A team of astronomers, led by John-Paice who is a student at Pune-based IUCAA, has created a high frame-rate movie of a growing black-hole system at a level of detail never seen before. The black hole system studied is named MAXI J1820+070 and was first discovered in early 2018. About 10,000 light-years-away in our own Milky-Way, it has the mass of about seven suns.
