These absolutely crazy mofos did it.


They took a picture of the universe's asshole. WTF mate, the amount of data they had to collect is just mindboggling.

Why is everyone on the internet so salty about the black hole pic. You guys acted like you expected the black hole pic dropping to be the fuckin rapture. It's an amazing achievement that was decades in the making, and people from major science and tech outlets are literally dropping thinkpieces about how no one gives a shit. What happened to the world?

it was hyped retardedly and the story of "government scientist spends billions to confirm own hypothesis" is so disingenuous that nobody believes it. they were going to find what they were looking for no matter how hard the data needed to be manipulated because to do otherwise would have been admitting what a stupendous waste of cash it all was.

I saw your post earlier and I was coming back to link some articles of the great incredulity, but look, we have one posting right here, so why bother? I will say that on day two I finally saw some more positive articles too, though.

>>they were going to find what they were looking for no matter how hard the data needed to be manipulated because to do otherwise would have been admitting what a stupendous waste of cash it all was.
While that applies in some cases of modern astronomy ( I'm thinking mainly of that recent study that found the intra-galactic dark matter filaments by re-orienting and superimposing the images of millions of galaxies) the case with this particular black hole and why we can see it with our current tech is pretty interesting. It's mostly due to its polar orientation. It's not like its cgi; we're seeing light from the black hole.

I'm kind of afraid that the general disbelief around it implies that flat earth tier science denialism is starting to leak into the groundwater, so to speak.

maybe its intellectual laziness that might prevent one from gleefully reading about the technology involved so as to quench any disbelief or maybe its just depression over the regular reminder that there is no benefit to anyone in extragalactic studies when we're still stuck here on one planet going nowhere fast with the temperature rising and suspicious that they hype behind all this is solely a function of it's budget. the lot of us have been taught our entire lives that super science geniuses are going to make all sorts of valuable discoveries and that justifies all of their gigaspendings and decades go by with nothing to show but pretty pictures. are we all going to expire on this rock while these fags hog up all the resources and devote it to naming equations and comets and galaxies after each other?
tl;dr i'm ambivalent

30 years of progress and all we get out of it is replacing print media and human interaction with twitter and facebook? I guess the trillions of dollars dumped on university and government research during like the interval wasn't spent very wisely.
You should face the fact that fags like yourself get excited about shit like this for the same reason that the next big star wars movies gets you excited.

Acknowledge the second half of his post.
Just because YOU only use it for replacing print and human interaction doesn't mean other people don't utilize the tech in mire useful ways.

Theres thats post in that other thread about twitter shitposts and celbrity bullshit being beamed into to space to satisfy some entitled upper class twit's petty, swallow egotism which refutes the idea you seem to be convinced of which is that this is all valuable and worthwhile. You probably believe in "dark matter" too. You'd believe in Aristotle's epicycles if an authority figure told you to.

Imagine all those reddditfags from days of yore. all them in 1100ad or whenever was all jacking off to aristotle's cosmology the same way contemporary faggots jerk it to edwin hubble. when an inexplicable observation is made such as in galactic rotations curves some genius invents total bullshit like "dark matter" to explain it and bang! suddenly "dark matter" becomes "real". how evolved is modern science? if its all still just a bunch of backslappers jacking each other off like it was back in the pre-gallilean days then tremendous skepticism over something like the OP topic of this thread is completely warranted.

>>how evolved is modern science?
Aristotle's most advanced technology for communication was words written on a piece of paper and tied around the leg of a specially trained pigeon. Now that's not nothing, and it shows the level of advancement and societal evolution possible with the ancient worldview.
Modern science's enables the method of communication we are using right now, which involves a planet wide network of electronic fibers that coordinate quadrillions of discrete pulses of electrons which represent arbitrary mathematical functions which are decoded by an information processing wafer of silicon into a flurry of pulsing lights which are interpretable by me as the words of your petty rant.

If the one technology is more evolved than the other, then the science that created the one is more evolved than the other. Is it harder to make a computer from scratch than train a homing pigeon from scratch? Answer your own question then. This was the initial objection to your claim I posted, which you sidestepped responding to by getting triggered over me calling you out for being an alien invader not native to these boards, and a frogposter to boot. So feel free to get triggered again and prove you don't have an actual argument but just want to seem woke for saying science is dumb and haven't figured out what 'hypocrisy' is.

trying to get under someone's skin by accusing them of being "triggered" (unreasonably upset) just because they disagree with you on an anonymous imageboard just goes to show that you're not interested in any kind of discourse and you think that the honest exchange of information and social manipulation games are equivalents, so having any sort of an honest discussion of any topic with you isn't possible. go work your social manipulation techniques on the social media with the rest of your ilk, but 2+2 will never equal five no matter how much you really really want it to, no matter how entitled you feel to be right, five will always be the wrong answer.

I wasn't replying to a post on usenet. The person I was replying to didn't make their post on usenet. I was replying to a post made in this thread on this board of this chan. This chan is not usenet.

You never responded to any of the substantive claims made against what you were saying. The most basic being; how can you claim science has no use if you're using it to make that claim? You responded with progressively more childish arguments, so you got the same back in kind. Notice how merely using the word 'triggered' got you to ignore two whole paragraphs of material you could have had a discourse with? So this is more indication to me of hypocrisy; you claim to want to debate, but really you want to make unjustified claims and not back them up and get incensed over the tone of the discussion (which you brought down.) Which is fine -- but people will call you out on it.
>>go work your social manipulation techniques
If, as you claim, my objective is to get you so riled up I don't even have to bother disputing your (unpresented) arguments then that seems to be exactly what has happened, so it would seem I'm succeeding? My actual objective is to have a meaningful discussion and hopefully elevate your understanding and I'm failing at that, but as I care very little when someone is so vitriolic out the gate, it doesn't bother me much. However you can't have it both ways; either you admit that I am actually trying to have a debate and you're deflecting that, which is why I'm bad at manipulation, or I'm good at manipulation, which is why you're incapable of defending your claim.

>> 2+2 will never equal five
Indeed. But what you're saying is 2 I'm saying is 3, and we can proceed no further until we examine evidence as to whether it is actually 2 or 3.

When seeing the news about this the first thing that came to my mind was that the Internet Kooks and Alex Jones-esque "science is wrong and evil" types will be absolutely livid about this.
It seems that was right.
