When it comes to space related things, I’m there!
I love all things space, like stars, planets, and aliens (’cause they have to be out there, somewhere). I’m easily impressed by pictures of other worlds — utterly awe-struck is probably the best way to put it. I find our planet not being the only planet/body an absolutely wonderful thing.
What I would really, really love is to see one of these planets they keep finding in a faraway galaxy that’s not an artists impression. One day, I hope. One day soon, because…
THEY’VE TAKEN A PICTURE OF A BLACK HOLE!
When I read at lunchtime that astronomers have actually managed this I kind’a creamed my pants.
A BLACK HOLE!
Like OMG — super amazing!
I couldn’t wait to get home and see it.
Well, I’m home now.
I was expecting a little more than a burning anus.
I had in my minds eye a gloriously clear image, but this is certainly better than an artists impression.
One day, they’ll find a way to take HD pictures of 40 billion km wide black holes that live in a galaxy 500 million trillion km away.
But with my feels for the sore anus put aside, OMG SO BLOODY AMAZING!
It’s a black hole!
