@robotfriend This time it was me waiting in the middle of Boston at 2:00am for a Greyhound bus that never showed up
Anyways, here's another Katie who's an actual expert in this stuff to talk about cool that weird blurry image is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IMhntBBAzo
"See" is of course a strong word when it comes radio astronomy. The image shows radio waves, and the process is nonsense complicated (but this is a great explanation https://www.ted.com/talks/katie_bouman_what_does_a_black_hole_look_like#t-759204
Point Being: We've known a lot about black holes. We know they exist, and we know how they work BUT NOW WE'VE ACTUALLY SEEN ONE IN THE WILD https://www.theguardian.com/science/2019/apr/10/black-hole-picture-captured-for-first-time-in-space-breakthrough
(that's a fun fact that I don't have a source for, but here's a neat article about how they developed that renderer https://www.fxguide.com/featured/interstellar-inside-the-black-art/ )
Since then other evidence of black holes has been observed, including the gravitational waves from two of them smashing together, in 2015 https://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/12/science/ligo-gravitational-waves-black-holes-einstein.html
Anyways, this is a pretty great doc about the engineering challenges of Apollo 8 https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/video/apollos-daring-mission/

It is not focused on any particular niche interest, however, I am a fountain pen user/collector, hence the semi-related "squid" name. (Squid. Ink. Get it?) Also... Cephalopods. Analog/digital photography, science. It’s all good. Everyone is welcome as long as you follow the code of conduct.
Bow to your cephalopod overloards!
