Video News Release: A Black Hole’s Dinner is Fast Approaching – B-roll

Astronomers using ESO’s Very Large Telescope have discovered a gas cloud with several times the mass of the Earth accelerating 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. These video statements from Prof. Reinhard Genzel and Dr. Stefan Gillessen of the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, Garching, Germany, discuss the new work and its importance. The statements are in both English and German.
