Wednesday we get our first image of a black hole

Let’s shed a tear for this momentous event. Carl Sagan would be proud.


#3

Maybe we’ll get a glimpse of Chris Cornell!


#4

If light can’t escape it, how can we get a picture?


#5

With a Black Light, duh!


#6

How do you like the night sky now that you are back home?


#7

I LOVE it!! It’s like my old friend is back


#8

By pulling in all the nearby light the image gives a 3-D look, I think it looks like an out-of-focus Krispy Kreme donut.


#9

Might want to check that hemorrhoid… might have flared up a bit there


#10

The image looks kind of fuzzy, was it photographed with the Hubble Space Telescope?

I am just glad that it was a “normal” person making all this happen.


#13

They are going to add even more telescopes to this project, even one or more stationed in space.

Far out!

#16

But not me, I’m smarter than that, I worked it out.

#18

Technically (since I am a bit of a scientist myself) the BH is not 6.5 billion times the SIZE of our sun, it’s 6.5 billion times the MASS of it.

Many people are telling me this.
