Hohum. Another week, another cosmic revelation that challenges conventional thought. This time? The Hubble telescope has found a supermassive black hole that shouldn’t exist.
Not cool, city-sized star. While I appreciate an ultra-dense neutron star the size of Manhattan, I’d also like us to be able to check out our own black hole.
Yo! We got it, friends. The first image of a black hole. Space continues to be metal as fuck, and we continue to plunder its secrets.
Next year, astronomers are going to attempt to take the first picture of a black hole. Like, ever. Insert all the easy jokes, then pray they pull it off.
Black Holes are, simply put, nothing to fuck with. So you can imagine the terror of a wandering Black Hole, that’s meandering about in the fucking cosmos. A Black Hole (capitalized intentionally, to shock and awe) that is 100,000 times the mass of our star.
Bask in the destructive beauty of the cosmos. We go about our daily lives not really contemplating the sheer magnitude of the fury that the Universe can unleash. Right here is a black hole devouring the shit out of a star.
