NASA have simulated and visualised the view of an astronaut entering the event horizon of a supermassive black hole with 4.3 million times the mass of our Sun, just like the behemoth at the center of our Milky Way galaxy.

Using the Discover supercomputer at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation, the project generated around 10 TB of data, took approx. 5 days to run (compared with over a decade on standard laptop) on just 0.3% of Discover’s 129,000 processors.
