Black hole passing by Earth

Artistic impression of an imaginary black hole passing by Earth and its gravity, destroying our planet. The Earth would stand no chance if it encountered a rogue black hole; the black hole’s tidal forces would easily rip the planet apart.

The image will feature in the ESO Supernova exhibition "The living Universe".
