What’s at the center of our galaxy?

At the center of our galaxy lies a supermassive black hole. It’s a region of space where gravity is so strong nothing can escape it, not even light. While the name supermassive might make it seem like these things are easy to spot — they’re really not.

The gravity of a black hole can warp the fabric of space itself, such that light passing close to the black hole will follow a curved path around it. Photo: Caltech-IPAC

What it’s like when black holes collide

Some nine billion light years away, a pair of black holes are on a collision course. It’s a cosmic waltz that could come to an end in 10,000 years which will shake space and time. It’s now the second possible observation of two massive black holes colliding — and scientists are eager to watch the destruction.
