That poor gas cloud.

Who's going to tell his family? How is little Billy going to grow up without a father?

It's not a black hole you fools. The collectors are harvesting the gas for some unknown reason.

A music video reaching one billion views on a video sharing web site: END OF THE WORLD!

A gas cloud interacting with a black hole, to which this has never been seen before and the results are not verified: Fun show :3

I misread that, I thought it said that we'd get ripped apart.

Too bad it's a ******* 30+ year process and we will barely notice it happening, if we notice it at all, lol.

You mean it already got sucked like a million years ago and we're just going to see the light of that happening.

You do realize that this is going to be an extremely slow process. You will be better off checking back months, perhaps years, after the event begins to see anything noteworthy.

So, will it impact earth?

For those who want it. I can't find a rough date other than mid-2013

Yes i'm monitoring this upload because i want to

Anyways, you're 100% correct with what you're saying. I'm just going to have to add something in. Supermassive black holes are not the only thing keeping together galaxies. Simulations show that the gravity of one black hole in the middle of a galaxy is simply not enough. This is where "Dark matter" and "Dark energy" come in. They are called dark because we cannot see them in an orthodox way. There is little know about both of these things, except that they are unable to be observed directly, we can only observe their effects. Dark matter is pretty much the anti form of matter. When combined with regular matter it creates a larger amount of energy than anything we can achieve by nuclear fusion. Dark energy is the force that allows the universe to expand and keep expanding. They make up most of our universe. Galaxies are held together by a large amount of these dark forces, along with gravity from black holes.

Anyways TL;DR Dark matter & energy play a key part of keeping galaxies together

Everything said by foromil is also correct as well.

To observers outside the event horizon, it takes nearly forever to observe the gas cloud fully crossing it.

We won't see it "torn apart" (spaghettification), we'll see it do some weird orbiting **** and light warping, then it'll freeze.

I hope it's pretty
