Can find the scientific paper Here

"A team of researchers from Harvard and MIT announced at the 215th meeting of the American Astronomical Society a new theoretical model of how the super-massive black hole at the center of the Milky Way consumes gas from surrounding star clusters, based on a million seconds of observation by the orbital Chandra X-ray telescope. Astronomers had previously believed that the object, known as Sagittarius A-star consumed only around one percent of the gases it stripped from the star clusters around it, but the new model reduces its consumption to 0.01 percent two orders of magnitude difference."
