The Universe's Greatest Mystery

Evan Davis: Hello. Excitement in Brussels.
Generic European Accent: If there is a big moment for all of us, it is today.
Evan Davis: Finally we get a clear picture of that dark vortex sucking in all time and energy.
Generic European Accent : It feels like really looking at the gates of Hell. At the end of space and time. The point of no return.
Evan Davis: Its not what you might be thinking but a black hole 55 million light years away. Meanwhile, back on earth, across the road in Brussels ....... Brexit.
In general lately BBC current affairs and news coverage has been driving me spare. The bait-and-switch at the start of PM on Radio 4 yesterday afternoon however, made me laugh out loud. Herewith.

Also courtesy of the BBC, here is a documentary following the researchers as they attempted to take the first-ever picture of a black hole, travelling the globe to build a revolutionary telescope that spans planet Earth.

Have I been too hard on Auntie?
