Black hole radio jet pointed directly at Earth

Astronomers have discovered that a radio jet from the supermassive black hole at the heart of the Milky Way could be pointed almost directly towards the Earth.
By incorporating the world's most powerful telescope, Alma, into an array of sky-scanning antennae, astronomers have managed to pinpoint the radio emission to a smaller region of space than previously thought.
The Alma telescope - short for Atacama Large Millimetre Array - promises to probe deeper into space than ever before, and is made up of 50 antennae arranged over a 10km (6.2mile) radius.
