A Journey To The Black Hole At The Heart Of The Milky Way Galaxy

A Journey To The Black Hole At The Heart Of The Milky Way Galaxy

It is a video created by the European Southern Observatory (ESO) utilizing 26 years of the telescopic knowledge they’ve collected to supply a journey to the black gap on the middle of the Milky Way galaxy. Some extra data whereas I pop some popcorn: “I thought you hated popcorn.” God, I am grabbing a beer, okay?

This zoom video sequence begins with a broad view of the Milky Way. We then dive into the dusty central area to take a a lot nearer look. There lurks a 4-million photo voltaic mass black gap, surrounded by a swarm of stars orbiting quickly. We first see the celebrities in movement, because of 26 years of knowledge from ESO’s telescopes. We then see an excellent nearer view of one of many stars, often called S2, passing very near the black gap in Could 2018. The last half reveals a simulation of the motions of the celebrities.

Man, how cool would really be to journey the ~26,000 mild years to the middle of the galaxy THEN DIVE RIGHT IN THAT BLACK HOLE.? Now that is the way you get your identify within the historical past books (or the longer term books, who is aware of!). And picture when you survived — now that is the way you get your named talked about in hushed tones behind your again. ‘Did you see Mr. Blackhole? He is completely different now.’ Proper? What’s up with all these tentacles?

Hold going for the video.

Due to Alan, who agrees the primary one into the black gap wins the race.
