The gravitational capture of a compact object by a supermassive black hole is the best probe of strong gravity we have thought of. I will present recent results that predict that such gravitational captures can be detected in the future with space-borne detectors right at our Galactic Centre with extreme signal-to-noise ratios and extremely large mass ratios, via the capture of sub-stellar objects. 

Also, I will show that it is likely that current ground-based detectors such as LIGO and Virgo already have buried in their data captures of intermediate-mass ratios.
