Check This Out, A Hole

Black hole, sun, Won’t you come, And wash away the rain, Black hole, sun, Won’t you come, Won’t you come, Won’t you come? Black Hole: “Dude, I’m right here.” Indeed, thanks to some remarkable work by scientists (with the help of a global network of telescopes), humans are getting their first look at a photo of a black hole. From Sheperd Doeleman, director of the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration: “We have seen what we thought was unseeable.” After spending the last 24 months staring in the abyss of an ethical black hole, it’s nice to see a regular one (and one that suggests, contrary to popular opinion, that science still exists). Next, researchers should use the network of telescopes to try to find a light at the end of the tunnel. (Hopefully, unlike the photographed black hole, that won’t be 55 million light-years away.)

+ Speaking of seeing what we thought was unseeable, here’s a look at 16 Jaw-Dropping Pictures From Inside Japan’s Penis Festival.
