Simulation of gas cloud approaching the black hole at the centre of the Milky Way (fulldome)

Loading player...

A fulldome (fish-eye) view showing a simulation of the future behaviour of a gas cloud that has been observed approaching the supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way. This is the first time ever that the approach of such a doomed cloud to a supermassive black hole has been observed and it is expected to break up completely during 2013.
