Chaotic orbits in axisymmetric systems have the capacity to come arbitrarily close to the centre of the potential – if this system hosts a massive black hole a close passage can lead to the orbiting body disrupting, causing high energy observable phenomena – in this talk i’ll show which kinds of orbit can manage this feat, how they do it, and the timescale over which we can expect an object to be disrupted
