    So, this is a pretty big thing, Tomorrow (April 10th), the team behind the Event Horizon Telescope is set to release the first image taken of a black hole.

    Veritasium made a good video explaining what we'll probably see (assuming its a non-spinning black hole). If you're a science nerd like me, give this video a watch.



    (Also, here's the video about Spinning black holes that he mentions)

    Science nerds unite! I love stuff like this and this is a massive achievement.

    Having said that, we may not want to look too closely at the black hole as it looks like the Eye of Sauron.

    Agreed, my first thought was the image looks like a low res still from the opening credits of the Lord of the Rings, where the ring is being forged in Mount Doom.

    Still what the image represents is very cool.

    It's kind of mind-boggling that when you're looking at it, you're looking at all sides of a sphere at once.

    The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the picture was how much it reminded me of a solar eclipse.

    I made another That-One-Chat-Thread but it's not required reading, as everything is optional depending on Interest.

    I thought some 'might' enjoy this fantastic Video as it speaks to the theme of Discovery & Subtle; something I eluded to 1 week prior to the Season 2 Episode 13/14 (Two Part Final) of course. It also ends on the Topic in That-One-Chat-Thread that started in the post above 2 weeks earlier about 42 and the Hitchhiker's Guide the Galaxy, and then brings it back to Hawkings & Einstein both whom share a connection to 14 among others.

    You don't require to watch the whole video, but some may want to, yet if you jump to 1:00:27 that takes you to Black Holes. Which references some of the things I referenced in the 'link' above. Also 1m prior the Female Scientist also eludes to some interesting things in July 2015, as they hoped to have enabled within 4-5 years so 59:25, for those who want to go back a little.



    - - - UPDATE - - -
    1:10:52 in video related to my earlier Shake it Off - Taylor Swift chant - references Strings &/or Membranes.

    Then maybe go back and see, 'That-One-Chat-Thread' perhaps, after you've done seen the above.

    - - - UPDATE 2 - - -
    Also FOCUS on the TNG cameo in which 'he' plays himself, Stephen Hawkings, and denote 1:15:50 as well. Predicting the … being more than 3. Now in the TNG cameo Hawkings had 4-7's & a J perhaps, or did Stephen just want his Pie? Wink

    Who knows - after all one was born on 3.14 the other left on it?
    V2zP93A

    1:24:38 has in common with what, similar to how Newton's law break's down and Einstein's...

    Perhaps >3 was implied by Stephen earlier on as well as Einstein; by the 4-7's or it was just one of the men was Hungry and wanted some Pie? But that would just be 'highly coincidental in fact. Not to say it's the answer either as what did the card's reveal &/or the pie? But like all things it just means we need to perhaps be open to slightly larger factor's at play.

    That's all, nothing more, nothing less...
