In this episode, our favorite exoplanet hunting space telescope, known as TESS, has managed to capture a black hole tearing a star apart. Not only is TESS finding worlds around other stars, but it’s keeping a vigilant eye on the rest of the galaxy to find things just like this. According to NASA, capturing this event is hard, it only happens once every ten to a hundred thousand years in our galaxy.
