ESO’s exquisitely sensitive GRAVITY instrument has added further evidence to the long-standing assumption that a supermassive black hole lurks in the centre of the Milky Way. New observations of Sagittarius A show clumps of gas swirling around at about 30% of the speed of light on a circular orbit just outside a four million solar mass black hole.

So they have been hypothesizing, all these years, about something they have never actually seen, for all these years?  Sounds about right for our scientific communities, around the globe.  Lots of them also believe in climate change too.  LOL

 

How can anyone NOT believe in climate change ?  Climate has been changing forever, if there is one thing you can be sure of, it is that the climate is changing.

 

What is driving the changes and how it will change in the future, those are the questions... not IF it is changing.  Are human activities causing climate change ?  If so, by how much, and in what ways ??

OMG, I totally forgot about that film but I loved it at the time.  Miss being a kid.

 

Thanks for posting this too!

 

Remember the robot fights where you literally saw the fishing wire holding them up?

The past 60 years have been a great time to be alive for us baby boomers. We got to see the first human orbit the earth, the first man human to step on the moon, the first pictures from the surface of Mars, the first close up pictures of the outer planets and now the first image of a black hole. 

 

I forgot about this.
