Black Hole Wind. A composite x-ray/optical image of the active NGC 1068 galaxy reveals an enormous plume of hot gas emanating from the supermassive black hole at the galaxy's center. Scientists think the shape and speed of the plume, which moves at about 1 million miles an hour, are caused by the funneling effect of a doughnut-shaped ring of cooler gas and dust that surrounds the black hole.

galaxy! Wow this is the stunning beauty that which we actually be - and then we question our worth???

Physics is the best kind of science because you don't have to grow up and stop being enthralled by all the cool stuff out there. Child-like wonder is the best tool in the scientist's arsenal.

No Escape: Dive Into a Black Hole (Infographic) by Karl Tate - When matter is compressed beyond a certain density, a black hole is created. It is called black because no light can escape from it. Some black holes are the tombstones of what were once massive stars. An enormous black hole is thought to lurk at the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
