Into the Belly of the Gravitational Beast

Today on Far Future Horizons we will embark on a voyage that will take us into the belly of a gravitational beast the –  Supermassive Blackhole.

NOVA Monster of the Milky Way

Astronomers are closing in on the proof they’ve sought for years that one of the most destructive objects in the universe – a super massive black hole – lurks at the center of our own galaxy. Could it flare up and consume our entire galactic neighborhood?

NOVA takes us on a mind-bending investigation into one of the most bizarre corners of cosmological science: black hole research. From event horizon to singularity, 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 an all-devouring beast.

Monster of the Milky Way is available on DVD from and PBS's Online Shop.
