Buster Machine 3 is a superweapon developed during the war with the Space Monsters and designed to destroy the center of the galaxy. Also known as the "Black Hole Bomb", it is a gigantic bomb formed by compressing the planet Jupiter into a relatively tiny space and then triggering a chain reaction to create a black hole. Upon activation, it failed to detonate, forcing Noriko Takaya and Kazumi Amano to enter it in Gunbuster, rip out one of the mecha's power cores, and use it to start the reaction. This resulted in the two being left alone in space and isolated from humanity for 12,000 years.
