We can’t leave the topic of Macross
and the military without talking about space just a little bit first.

This MSNBC article
details the possible conclusive discovery of black holes. I can’t say why,
but the very concept of black holes has always piqued my imagination.
It seems incredible that matter can actually fall in upon itself to such a
point as it eventually becomes a tear in space that seeks to destroy any
other matter that gets too close. I also think some of the wild theories
that such tears might even represents tears in the fabric of time, like
wormholes, is an intriguing prospect.

Joseph Dolan, of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, might very well have
the evidence to prove that black holes exist. In his hunt, he has been
researching old Hubble Space Telescope data of an object called Cygnus XR-1.
Cygnus XR-1 is an object assumed to be a stellar black hole roughly six
thousand light-years away.

In some images from 1992, he found some bright flashes of ultraviolet light
that sputtered and then disappeared. Dolan is suggesting that the
phenomenon, found in two separate instances, represent hot blobs of gas
orbiting inward and spiraling though the event horizon.

Dolan will be presenting his findings this week before his peers at the
American Astronomical Society in San Diego. We don’t know yet whether
his findings will be enough to satiate the scientific community. My
perception seems to indicate nothing is conclusive enough to do that. Dolan
admits there is a possibility XR-1 is not a black hole, but something more exotic.
Such a possibility stands a chance to destroy some of Einstein’s theories.
