Fermi Bubbles Are Burps from a Star-Eating Black Hole | Today's Science. The following story may be recalled from almost a year ago, if only because of the eye-catching illustration: NASA’s Fermi Telescope Finds Giant Structure in our Galaxy NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has unveiled a previously unseen structure centered in the Milky Way.

The feature spans 50,000 light-years and may be the remnant of an eruption from a supersized black hole at the center of our galaxy. “What we see are two gamma-ray-emitting bubbles that extend 25,000 light-years north and south of the galactic center,” said Doug Finkbeiner, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Mass., who first recognized the feature.

We test our quantum More The von Neumann architecture for a classical computer comprises a central processing unit and a memory holding instructions and data. We demonstrate a quantum central processing unit that exchanges data with a quantum random-access memory integrated on a chip, with instructions stored on a classical computer. We test our quantum machine by executing codes that involve seven quantum elements: Two superconducting qubits coupled through a quantum bus, two quantum memories, and two zeroing registers.
