Chandra finds 30 year old black hole

November 15 2010

It may be fast approaching middle age, but NASA has found the youngest black hole in our galaxy, courtesy of the Chandra telescope. I remember the awkward feeling, 30 years old and still the youngest person in the room. Trust me SN1979C (for that is its name) it’s all downhill from here. In a few years’ time you’ll be looking at other black holes and wondering if you were ever that fresh faced and naive.
