Will NASA Unveil A Chandra Image Similar To This Black Hole Rendition?
NASA To Make Major Nerd Announcement
A somewhat mysterious media advisory was posted to NASA's website. Rumor has it that it may be the first direct observation of a black hole! O.K. admittedly this is for nerds, but it's still very interesting - or at least I think so. While black holes are fairly common, and the effects which they have on surrounding matter is well documented the direct observation of a black hole would be a first.
Here's the announcement:
