Steven highlights this charming submission written over at Digg. From the article:

In contrast, the Milky Way’s center shows little activity. But apparently, according to experts at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, it wasn’t always so quiet. New evidence of ghostly gamma-ray beams suggests that the Milky Way’s central black hole has been much more active in the past.
