Scientists Reportedly Capture the First Image of a Black Hole

In astrophysics milestone first You will soon be able to see the first-ever photo of a black hole

Scientists and researchers working as part of the Event Horizon Telescope project have revealed the very first photograph ever taken of a black hole.

The first goal of the Event Horizon Telescope project was to capture a photo of the black hole.

"You have all this energy stored in the black hole".

"Science fiction has become science fact", Avery Broderick, an astronomer at the University of Waterloo, said at press conference where the image was first shown to the public.

The unveiling at the nation's capital took place nearly exactly a century after Albert Einstein became famous for his theory of general relativity, which led to a new conception of the cosmos where space-time could bend, expand, or even disappear into a black hole forever.

Astrophysicist Dimitrios Psaltis of the University of Arizona, the EHT project scientist, said, "The size and shape of the shadow matches the precise predictions of Einstein's general theory of relativity, increasing our confidence in this century-old theory". The data for this black hole came in two years ago, and scientists have been forming it into a clear image since then.

The image of the dark circle surrounded by a ring of hot gas made history. It took a team of more than 200 astronomers to pull this off, along with eight massive radio telescopes organized into the "Event Horizon Telescope" or ETH.

Trump Administration Labels Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps a 'Terrorist Organization'
The Supreme National Security Council said in a statement that "Iran labels the American regime as a supporter of terrorism". The Revolutionary Guard recruits and trains thousands of fighters overseas through its Quds Force , headed by Gen.

The volume of data generated was unprecedented - in one night the EHT generated as much data as the Large Hadron Collider does in a year.

"You could have seen something that was unexpected, but we didn't see something that was unexpected".

Black holes are so massive they warp space and time and allow no light to escape, so the photo is expected to be of the "edge" of the phenomenon.

This person, who works for Firefox, saw the Firefox logo in the black hole. At the center of the galaxy is a supermassive black hole.

"The shadow of the black hole is almost circular, which is consistent with our simulations".

That's why the Event Horizon Telescope combined measurements from radio observatories on four separate continents.

The scientists said they focused their efforts on M87 first since the black hole moves a thousand times slower than the Sagittarius A, making it easier to capture.
