Caption

Rosetta orbit around black hole. Computer artwork showing an object (red) orbiting a black hole (yellow) in a rosetta pattern (pink lines). This type of orbit is thought to occur when an object approaches a black hole at a speed that is not fast enough to allow it to escape the black hole's gravitational pull, but is fast enough for it not to be pulled in. The closer it is to the black hole, the faster the object moves.
