"ScienceDaily (Oct. 5, 2012) — NASA's Swift satellite recently detected a rising tide of high-energy X-rays from a source toward the center of our Milky Way galaxy. The outburst, produced by a rare X-ray nova, announced the presence of a previously unknown stellar-mass black hole."

At roughly the same time, OH and I discovered a new black hole in our budget.

Coincidence, or what? :iconbiggrin:
