Astronomers are closing in on one of the most destructive objects in the universe - a supermassive black hole - and it's hiding right in the center of our own galaxy. Eventually, it will blast jets of radiation millions of miles into space, incinerating everything in its neighborhood, including planet Earth. For a long time, black holes were dismissed as pure science fiction. Even Albert Einstein could not bring himself to accept them, despite pioneering the theory of relativity that predicted their existence. But recently, scientists have found convincing evidence that black holes are not only real but are crucial to the life and death of galaxies everywhere in the cosmos. From the explosive birth of a black hole to its cannibalistic death throes, NOVA investigates one of the universe's darkest secrets. With striking special effects, Monster of the Milky Way takes viewers on a scientifically accurate voyage into the belly of a supermassive black hole.
