Flight from the Earth to the Milky Way Black Hole

This artist's impression fulldome video shows a hypothetical super-luminous flight from the Earth to the Black Hole in the centre of the Milky Way. At the end of the clip, the orbits of stars close to the supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way are seen. The data for these orbits have been measured over 26 years by ESO's telescopes by an international team led by Reinhard Genzel of the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics (MPE) in Garching, Germany, in conjunction with collaborators around the world.
