Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

No, the "fabric of space-time" is not being "ripped apart."

While doing my usual morning browse through Google News, I came across something unsettling. A headline from The Register read:

Very fabric of space-time RIPPED apart in latest Hubble pic

Of course, there was nothing in the article that even mentions "ripping apart" space-time . I suppose you could argue on a technicality that there could be a super massive black hole at the heart of the galaxy pictured, which would be messing with space-time. But I wouldn't call that "ripping." How this relatively tame photo became all Michael Bay'd by the Register escapes me. Either way, this is some seriously ridiculous click bait.
