What a lovely destination, Lindal!

This animated zoom-in is of Sagittarius A*, or at least the indirect evidence for it. At the end is a seven year time lapse showing the proper motion of a gas cloud and some stars, which allowed scientists to calculate the mass and distribution of the thing that was tugging all that stuff around... a supermassive black hole.

Awwwww, c’mon Par. It’s just a little supermassive black hole. I promise I’ll put everything away when I’m done annihilating it.

Pretty please?

Don't listen to her Par. Remember what happened last time?

And we all know what happens after that.

...mails you a very flat supermassive black hole in an official looking bubble envelope marked "You're a winner!"

I am nothing if not persistent. And I'm waiting for you to say you don't have a mailbox.

Dammit Love. You just had to go blab it. Maddy isn't gonna set me on fire now, thanks to you.

I just wanted to be all warm and toasty again. 🔥

...sends you a marshmallow costume, a huge stick, and a bonfire

...with a supermassive black hole in it.
