Huge Fans?

December 1st, 2005

I found this image on a Hubble site; it shows the center of the M51 galaxy, the image being hundreds of light years across:


According to NASA:

The “X” is due to absorption by dust and marks the exact position of a black hole which may have a mass equivalent to one-million stars like the sun. The darkest bar may be an edge-on dust ring which is 100 light-years in diameter. … The second bar of the “X” could be a second disk seen edge on, or possibly rotating gas and dust in MS1 intersecting with the jets and ionization cones.

Me, I think they’re huge fans of The X-Files and are trying to tell us something; see one version of The X-Files’ logo below, and compare:


The Truth Is Waaaaay Out There.

    i think the “X” is really a cross. it looks like a communion host to me. A sign from God. <3

    this is not an X from X Files. it is obviously a sign from God and it is Jesus on the cross.

    hey guys!

    I definitely think it is just a small picture of God that shows the awesome presence of JESUS everywhere we run away. Science is just the beginning of the revelation of our awesome God. The truth will far outweigh the entire experiment. Good job!
