    Link: The First Glimpse Of A Star Being Consumed... - By a black hole? A supermassive black hole has been seen while it is consuming a star, not just the aftermath.

    A tad misleading. While the event itself must have been fascinating, I don`t particularly need to see just another artistic rendering of what it would look like.

    Pfff... This is all nonsense. It can`t be true since the universe is only 6-7 thousand years old. Can I get an Amen?

    Does this mean this is the first time an artist has ever tried to paint a star being consumed by a black hole?

    "could best be explained by a..."
    "The team`s theory is that a star...."
    "That jet was likely responsible for the mysterious burst...."
    "Burrows estimates that...."
    "might have been swallowed by the black hole...."

    I know that artist`s conception is pretty strong evidence, but maybe it`s something no one`s ever seen before (well actually no one has seen this either).

    So the only "first glimpse" is an artist rendering. Disappointment.

    That`s one fine list, Mr. Bacon Pie.
    I share your sense of too-badness.
