Unimaginably huge black hole


Black hole

Just had to repost this epic first picture of the almost unimaginably huge black hole at the centre of our own Milky Way Galaxy. Stephen Hawking would love it !

It seems most spiral galaxies have a central supermassive black hole – which helps to stop the galaxies falling apart as they rotate. But how did they get there ?

Thanks David Eicher – and congratulations Derek Ward Thompson !!! And to the entire team who worked so hard to pull off this scoop !!
