Now I get it. This is what happened to me this morning. I woke up feeling, you know, engulfed or engulped by something bigger than myself. I was feeling very low-mass last night.

The European Space Agency has witnessed a super massive black hole at the centre of a galaxy “eat” a “low-mass” object (“low-mass” in this case being something between a Jupiter-sized planet and a brown-dwarf star), saying the giant stellar phenomenon ”woke up” to gulp down the matter.
