Supercomputer Visualizes Action At Milky Way’s Center

These gifs show the orbits of stars around a black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy. The orbits helped to uncover the existence of the black hole, which sits around 25,000 light years away from Earth and is estimated to have 4 million times the mass of our sun. The gifs were created from a 3-D visualization made by the University of Illinois National Center for Supercomputing using observations taken by telescopes at the W. M. Keck Observatory between 1995 and 2012.

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
  5. It's super easy, so it won't take more than a minute.
