The Lounge>Science is Cool....
Fish 09:43 PM 05-21-2012
This is a repository for all cool scientific discussion and fascination. Scientific facts, theories, and overall cool scientific stuff that you'd like to share with others. Stuff that makes you smile and wonder at the amazing shit going on around us, that most people don't notice.

Post pictures, vidoes, stories, or links. Ask questions. Share science.

This is in support of the Penny 4 NASA project. If you enjoy anything you learned from this thread, consider making a donation and signing the petition.

Why should I care?:

Unfortunately, it's just known as Messier 87. A galaxy as opposed to a nebula. Technically a supergiant elliptical galaxy in the constellation Virgo.

Why this black hole image is important to confirmation of the theory of relativity:

If we were able to look at a black hole from different orientations we would be able to see light even from parts of the accretion disc behind the black hole as they are lensed above and below the shadow region pic.twitter.com/uDZ0USiy4q

The black hole in that image:

1. is large in diameter than our entire solar system, and

2. weighs more than our entire galaxy

Soo.... Are black holes flat like the Earth and moon?

This is really cool and I love that it has made this thread so active. Even if Tyson had to try to politized the moment. :-)

No way to objectively know, but it's hypothesized that they could be a zero-dimensional point.

At the least they are hyper-compressed but retain 3D sphericality. Like if the entire mass of the earth was the size of a golf ball. Would probably be perfectly round and smooth as the compressive forces wouldn't allow any other shape or any features to the region.

Likely time doesn't 'exist' as a dimension within either.
