First ever real image of a black hole
« on: April 11, 2019, 12:44:18 am »
I love everything to do with space and it's too bad Stephen Hawking wasn't around to see this.





To collect the data used in the black hole image, the team gathered information from six locations - Antarctica, Chile, Mexico, Hawaii, Arizona, and Spain. By combining data from multiple places, researchers were able to build a system powerful enough to peer into the heart of a black hole. This one resides 55 million light years away from earth.

I saw this on the news yesterday.  SO COOL!  They said the black hole is the size of our entire solar system.   Black holes.... so strong that light and TIME cannot escape.  I can't imagine...

What I find really interesting is that a collision/merger of two black holes is the most powerful event in the universe. It releases more power than the rest of the universe combined.

You don't want to be anywhere near it when that happens
