I remember, when DBSK debuted with their “Hug” single and it makes me feel so… old. Was it really TEN YEARS AGO?!

Peer into a Simulated Black Hole
The folks at NASA put together this awesome supercomputer simulation of the inner regions surrounding a black hole.
Stellar gas is accelerated to near-light-speed thanks to the incredible draw of the black hole’s gravity. You know how a hot iron bar will glow red? That’s emission in the visible and infrared regions of light. Gas surrounding a black hole gets so hot that it emits light with MUCH higher energy: X-rays!
Near the center, the event horizon marks where nothing, not even x-rays, can escape the pull of gravity. That’s the dark disk in the center.
I think this is about as close as I ever want to get to a black hole.
