Just two days after astronomers released the first-ever photograph of a black hole, Chris Cornell fans have banded together to get the space phenomena named after the singer.
A fan launched a petition to use the black hole to honor Cornell and his famous song, "Black Hole Sun."
The song is without a doubt Soundgarden’s most recognisable and most popular song, and one of the biggest anthems of the ’90s," she wrote in the description. “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.”
