What is the Kerr parametre of Milky Way nucleus?
Where does the axis of Milky Way nucleus point?
What is the angle between the equator of the nucleus and the outer edge of the accretion disc? And where does the axis of the outer edge of the accretion disc point?

Good questions. Answers: TBD. Not much of an accretion disk currently.

Apparently the Milky Way nucleus spins very little or not at all. (http://arxiv.org/abs/1011.2770)
