At the heart of the Milky Way dwells one of the most destructive forces in the universe - a super-massive black hole that appears to have been hiding in plain sight for as long as man has explored the stars. Recently, scientists have concluded that when the great void falls into its cannibalistic demise, jets of radiation will be projected millions of miles into surrounding space incinerating everything, including planet Earth, in its path. Join Nova as the popular PBS science program invites viewers to explore one of the cosmos' deepest, darkest secrets. Striking special effects and expert science speculations combines to take the viewer directly into the belly of the beast while speculating just when the remarkable black hole will erupt and destroy the entire Milky Way galaxy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
