In the Hole

A team of scientists at the University of Colorado, Boulder have created a visual simulation of what it might look like to fall into a black hole. It’s based on a computer model of the general theory of relativity, and the virtual black hole is set to have about five million times the mass of the sun—about the mass of the black hole at the center of our galaxy. Not pictured: the load you would have dropped in your space pants. For more info about what you’re seeing, click over to NewScientist.
