Judith Butler, feminist philosopher: "The point is not that they will go after abortion first, gay marriage second, and contraception third. No, the legal framework that is emerging targets the very idea of new historical formations of freedom (and equality) and seeks a restoration of patriarchal order backed by the force of federal law."

It's important to note that black holes don't suck! They aren't cosmic vacuum cleaners -- instead they're just...holes, in space, that things fall into if they get close enough. Think of them more like a gopher hole in a field, or a sink drain, instead of a vacuum cleaner.
The "danger zone" of getting stuck is incredibly small! Most things can orbit around black holes in a stable way for millions to billions of years. I talk all about black holes in this virtual keynote: https://youtu.be/E18_X4rM0dM
Our black hole is at the center of our Milky Way galaxy and has a mass of about 4.4 million times the mass of the Sun. Astronomers often use the mass of the Sun (or "solar masses") since grams, pounds, or kilograms is a bit silly on literally astronomical scales.
We've known that this black hole was there for a few decades, but this is the highest resolution image we've taken had of it (or I think of anything, ever?!?)
Hello fellow earthlings, it's time for another #ThreadThursdays! Let's chat about this picture of #OurBlackHole, Sagittarius A*, taken by the Event Horizon Telescope!! Idk about you, but my news feeds were absolutely plastered with this beautiful lumpy orange donut.
