Your link says "The symmetry of the bubbles billowing above and below the galaxy suggests they were formed by an extremely energetic explosion near the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way. The most likely explanation is a flare up in the black hole’s activity as it gobbled up extra nearby material and burped out other particles and radiation. The bubbles could also have been created by an extreme burst in star formation that sent a shock wave across the galactic center. Or possibly, it was a combination of both events."

 

following your link and adding arxiv in the search, which is always a handy thing to do. throws up this more detailed paper https://arxiv.org/ft.../1909.05534.pdf

Our galaxy is no longer creating stars and is pretty much in a dead state.
