Probing a Supermassive Black Hole
by Bruce Dorminey
How do you probe a supermassive black hole? Take a look at the pulsars  that orbit it. These rapidly spinning neutron stars flash regular radio  pulses, and in an upcoming issue of The Astrophysical Journal astronomers say that the timing of such pulses could        provide a new understanding of the 4 million solar mass black hole at the center of the Milky Way.         Scientists  have speculated that physics as we know it could break down in the  presence of  such a strong gravitational force.
If         that’s the case, any flashes from nearby pulsars would appear to  speed up or slow down when viewed from Earth, with their clocklike  arrival times         running early or late and likely dependent on where their orbits  were in relation to the black hole. In the process, the astronomers  also hope to         determine Sagittarius A*’s spin rate and true mass down to an  accuracy of about 1 part in a million. First, though, they have to find  pulsars close         enough to this gravitational monstrosity to be useful. And  that’s not expected to happen until the Square Kilometer Array comes  online early next         decade.

 (via Review of the year: the cutest animal pictures of 2011 - Telegraph ~ A three-month-old polar bear cub presses his paw and nose against the glass as he encounters snow for the first time, at Aalborg Zoo in Denmark. A zoo spokesman said: ”The cub is having a grand old time enjoying the snow. At just three months old the cub spends a lot of time playing with mom and biting everything it finds interesting, particularly mom’s paws.”
