Humanity gets its first glimpse of a black hole

  • The world it seems is soon to see the first

The second one - M87 - inhabits the center of the neighboring Virgo A galaxy, boasting a mass 3.5 billion times that of the sun and located 54 million light-years away from Earth.

The European Southern Observatory, one of the contributors, said the technique involves combining the data from the telescopes around the world to create a "virtual giant telescope".

"This is an extraordinary scientific feat accomplished by a team of more than 200 researchers", EHT project director Sheperd Doeleman said in a news release.

The "monster" black hole measures 40 billion kilometers (~25 billion miles) across - that's almost 29,000 Suns - and is located 500 million trillion kilometers (~311 million trillion miles) away at the heart of the Messier 87 galaxy, a massive galaxy in the "nearby" Virgo galaxy cluster. It is more than six times bigger than the sun.

The image of the dark circle surrounded by a ring of hot gas made history.

Black holes are monstrous celestial entities exerting gravitational fields so vicious that no matter or light can escape.

Scientists have said that this image provides the strongest evidence so far that supermassive black holes exist.

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

Over two legs, though, United are on a prayer and I doubt that even die-hard supporters expect them to progress. He's a Man United player. "I think the club has always been one of the biggest in Europe".


Media have been told to gather for press conferences in Brussels, Washington, Santiago, Shanghai, Taipei, Tokyo, and Lyngby in Denmark that are due to begin at around 2pm BST.

The project was established in 2012 by dozens of institutions around the world, with the goal of developing a way of capturing an elusive black hole.

Scientists were able to verify what they were seeing after the black hole's shadow persisted over multiple independent EHT observations.

"It's a dream come true, on many levels", Ozel said.

This is the first-ever image of a black hole. They drastically warp the fabric of space-time and anything that passes too close gets sucked into it be it a wandering star or a photon of light.

What do we see in the image? .

Scientists may show us something Wednesday morning that we've never seen before - a picture of a black hole.

Three years ago, scientists used highly sensitive observing equipment to pick up the sound of two smaller black holes coming together to create a gravitational wave.
