Fans of deceased rock singer Chris Cornell have started a petition to name the black hole recently pictured for the first time after him.

The Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration recently snapped the first ever picture of a black hole in space.

The legendary singer who tragically passed about two years ago is known for chart-topping hits in the bands Soundgarden and Audioslave. One of the most well-known hits is called Black Hole Sun, and the album art for that specific song has some people connecting the dots.



The band even chimed in on their social media pages.

Looks oddly familiar… #EHTBlackHole

Thepetition on says, “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 honor his life and his contribution to music.”
