Today, scientists from the Event Horizon Telescope shared the first black hole photo and changed the history of astronomy.
This is the first-ever image of a black hole. The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), which use a network of telescopes around the world. They’re using 8 networks of telescopes to take an image shows the large black hole in the center of the neighbor galaxy called M87. Which is 55 million light-years away this means 55 million years ago. However, this is 500 million trillion km away from the earth. A team of 200 scientists pointed the networked telescopes towards M87 and scanned its heart over a period of 10 days and keep continue to work for new discoveries.
M87 is about 6.5 billion times the mass of the sun, and about 100 billion kilometers wide by the sun. This is which could easily swallow our solar system. In addition, this is about 22 times the average distance between Neptune and the Sun. Also, the Event Horizon Telescope aired this cosmic object’s photo during a live news conference on YouTube for that special situation. And the EHT researchers have been observing two black holes someone of this. The other the giant one at the center of our galaxy, Sagittarius A, is a little bit closer but harder to observe.
This photo doesn’t affect the laws of physics. The image is consistent with general relativity rules. However, it will open up new horizons in the improvement of these rules. And Stephen Hawking radiation theory is very difficult to prove experimentally or observationally and has never been observed yet. Now this theory is just a theoretical quantum effect.
What is a black hole?
A black hole is a region of space from which nothing, not even light, can escape. The theory of general relativity predicts that a sufficiently compact mass can deform spacetime to form a black hole.
