The first ever image of a black hole hitting humanity’s collective eyeballs yesterday had the Muse fandom looking to one man for answers.
They’ve been mass-spamming Matt Bellamy for his reaction to the phenomenon, as well as just plain flooding social media with references to Muse, their 2006 album Black Holes and Revelations, and its lead single ‘Supermassive Black Hole’.
ICYMI: astronomers yesterday released an image they took of one black hole, which is located in the M87 galaxy (over 500 million TRILLION kilometres away) and measures 40 billion kilometres across – a casual three million times the size of earth.
Bellamy, for his part, did comment on the whole thing, writing on Twitter: “Supermassive black hole, finally spotted”.

I missed the blackhole unveiling, did they play Muse or Soundgarden?
