Title: Monster Black Hole in Galaxy M84
Url: http://wimedialab.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/ess05.sci.ess.eiu.bla...
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: Black holes are some of the strangest objects in the universe. While the physics of these objects is not understood, and they cannot be seen directly, indirect observations have revealed for certain that black holes do exist. This animation shows an artist's conception of what it might be like to see a super-massive black hole in the center of a spiral galaxy. A background essay and list of discussion questions are also provided.
