10 Perfect Reactions to the First Ever Image of a Black Hole

By

In a news conference on April 10, scientists unveiled the first ever photo of a black hole, or rather the event horizon of a black hole. The image is the result of two years of work with observations made with the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), and is currently the strongest evidence to date proving the existence of black holes.


The image of Sagittarius-A, the black hole at the center of the Milky Way, was met by gasps and applause when unveiled at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. as well as at five other venues around the world. And to the public at large, it has garnered some pretty hilarious reactions about the gravity of this discovery. Pun very much intended.
