Watch a sun get destroyed by a black hole5/3/2012
No, you didn't just drop a tab of LSD (we hope). You're just watching a NASA simulation of a star just like our very own sun getting ripped apart by a supermassive black hole weighing millions of times more than the poor star. You probably need to be an astrophysicist to comprehend the specifics of how this works, but basically the blue dot represents the black hole's location. You get to watch as "some of the stellar debris falls into the black hole and some of it is ejected into space at high speeds." The scariest bit is that by the end, there's no more sun -- an event NASA describes as "stellar homicide."
Are you nervous this could happen to our sun?
