There is a Petition to have Black Hole named after Chris Cornell

Chris Cornell fan Guiliana Jarrin has started a petition to have the Black Hole discovered this week named after Soundgarden’s late singer Chris Cornell.

Juliana writes at change.org, “Black Hole Sun”, written by Chris Cornell is without a doubt Soundgarden’s most recognizable and most popular song, and one of the biggest anthems of the 90’s. 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 honor his life and his contribution to music”.

Over 22,000 people had signed the petition on the first day.

Chris Cornell died on May 18, 2017. Soundgarden’s classic ‘Black Hole Sun’ featured on the band’s fourth album ‘Superunknown’, released in 1994.
