Supermassive Black Hole



So what does a supermassive black hole sound like when put to music? The British rock group MUSE decided to broach this subject with their 2006 tune of the same name (see inset video).

The Physics Groupie has some scientific scuttlebutt that says the UCLA Galactic Center team plays the tune when on location at the Waimea control center for the 10-meter Keck telescope on the Big Island of Hawaii. Nice way to get in the mood for gazing at the monster lurking at the heart of the Milky Way!
