Honestly, how can they actually determine the size, exact distance, mass, angles, etc from something that is 3.5 BILLION lightyears away?
And which one of us is going to go out and prove one of these nut-brains wrong?
I think they're messing with us.

Here ya go. What a great field to work in. I shouldn't have spent high school catchin' a buzz, that's for sure.
“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
― Muhammad Ali

And yes, as a matter of fact, I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night . . . .

I'm not saying that some of this cannot be done. But it seems far fetched - especially talking about "holes" in space 3.5 BILLION lightyears away. But we take they're word for it, because they're geeks.
Sorry, but the world's biggest black hole is right here... FOO! Sucks time and, in many cases, large quantities of brain matter from the masses.
