    Sounds like a Lovecraft story.

    I like how the title of science articles never match the content, most likely because whoever wrote the title was too stupid to understand what the scientist was saying to him.

    "The star is falling into a gigantic black hole in the center of a distant galaxy that lies 3.9 billion light-years away in the direction of the constellation Draco. As the remains of the star get pulled in, it releases blips of light about every 200 seconds, with occasional lags."

    Frankly I think the star is sending out a final message to it's brethren, something like "So long, and thanks for all the fish", but different.

    Yeah, because a person would just walk off getting sucked into and crushed by the most powerful gravity well in the universe.

    Since nobody has ever seen a black hole and there is a star getting sucked into it what does that look like? Does the star illuminate a finite point in space?

    The name black hole means exactly what it says on the tin. You can't see past the event horizon. You'd see gas floating around a point, getting really hot, then disappearing.

    I'd be shooting two guns at the same time into the air as I get sucked in.
