Default First Ever Pic of a Black Hole

Pretty ground-breaking moment in science.

Working together as a 'virtual telescope,' observatories around the world produce first direct images of a black hole

It IS fascinating..

I'm sorry, but I can't help but be reminded of this long-ago story of pure and blatant stupidity...

NAACP Urges Hallmark to Pull 'Racist' Card From Shelves

Quote:
A space-themed, talking Hallmark graduation card is being pulled from store shelves because of the cardís reference to a black hole.

But members of the Los Angeles NAACP say the message sounds like "black whore" in the card's audio recording. That's how they hear it, and they say it's racist, KABC-TV in Los Angeles reported.

"That was very demeaning to African-American women when it made reference to African-American women as whores, and at the end it says 'watch your back,'" said Leon Jenkins of the Los Angeles NAACP.

The Hallmark card reads, "Hey world, we are officially putting you on notice," before playfully touting the ambitious future of the new graduate.

Characters known as "Hoops" and "Yoyo" banter on: "And you black holes, you are so ominous. Watch your back."

God forbid that some enterprising scientist figures out how to make something useful to mankind out of nothing but a hole.

because they have historically been described as very dangerous to fool with. yes you would definitely back drilling into the inner core of the earth if it were found to produce gold.

If it was in the preview of any human to not sin, Christ would not have had to die for us. All humans sin. You can see most of mine right away. I dare not wonder at the hidden sins of others who cast stones so easily.
