    @TheZigRat: Awesome post, awesome images, just awesome, I favorited this.
    I don`t think black holes are really a hole per-se, I think if one were to visualize them they`d look akin to a more extreme pulsar, but who really knows, physics break down at that intensity, they probably even have a 5th state of matter. But amazing images, wonderful!

    That`s cool except it`s not a black hole anymore. It`s the "apparent Horizon"

    Wait, wasn`t there just an article about Stephen Hawking casting doubt on the existence of black holes?

    I *LOVE* schitt like this!

    And no piratefish, it was about how our understanding of the event horizon of a Black Hole and how it interacts with surrounding space that was incorrect.
    Hawking kindly straighten that out for everyone.
