So if you’ve been living under a rock or perhaps…living in a blackhole you might have missed the news about the very first photograph of a blackhole. It’s pretty dope if you ask me. Up until now we’ve only had visuals via movies or tv shows that kinda fictionalize what they look like. So now that we have the photograph of this science baby. Scientists have named it “‘Powehi” which is a Hawaiian phrase that means “the adorned fathomless dark creator” The name, which was given by University of Hawaii-Hilo Hawaiian professor Larry Kimura, comes from an 18th century Hawaiian creation chant called the Kumulipo.
Okay cool name!
BUUUUUT check this out music and science nerds!
A Chris Cornell super fan named Gilulana Jarrin has put out a petition on change.org that caught attention. In her statement she says:
““Black Hole Sun”, written by Chris Cornell is without a doubt Soundgarden’s most recognizable and most popular song, and one of the biggest anthems of the 90’s. For this reason, and the impact Chris Cornell had in the lives of so many and music itself, I ask NASA, the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration and all the astronomers and scientists involved in this discovery, to name this black hole after Chris Cornell. This would be a “surreal” and amazing way to honor his life and his contribution to music.”
I mean I think it’s a great idea! And as of right now more than 10,000 folks agree with Jarrin! Which is also pretty freakin’ rad!
