2019 was the year when the first image of a black hole was formulated by an MIT researcher. A work of several years and inputs of several people and departments, the image was eventually given a face and appearance in a physical sense in April 2019. The image was revolutionary as it was made by the light that was gathered by the telescopes spread over a large area across the globe, on several continents that was only a factor of many things that contributed to making the first image of a black hole. Laws of physics that were described by scientists such as Albert Einstein was taken into consideration while understanding the working and the model of a black hole.

BLACK HOLE PHOTON RING ** Above right the very famous EVENT HORIZON TELESCOPE image of April 2019 of the BLACK HOLE OF M87, 55 million light years, located in the center of the Virgo Galaxy. INFINITE RINGS OF LIGHT SURROUND THE CENTRAL SHADOW … In the journal Science Advances a research conducted by the Harward-Smithsonian Central American Astrophysics group coordinated by M.Jonhson has identified these rings of light … see picture. So what do we see? A shadow that eats the light … the Black Hole of (Virgo A) M87 has a mass of 2 million of billions than the one of the EARTH …. It is immersed in an ocean of INCANDESCENT PLASMA …. Photons are attracted to the chasm gravitational and their trajectory is deflected .. The torsion they undergo near the HORIZON OF EVENTS makes it difficult for them to make the PHOTONIC SPHERE ((means that in that region of space-time of maximum gravity they are forced to move within orbits) )) 🥵🥵Thus they make a line, half a ring, a ring, more rings … according to their distance from the event horizon … and so infinite images of orbits are superimposed more and more complete and clearer for the OBSERVER as they move away from the event horizon. So the image of EVENT HORIZON TELESCOPE is an OVERLAP OF AN IMMENSE NUMBER OF RINGS OF LIGHT OVERLAPPED AND INCREASINGLY SHARER AS THEY MOVE AWAY FROM THE HORIZON OF EVENTS TO REACH THE OBSERVER Studying these rings can be traced back to the SPIN of the MASS and the BLACK HOLE Credit Focusuniverse.com///George Wong (UIUC) and Michael Johnson CFA///astronomiamo.it ** Like, share and Comment ** Follow @glamour_physics Follow @glamour_physics Follow @glamour_physics for More Amazing Stuff About Space, Science & Physics ** Follow @astro._.era for More Amazing Stuff About Space, Science & Physics ** #physics #astrophysics #fisica #astronomylovers #cosmos #quantumphysics #astrophysicslover #stars #universe #elonmusk #astronomy #spacescience #space #earth #science #nikolatesla #astronomyfacts #galaxy #blackhole #cosmologo #universetoday #blackholes #blackholeimage #m87 #m87blackhole #energy #lightyear #lightyears #photon #photonature
What was the revelations with the image that was made?
The image that was formed had proved several concepts of science such as the general theory of relativity among the others. With a precision of 17%, the law was enforced and stood to hold true. This was something that lit the entire department of astronomy and made scientists jump in excitement due to the fact that something that was not thought of existing at the presence of singularity had taken place and had shown proofs of its existence as well.

This blurry image of supermassive black hole M87* was taken by the EHT collaboration on April 11th 2017, and released on April 10th 2019. It is the first of its kind and shows the shadow of a black hole; which is the closest we can ever come to an image of the black hole itself. The blurriness of the image is attributed to the fact that the black hole is extremely far away and imaging it could only be achieved using multiple telescopes and teams working together. M87* is located at the center of the elliptical galaxy Messier 87, 55 million light years away (~520 billion billion km), and its mass is estimated to be around 7 billion times that of our Sun. Supported by international collaboration, the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) is a planet-scale array of eight ground-based radio telescopes designed to capture images of a black hole. Although they are not physically connected, they are able to synchronize their recorded data with atomic clocks, which precisely time their observations. To achieve this image, each telescope of the EHT produced enormous amounts of data (~350terabytes/day) which was stored on high-performance helium-filled hard drives. These data were flown to highly specialized supercomputers at the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy and MIT Haystack Observatory to be combined. They were then painstakingly converted into an image using novel computational tools developed by the collaboration. . . #quarkeyeview #qev #qevastronomy #qevfacts #science #cosmos #universe #astronomy #space #blackhole #blackholes #interstellar #eventhorizon #accretiondisc #spacetime #gravity #stars #photonsphere #messier87 #m87 #EHT #singularity #facts #factoftheday #instascience #instafacts #instafollow #instafollowers
This was a fact that shook the world of science and astronomy and gave chills down the spine of people when they realized that it was true. Black Holes had proved something that was thought and only formulated in numerical and mathematical expressions. Every day new discoveries that take place surprise us with the time passing and with new expressions being formed. Let science make the revelations when there exists a state of confusion.
