the only galactic nucleus that can be observed at resolutions down to a few light hours or even minutes. The Galactic center (GC) offers thus unique insights into the properties of a supermassive black hole and its interaction with the interstellar medium and stars in its environment. The GC is one of the main targets of the work group around Prof. Andreas Eckart.
