  • 1. Simulation of a star being attracted by a Black Hole
  • 2. This computer-simulated image shows gas from a star that is ripped apart by tidal forces as it falls into a black hole. Some of the gas also is being ejected at high speeds into space.
  • 3. An artist's drawing a black hole named Cygnus X-1. It formed when a large star caved in. This black hole pulls matter from blue star beside it.
  • 4. An artist's drawing shows the current view of the Milky Way galaxy. Scientific evidence shows that in the center of the Milky Way is a supermassive black hole.
  • 5. Sagittarius A* is the black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
  • 6. This image of Sagittarius A in the center of the Milky Way galaxy was taken by the Chandra X-ray Observatory.
  • 7. . This beautiful object ‘s name is: G292.0+1.8. But don’t let that astronomical jargon throw you, you’re looking at a supernova remnant, captured by NASA’s Chandra X-Ray Observatory and ground-based observatories. It’s considered a textbook example of what remains after a massive star blows itself apart as a supernova
