We managed to get a picture and it's only 53 million light-years away ;-)

"2-year-long effort to zoom in on the singularity. It reveals. for the first time, the contours of a black hole's event horizon, the point beyond which no light or matter escapes."

People do understand it is impossible to take a picture of something 53 million light years away :-roll Why do people still believe this!

It's all lies, not even a real image. It's a computer generated mock up of what they think it looks like from the data they created :-jack the picture is useless it means nothing.


Is this an actual photograph?

No, not in the traditional sense. "It is difficult to make an image with radio waves," Crew said. The mission scientists measured radio waves being emitted from the black hole's event horizon :-roll and then processed that information with a computer to make the image that you see.


How did scientists capture this image?

Over 200 astronomers around the world took the measurements using eight ground-based radio telescopes collectively known as the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT). These telescopes are typically located at high-altitude sites such as volcanoes in Hawaii and Mexico, mountains in Arizona and the Spanish Sierra Nevada, the Atacama Desert and Antarctica, according to a statement from the National Science Foundation.

In April 2017, the astronomers synchronized all the telescopes to take measurements of radio waves being emitted from the event horizon of the black hole, all at the same time. Synchronizing the telescopes was akin to creating an Earth-size telescope with an impressive resolution of 20 microarcseconds — enough to read a newspaper in the hands of a New Yorker all the way from a cafe in Paris, according to the statement. (In comparison, the black hole they imaged is about 42 microarcseconds across).

They then took all these raw measurements, analyzed them and combined them into the image that you see.

So not a picture of it at all


You really think they can even measure radio waves

three hundred eleven quintillion, five hundred sixty-seven quadrillion, one hundred forty-five trillion miles away :-hehe

Also how do they know the colour of it from radio waves? that is impossible :-lol

I synchronised all the telescopes I own and managed to also get a picture of a black hole. This work took me a total of five years to complete but it was worth the wait.

It looks so majestic and beautiful :-geek :-nerd
