    has this been deemed racist yet and forced to be renamed into Super-Happy-Fun Hole or Glory Hole or something ?

    On a more serious note, I love that people still keep pushing the boundaries each day. All the guys and gals working on this stuff have my utmost respect. Well played and keep it up!

    Well, probably his wife behind him, telling him to suck in his belly because he's been eating like a pig so that even tiny humans so far away were able to notice :D


    Still one of my favourite movies.

    they should be able to tell right away whether that entire galaxy is moving toward or away from us, based on the properties of the light waves they observe

    You know, this data is from the end of last year... which is around the same time Nvidia launched those RTX cards. I think you're onto something.

    It's amazes me we have technology and talented scientists to put together something that so far away from us.

    Yet it saddens me when people asking why it's blurry.

    Now back to memes:
