Envisioning the next decade of Galactic Center science: a laboratory for the study of the physics and astrophysics of supermassive black holes
We describe several research questions driving the next decade of Galactic center science. Is General Relativity (GR) the correct description for supermassive black holes? What is the nature of star formation in the GC? How do stars and compact objects dynamically interact with the SMBH? What physical processes drive gas accretion onto Sgr A*?
