NOVA/ "Monster of the Milky Way"

NOVA/ Monster of the Milky Way

Astronomers believe that one of the most destructive objects in the universeŚa supermassive black holeŚlurks at the center of our own galaxy. Could it flare up and consume our entire galactic neighborhood? Join NOVA on a mind-bending investigation into one of the most bizarre corners of cosmological science: black hole research. The elusive secrets of supermassive black holes are revealed through stunning computer-generated imagery, including an extraordinary simulation of what it might look like to fall into the belly of such a devouring beast.
