ESOcast 39: A Black Hole’s Dinner is Fast Approaching
This ESOcast describes how astronomers using ESO’s Very Large Telescope have discovered a gas cloud with several times the mass of the Earth accelerating fast towards the black hole at the centre of the Milky Way. This is the first time ever that the approach of such a doomed cloud to a supermassive black hole has been observed. More information: http://www.eso.org/public/videos/eso1151a/
