'It's not everyday that you get to witness the birth of a black hole, and yet that it precisely what scientists believe they've seen.
Using the Hubble telescope along with others NASA's scientists were able to watch as a star 25 times more massive than our own crumpled into a black hole.'
Science in action… incredible to record something like this as it happens.

That happens in Hollywood all the time! :)
PS. Specially when they start believing that their personal opinions on other subjects should somehow become overwhelmingly important to the rest of us.

But perhaps slightly better than the ramblings of teenage pop stars…
(include in that much older pop stars who still think of themselves as teenagers!)

I think they missed it. They just blinked and it wasn't there any more.

Or maybe it was never there. The early records had specks all over them where someone had sneezed*.
* Would they ever admit to such a scenario, I wonder. :)

Uh-oh. After reading "Pandora's Star", this has me worried.

Wow, I saw the title to this thread and thought somebody wrote a biography about my ex-wife.

Not "as it happens", since that would have occurred millions of light years ago?

True… but I think that comes under the heading of nit picking…
|PaddySinclair||27 May 2017 3:07 a.m. PST|
Nah, nit picking would have been pointing out that light years are a measurement of distance, not time ;)

But I bet I could get there in less than 12 parsecs!
(And yeah, I know, so don't bother. Revisionism-- sheesh!)

You people in the Alpha Quadrant crack me up.

Yes, misread that one didn't I?
