Black Hole in the Milky Way
In this video from the European Southern Observatory, we go to the centre of the Milky Way to investigate a supermassive black hole. Two scientists describe a 16-year long study, which used several of ESO’s flagship telescopes, to produce the most detailed view ever of the surroundings of the monster lurking at our Galaxy’s heart. Find out how the hidden secrets of this tumultuous region were unravelled.
