Description:

This NOVA television broadcast discusses black holes and presents new research indicating that a supermassive black hole may lurk at the center of our own galaxy. Features include interviews with researchers who explain the basics of black holes and reveal why they think the Milky Way may harbor a gigantic black hole at its center, and audio clips of physicists and astronomers describing their ideas about black holes. A slide show explains the process by which particularly massive stars consume their nuclear fuel, explode in a supernova, and collapse to an unimaginably dense point called a singularity. There is also a program preview and transcript, as well as an interactive catalog of other astronomical objects.
