Matter of utmost gravity

Today (Sat 14 Sep 2019), the paper version of the Times reported on 'the black hole at the centre of the solar system'. This has been corrected online to 'the black hole at the centre of the Milky Way'. We can sleep easier. Although one does wonder if the science correspondent at the Times actually thought about the article, just for a moment, before authorising publication.

* I read this shocking revelation in the morning while at a coffee shop in Tynemouth, but didn't take a photo. Pictures of the offending article have been posted on Twitter though.

HI David yes the ignorance of the media with anything to do with Astronomy beggars belief
