’Strange objects’ found near Milky Way supermassive black hole

Scientists reported the discovery of ’strange objects’ near the supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way. Astronomers from UCLA’s Galactic Centre Orbits Initiative said the objects ’look like gas and behave like stars’. While two of the so called ’G sources’ were discovered earlier, astronomers have now detected four more, suggesting these are part of a new class of cosmic phenomena.

Interesting that stars can be spaghettified when near a super-massive black hole. In one of the articles it mentions that one set was a pair of massive stars that merged; I'm mildly curious if this will result in the merged star being large enough to go supernova next to the black hole, and if so what the results will be. But not that curious to be near when it happens. ;)
