A binary black hole system, viewed edge-on. This pair of extremely dense objects twists and warps spacetime as the two black holes spiral in toward one another.

This might be just a simulation of two merging black holes, but it's still insane to look at.

This Black Hole GIF Is Utterly Mesmerizing

Black holes are sometimes described as "giant vacuum cleaners in the sky", sucking in everything around them, but this description is highly inaccurate... so a better visualization would be that of a whirlpool or tornado curling like water ... The creators Spirit Science videos just released a new video describing Nassim Haramein's work on black holes and how to properly visualize the structure of the vacuum: (post by Jamie Janover)

Scientists May Get Best View Yet of a Black Hole in Action BY ADAM MANN 03.14.14 It’s the cosmic event of the year. Right now, telescopes all over the world are turning to our galaxy’s center, where for the first time ever they may have a front-row look at a supermassive black hole consuming a gas cloud.

Earlier this week something happened to make Japan’s brand new black hole satellite suddenly, mysteriously lose all contact with Earth. Now, we have video of it spinning wildly in space—and JAXA has also received a few odd, new messages.
