    I didn't realize how big of a deal this was until I heard Brian Greene explain why on JRE. So for those who poo poo on Joe Rogan, he reaches a large audience and because of that, dummies like me have a better understanding of physics. Not a huge one, but a better one. For those that don't know who Brian Greene is.

    This guy does a good job of explaining why the image looks like it does.
