First ever image of black hole revealed

The world it seems is soon to see the first

In a truly supermassive deal, the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) team unveiled the first-ever image of a black hole at six simultaneous news conferences around the world.

Additionally, the network of telescopes made use of the technique called very-long-baseline interferometry (VLBI) which can sync all the telescopes around the world to form one massive telescope by altering Earth's rotation. "The gravitational pull bends the light into this sphere shape". "We're seeing the unseeable".

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.

Scientists said the discovery "pushes the boundaries of modern science". "This makes us confident about the interpretation of our observations, including our estimation of the black hole's mass".

According to NASA, a black hole is a "place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can not get out".

The real-world significance of the image is for astronomists to parse through, though.

As Broderick noted, this is not the first test that general relativity has passed; the theory has survived many challenges over the past 100 years. After all, that's what Albert Einstein had predicted a century ago.

This is the first photo ever captured of a black hole.

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. A light year is the distance light travels in a year, 5.9 trillion miles (9.5 trillion km).

"By definition, a black hole per se can not be seen, and never will be".

The excitement is because they have observed two black holes, the one at the centre of our own galaxy, and the other more massive black hole at the centre of the galaxy M87.

Though both exciting and surprising, the photograph closely matched the theoretical predictions of black hole experts and the computer models they've designed. And now, the National Science Foundation (NSF) is holding a press conference to announce that project's "groundbreaking result".

Chances are scientists have something big to show us or they wouldn't be making such a big deal about it. But the person would never be heard from again.

Astronomers eventually began to realise the bright spots were in fact black holes (a term coined in the 1960s). Some were created by artists, and others were based on data gathered from telescopes. Completing the image was an enormous undertaking, involving an global team of scientists, supercomputers and hundreds of terabytes of data.
