Coming from the age of incandescent lightbulbs and red spectrum flashlights I say, I've seen this before as a remnant fractal I believe...

Icarus, did you fly too high?

My non-scientific mind says "how do you take a picture of a blackhole, if a blackhole 'sucks in' all light?"

We've imaged a Black Hole. Yet at the same time 6.5 million Americans believe the Earth is flat. The latter is not so much an issue of science, but rather a mental health issue. It cannot end well and will be tied to other types of societal decay.

I am offended that they tied the Flat Earthers to the "paranormal." Rest easy, we can still all have our sandsquatches, ghosts and UFOs, but the Earth is an oblate spheroid dammit!

Public Service Announcement over.

Some astronomers calculate that there are 100 Million Invisible Black Holes --in our Milky Way Galaxy. No wonder other civilizations have not reached here... space is just too darned dangerous. The odds, it seems, of running into and being swallowed by an invisible black hole is just too great.

They were right about one thing...the damn thing was black.

Which brings to mind the then to prescient Yellow Submarine and the "sea of holes"...
