Black hole photo proves space is just as emo as we are

  • The world it seems is soon to see the first

Scientists in Europe and Japan streamed separate briefings in Brussels and Tokyo.

The picture will be the first time an image has been snapped of the mysterious, swirling phenomenon deep in our galaxy. "I have seen many handsome, detailed images of black holes - but all were just simulations. It is an absolute monster, the heavyweight champion of black holes in the Universe".

Researchers said that Sagittarius A* was too "active" to capture a clear picture, but the M87 blackhole - which measures 40 billion km across - was more photogenic. Telescopes in Hawaii, Arizona, Chile, Mexico, Spain and the South Pole participated in the ambitious research project. This black hole now sits about 55 million light-years away in galaxy M87.

A supermassive black hole with millions to billions times the mass of our sun is seen in an undated NASA artist's concept illustration.

Black holes are areas in space where gravity is so strong that nothing - not even light - can escape them.

They created the image of a black hole by compiling data from eight earth-based telescopes positioned around the world. This monumental feat has been made possible by EHT's eight ground-based radio telescopes positioned throughout the world, coming together in an worldwide collaboration.

Dong Lai, astronomy professor and black hole expert at Cornell University believes that the EHT team is gearing up for a big reveal.

It's been a great year so far for space fans, with a partial solar eclipse, super blood wolf moon eclipse, and a Venus and Jupiter conjunction wowing onlookers.

"I am not involved in the EHT, so I haven't seen any of the results, but I am excited to see them!" This light is expected to bend around the event horizon to create a lopsided, glowing ring, which researchers are hoping to see for the first time. Black holes form from remnants of a large star that dies in a supernova explosion. How do you take a picture of something that does not emit light?

Fortunately, more telescopes have joined the campaign over the past couple of years, and astronomers are working on ways to improve their data processing methods.

In essence, the EHT scientists photographed the shadow of the black hole cast by the accretion disc.
