We've discovered an increasing amount of information about these mysterious celestial objects since NASA unveiled the first image of a black hole in 2019. Despite this, a lot of mysteries surround them because of their peculiar physics. Consider what it would appear like to fly into a black hole. Although it's difficult to say for sure, NASA has tried to provide an explanation. Based on the current data available, the agency's Goddard Space Flight Center unveiled two immersive visualisations. 

Astrophysicist Jeremy Schnittman of the Goddard Space Flight Center says, "People often ask about this, and simulating these difficult-to-imagine processes helps me connect the mathematics of relativity to actual consequences in the real Universe." "Therefore, I created two simulations: one in which a camera, acting as a surrogate for a fearless astronaut, narrowly avoids the event horizon and rockets back out, and another in which it crosses the boundary and meets its demise."

We should examine the properties of black holes in order to gain a deeper understanding of what the video portrays. They are, by definition, areas of spacetime where gravity is so great that not even light can have sufficient energy to escape from it. As depicted in the videos, the event horizon is the point at which there is no way out. Einstein's Theory of Relativity, which holds that a sufficiently compact mass can distort spacetime to form a black hole, is referenced in the warped images.

It was also a feat to create these 360-degree visualisations. Schmidt collaborated with scientist Brian Powell to construct this theoretical supermassive black hole, which has a mass of 4.3 million times that of the Sun and is comparable to the centre of the Milky Way. The project produced roughly 10 terabytes of data using the NASA Center for Climate Simulation's Discover supercomputer. On a normal laptop, processing something this size would take over ten years; however, on this supercomputer, using only 0.3% of Discover's 129,000 processors, it only took around five days.
