Fan Petitions Black Hole To Be Named After Chris Cornell

If you've watched the news this week, odds are you've heard about the newly photographed black hole, right? I mean it's unreal! Astronomers released a picture of the thing, and they say it's about three million times the size of Earth!

Now one big fan of the late great Chris Cornell is petitioning to have the black hole named after the iconic singer, of course paying homage to his band Soundgarden's hit "Black Hole Sun."

The petition's creator says:

“Almost two years ago, we lost Chris Cornell. He was the lead singer for Soundgarden and Audioslave and above all, the voice of an entire generation…Black Hole Sun, written by Chris Cornell is without a doubt Soundgarden’s most recognisable and most popular song, and one of the biggest anthems of the ’90s.

“For this reason, and the impact Chris Cornell had in the lives of so many and music itself, I ask NASA, the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration and all the astronomers and scientists involved in this discovery, to name this black hole after Chris Cornell. This would be a ‘surreal’ and amazing way to honour his life and his contribution to music.”

I love the idea! Want to help possibly make this idea a reality? Sign the petition HERE!
