Yesterday, you may have thought it was a windy day on earth.  Gusts were about 35 miles per hour, and if you were driving on the hightway they may have felt even stronger.  NASA was looking at another wind, and this one makes even the strongest winds ever recorded on earth pale in comparison.  They say that the wind spiraling around this black hole is traveling at twenty million miles per hour, or about three percent the speed of light!  Check out the whole story on their website:  http://chandra.si.edu/photo/2012/igr/
