The Top Ten

1 First Image Taken of a Black Hole

This was truly the highlight of photography in 2019. It was the 1st time we ever photographed a black hole & it required a constellation of telescopes worldwide that took over a decade to make & it was named the Event Horizon Telescope, which is basically Earth. Yet it took 2 years to photograph the black hole & have all the data collected. It was the hardest thing we’d ever photograph & the best photograph of 2019 & ever since Apollo 17’s photograph of Earth. It was like photographing an orange on the Moon from Earth. Like opening a present to see what’s inside & like Mary Poppins said, even the impossible is possible. - SamanthaRosie

22 SpaceX Launched LightSail-2

This was their most difficult project so far, and they launched LightSail-2, a solar sail, and it's the 1st solar sail to successfully operate and be powered by sunlight.
It also involved deploying 24 satellites and the landings were good, except the new core booster missed and crashed, making this mission partially a failure.
Hopefully they someday make a completely successful mission. - Gregory

28 Friends Reunion Selfie on Instagram

On October 15, a long-anticipated reunion with the cast of Friends just took place on Instagram via a selfie taken by Jennifer Aniston. While it was low quality & blurry, that didn't stop the madness that took place. With a wave of followers hitting here, she gained the 1st 1 million followers in just 5 hours 16 minutes (the fastest time ever on Instagram) & a whopping ~8.6 million in 24 hours, which no one's ever done before anywhere. To see the 1st debut post/photo lead to a frenzy of followers is just crazy. Indescribable. She even crashed Instagram with the light-speed rate of followers & was all over the media. It showed us how much the T.V. sitcom Friends will always be loved & she did the impossible. Like Mary Poppins said, even the impossible is possible. - SamanthaRosie

36 My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Ends

After 9 years, 9 seasons & 221 episodes, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic ended. That’s longer than Phineas & Ferb & almost as long as Friends. It was My Little Pony’s biggest series & this marked the end of an era in animated television. It’s so far the biggest animated series to come to an end after the Fairly OddParents on Nickelodeon & until the Simpsons. Condolences to the MLP fandom. No offense to MLP haters, but this could’ve ran for 10 years & seemed to have the potential to but instead Discovery decided to cut it a year short, so it’s bad luck for the MLP crew & fandom. - SamanthaRosie
