This is such a huge deal I feel like a kid in a candy store. All the images of black holes you've ever seen are just illustrations. NASA revealed a few hours ago the first picture ever taken of the mysterious and elusive black hole. This is the object that holds our galaxy together. We live in the most amazing times that we get to see this.
I write scifi fantasy, which means I can just make up whatever crazy thing comes to my mind, but this, this is real, and is the very stuff that writers are looking at and saying... oh wow, a thousand stories could be launched from this one image.
Do you see those yellow lights on the bottom of the black hole? Those are one, maybe more, unknown objects moving around the black hole at light speed. Yep, several unknown objects moving at light speed. The science of that alone is mind boggling.
Yep, yep... a thousand stories could be written about what those objects are.
Now, those objects could just be captured suns spiraling into the black hole, but still, for them to have reached light speed is staggering.
So, tossing science fact aside now...what is moving around that black hole at light speed?
My scifi theories:
A Dyson sphere, An ancient monolith left for us with a message about the meaning of the Universe, A trapped Starship desperately trying to escape, a Being of immense power, a planet trapped and being pulled into the black hole, while the population having already escaped watches on, and one of them says, 'we need a new planet', and someone replies, 'hey, what about that Earth planet, let's go there'.
What do you think?

With the Orwellian clown world we are living in, now, we’d better leave Earth before the great genocide comes to us who have built the Western Civilization. What is traveling around that black hole? Probably its last "meal" : a giant star. It is being ripped apart under the black hole intense gravity. Fantastic picture; thank you for sharing it with us!
I was reading about this on NASA's site... How amazing is it that they can actually capture an image of something 55 million light-years away? That's what boggles my mind.... It takes light 55 million years to get here.. This image started its journey to us when dinosaurs were the dominant life form on this planet.. It's enough to melt your brain...
What's circling at the event horizon? I think it's that ship from the Disney movie... 😉
