What a lovely destination, Lindal!

This animated zoom-in is of Sagittarius A*, or at least the indirect evidence for it. At the end is a seven year time lapse showing the proper motion of a gas cloud and some stars, which allowed scientists to calculate the mass and distribution of the thing that was tugging all that stuff around... a supermassive black hole.

Awwwww, c’mon Par. It’s just a little supermassive black hole. I promise I’ll put everything away when I’m done annihilating it.

Pretty please?

...mails you a very flat supermassive black hole in an official looking bubble envelope marked "You're a winner!"

I am nothing if not persistent. And I'm waiting for you to say you don't have a mailbox.

No wonder that “file 13” is bottomless, it has a black hole in it.

He died in the hospital last night during treatment. I had signed a DNR, so at least he’s not suffering any more.

This caught my eye. :ph34r: "A new benefit..." really? How long "new" is new?
How about updating that picture on the dashboard?
