EurekAlert has various items from Chandra this week. Two look faintly like
they might excite Robert Bradbury: both the Milky Way's and Andromeda's
core superholes look too faint or small. Maybe they're being used/cloaked
by M-Brains. (But if so, why not use the lot?)

Chandra finds a 'cool'
black hole at the heart of
the Andromeda Galaxy
In its first look at the Andromeda
Galaxy (M31), NASA's Chandra
X-ray Observatory has found that
the gas funneling into a
supermassive black hole in the
heart of this galaxy is a "cool"
million degrees. This unexpected
result adds one more quirk to the
strange behavior previously
observed at the center of M31.
