I highly doubt it. If that black hole was in the vicinity of Casseopia A. Even at 1 million mph we wouldn`t get there for a very long time. Considering if the black hole was near the closest star Alpha Centari which is 4.7 light years. At 1 million mph it would take about 3100 years to reach it. This is just an estimate but good enough....needless to say it will be a while before we get there if it exists at all, at least you`ll be dead already by then. Now consider that the center of the galaxy is about 45,000 light-years away.... It`s not going to happen soon, if it`s going to happen at all. Soon, as in a few thousand to million years
