This is a NASA simulation of star similar to our sun, being torn apart by a black hole [represented by the blue dot] that weighs millions times more than the star itself. A very striking image, that shows the breathtaking influence of black holes on imaginably small mass found commonly through out the universe.
‘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.”’ [x]
