Last April, the first image of a black hole was released.
The famous black hole is now famous for a different reason: For the 1st time, astronomers have recorded particles propelling from a black hole at nearly the speed of light using @chandraxray data. https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/chandra/images/famous-black-hole-has-jet-pushing-cosmic-speed-limit.html?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=80236909
@vortok One of my bittersweet realisations after spending time on the alt-web is that social media can actually be an educational, solidarity-building, and even healthy experience, but ad-driven/engagement-driven platforms have ruined it and somehow made a version of social media that alienates people instead of connecting them. And now this version has become the monoculture so everyone thinks social media is bad.
Social media isn't bad. Social media is good. This medium has so much potential
