I saw this on Reddit so I thought I'd share it here. It turns out before a mission NASA releases an official mission poster starring the crew, they're pretty cool and funny. These are a couple of my favourites.

 

 

 

Here's the link for the rest.

As most of you probably know. Today we are awaiting the first photo of a black hole. Exciting stuff!

Just going to post in here for topic's sake.

From the BBC article posted above.. 

 

"It measures 40 billion km across - three million times the size of the Earth - and has been described by scientists as "a monster". The black hole is 500 million trillion km away and was photographed by a network of eight telescopes across the world."

  • 40b km across (24.85b miles)
  • 3 million times the size of Earth
  • it's 500 million trillion km away (310.7 million trillion miles) - million trillion is a 1 followed by 18 zeroes or a Quintillion - 310,700,000,000,000,000,000
  • the representation of space in this image is larger than our entire Solar System
  • total mass is 6.5 billion times larger than our Sun (our Sun is 333,000 more massive than the Earth)

 

The Event horizon telescope observations use a technique called very-long-baseline interferometry (VLBI) which synchronises telescope facilities around the world and exploits the rotation of our planet to form one huge, Earth-size telescope observing at a wavelength of 1.3 mm. VLBI allows the EHT to achieve an angular resolution of 20 micro-arcseconds — enough to read a newspaper in New York from a sidewalk café in Paris

 

F*ckin' nuts
