A Supermassive Black Hole Is Heading Earth’s Way At 110 Km Per Second

There is a massive black hole with millions of times more mass than our sun is plunging towards Earth and will one day annihilate life as we know it. This particular black hole is coming towards us at 110 kilometers per second and is at the center of the Great Andromeda Galaxy – the Milky Way’s closest and much larger neighbor.

At the center of the most known galaxies, there exist a supermassive black hole which stars spin around and helps keep everything in formation. But such is the powerful gravitational pull of the Milky Way and Andromeda that they are being drawn toward each other and will one day crash.
Fraser Cain, publisher of space website Universe Today, wrote for Phys.org
“There’s a black hole at the centre of the Milky Way. And not just any black hole, it’s a supermassive black hole with more than 4.1 million times the mass of the Sun. It’s right over there, in the direction of the Sagittarius constellation. Located just 26,000 light-years away. And as we speak, it’s in the process of tearing apart entire stars and star systems, occasionally consuming them, adding to its mass like a voracious shark.”

Due to the size of Andromeda however, there is only going to be one winner when it smashes into the Milky Way. But, as Andromeda is 2.5 million light years away, it will take over four billion years to reach us, so we are safe for now.

Mr Cain said:

“Panic will happen when the Milky Way collides with Andromeda in about 4 billion years. Suddenly, you’ll have two whole clouds of stars interacting in all kinds of ways, like an unstable blended family. Stars that would have been safe will careen past other stars and be deflected down into the maw of either of the two supermassive black holes on hand. Andromeda’s black hole could be 100 million times the mass of the Sun, so it’s a bigger target for stars with a death wish.”


  1. muy confusioso pero yo no perro

  2. Who cares if its fake or not...the sun will be dead before that.

  3. Nobody cares. You live you die. End of story.

  4. ��??before or after my funeral?,

  5. Live life to the best , system, star s an people come an go .Peace

  6. So...we will never know what happens 4 billion years from now..freaking ridiculous that we could even care about something like that..such a long ways away. People may not even carry life into those times. A world will be way different in just a few hundred years..let alone a billion!

  8. why are people pointing out the fact that this is fake? it's kinda obvious. i'm pretty sure this was made as a joke, so don't go shouting at your screen over some guy trying to get a giggle.

    1. plus, it might be true. i mean, the andromeda galaxy IS coming so....
