11_the real DARKNESS (inspiration)

Updated: Apr 1

'The water, equivalent to 140 trillion times all the water in the world's ocean, surrounds a huge, feeding black hole, called a quasar, more than 12 billion light-years away.'

Many of you wonderful readers have commented regarding, "Iain's insane imagination." While I appreciate the compliment, the beauty of my storyworlds are that they're always loosely based on a scientific finding, concept, or gray area. The characters that live and die in these worlds, now they lean heavy on the 'Iain's a full on nutter side of the equation.'



How do you not feel the immensity and awe while attempting to wrap your mind around 140 trillion times the water in earths oceans hangin around (little choice) a 'feeding black hole?'

That my fellow lovers of the space yarn, is the DARKNESS.
