Astronomy.com? Always worth a visit.
Go there! Go there now! But first a word regarding this quote,

“The Milky Way’s own supermassive black hole weighs nearly 4 million times more than our Sun.”

That is, if we were comparatively measuring the weight of our galaxy’s supermassive black hole to our sun, here on earth.


Okay, just wanted to clear that up. Now go have fun at Astronomy.com.*

*True, despite a universe obscenely suffused with probabilities (an embarrassment of riches, really), it will likely never happen, but I feel the risk warrants the caution.
