DOOMED.jpg

This an artist's Illustration of the RX J1242-11 system depicting how the catastrophic destruction of a star that wandered too close to a supermassive black hole may have occurred. A close encounter with another star put the doomed star (orange circle) on a path that took it near a supermassive black hole. The enormous gravity of the giant black hole stretched the star until it was torn apart. Because of the momentum and energy of the accretion process, only a few percent of the disrupted star's mass (indicated by the white stream) was swallowed by the black hole, while the rest of was flung away into the surrounding galaxy.

This photo sent chills down my spine.

But aside from that, I couldn't help thinking that you were trying to create another Asteroid 2003 QQ47 post. There. I said it. Let the spam gates be opened.

I THINK THAT IT HAS A CHANCE OF SUCKING US IN. I KNOW THIS WILL SOUND STUPID FROM A 14 YEAR OLD BUT I THINK WE CAN DEFLECT IT
