Its not the image itself that is impressive, but all the science it took just to be able to get the image that is impressive.
@SpankieMcGee , that image actually takes up 5 petabytes of data collected from high powered telescopes from around the world. That image is absolutely groundbreaking and proves it is no longer theoretical.
Eye of Sauron, change my mind
@mycatsanahole, Xbox red ring of death, change my mind
@Rookie Mistake, my ass after taco bell, change my mind
@Nicol Bolas, spaghettio, change my mind
@Nicol Bolas, hey it’s your ass, quit eating Taco Bell you masochist
To be fair this is a super zoomed in tiny portion of the actual photo
I see this black hole and think of the collector base past the Omega 4 relay of mass effect 2
@InsaneWorm, omg you're right
Every headline promoting this: "Woman! Woman woman woman woman! WOOOOMMMMAAAANNN!"
Reality: there were nearly 200 people, both male and female, using eight different radio telescopes around the world to create the composite image.
So are black holes in the category of Bigfoot a d Loch Ness? A lot of people believe they exist, but the only hard evidence is a blurry photo?
@fettman1138, nope. Have you seen the actual photo? This one part is a very zoomed in portion used because it’s memeable
@fettman1138, you understand though that this object is around 50 million light years away... where as big foot and nessie are meant to be maybe a couple of hundred feet. I know the difference is subtle. I hope you can appreciate it.
