Thank you Freya. We have a new excuse for tardiness. I was dressed and out the door on time but black hole started spinning so the bus was late!

Never new black holes spun. It's hard to imagine that much mass spinning at all.

As I've come to expect from you, Freya, you have once again spun my world in an interesting way~ Previous knowledge regarding black holes indicated less 'life' - if you will, from these mysterious masses. The article you have shared with Care2, represents more constructive energies from this abyss. Perhaps the human concept of 'black holes' will take a 'spin' towards something most inspiring, and perhaps much more life affirming. Always, Thank You, Freya!
