Submission + - Gas Cloud Gets Ripped Apart by Black Hole at Center of the Milky Way in Real Tim (spaceindustrynews.com)

An anonymous reader writes: New observations from ESO’s Very Large Telescope show for the first time a gas cloud being ripped apart by the supermassive black hole at the centre of the galaxy. The cloud is now so stretched that its front part has passed the closest point and is travelling away from the black hole at more than 10 million km/h, whilst the tail is still falling towards it.
