Black Hole Easter Egg

Postby Krunchyman » Sun Sep 30, 2012 1:12 am

I was reading about a newly photographed supermassive black hole a few days ago. Right here is the hyperlink to the article that has a picture of the black hole.

Today, I saw the same picture of the black hole in one of the game backgrounds, in the lower right corner. Sadly, I forgot to take screenshots. Has anyone else noticed this easter egg?

That's... not quite an Easter Egg.

That is an old picture of the M87 galaxy

The article you linked even says
As Erin Bow explains in the comments, the image above isn't actually new — it's from 2000.


One of the images here is actually the zoomed-in view of the black hole:

Ah, yes... I should have stated that.
