Discovered in 1779 by Johann Gottfried Koehler and later catalogued by Charles Messier. Like most elliptical galaxies, M60 lacks active star formation and is essentially composed of very old stars, giving it a characteristic red hue. M60 also features one of the largest black holes ever found, weighing in at about 4.5 trillion times the mass of the sun!

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
