Also we didn’t just observe the supermassive black hole once and were fine with that; we viewed the black hole over several days of observation, so we watched the gas/dust disk’s dynamics change quite rapidly. The disk is orbiting at about 1000km/sec [~600mi/sec] and nearly 90 Earth masses of material falls in every day. Early data is even suggesting the jet of material escaping before the event horizon may be pushing the black hole, moving it away from the center of M87.

There is a concerning amount of liquid on the floor of this bus. I don’t want to know details

Does anyone know the author of this piece of #piexlart amiga.lychesis.net/colors/32/P

@ejk and I are doing a cross-stitch of it and we want to give credit.

I was in a meeting with four Davids. There were only six people, including me. And four Davids!

Anne Harding and I made a hand-drawn, hand-cranked version of Truncation (shonk.tumblr.com/post/12997043), showing cross sections of a hypercube.

Check it out in person at the Curfman Gallery (lsc.colostate.edu/campus-activ).

My lyft driver just told me some crazy stories and he 100% was a spy in Russia (though he claimed otherwise) and he may come back to kill me in my sleep, but he has two cute dogs so that's probably not going to happen
