Okay guys, I need help from someone nerdier than I am in deciphering this NASA press release:
NASA to Announce Success of Long Galactic Hunt
WASHINGTON -- NASA has scheduled a media teleconference Wednesday, May 14, at 1 p.m. EDT, to announce the discovery of an object in our Galaxy astronomers have been hunting for more than 50 years. This finding was made by combining data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory with ground-based observations.
This is driving me crazy. (Seriously, if you figure it out, and know my phone number, send me a frigging text, cause I'm leaving my desk for the day.) All I can think of is the black hole at the center of the galaxy, since dark matter isn't so much an object. Wonkette says space monster. (Keith and Esmerelda??!) Well?
