Why the first-ever picture of a black hole felt like a major let down

The void is, like, kind of whatever.Image: EVENT HORIZON TELESCOPE / EPA-EFE / REX / SHUTTERSTOCK For decades, pictures from space have forced humanity to reckon with our own cosmically small insignificance.

EHT’s international group of astronomers revealed “a bright ring formed as light bends in the intense gravity around a black hole that is 6.5 billion times more massive than the Sun.” Our collective response to this historic discovery? Basically: “LOL, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.”  I’m sorry, I just found out the last message …
