An ALMA image of the center of the Milky Way galaxy revealing 11 young protostars within about 3 light-years of our galaxy's supermassive black hole. The lines indicate the direction of the bipolar lobes created by high-velocity jets from the protostars. The star indicates the location of Sagittarius A*, the 4 million solar mass supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy.
