First ever black hole photo revealed

Black holes have been theoretical until today. But Einstein has been proven correct again (so far). After two years of setting up and taking readings with the Event Horizon Telescope (a telescope whose data is taken by 8 massive telescopes all around the world effectively rendering a "lens" as big as the entire planet, albeit with some understandably missing data) a photo of the super massive black hole of galaxy M87 was released. M87's black hole is the biggest one we know about being over 5 billion times larger than our sun. The EHT is also attempting to take a photo of Sagittarius A*, the black hole at the center of our own galaxy. This is beyond exciting! I have it on my FB history 2 years ago that they were starting this project so it's really cool to see the results finally!

pretty amazing

Black hole of the film Interstellar looks similar.
Must be why they said the movie has one of the most accurate blackhole design

They had a lot of very specific information and advice from a scientist consultant for Interstellar. Don't remember the guy's name but I guess he's prolific and knows his stuff.

Not him. He's not a scientist. He's just an overblown overated engineer.

I'm not sure how flying into a black hole without the atoms on your body being ripped apart hundreds of miles before even approaching it is scientifically accurate.

They mean visually accurate, is not like someone would depict spaghettification in a G or PG Hollywood movie anyway.

I see some obvious charge effects in that image. Where does charge fit into these equations?

Haha I know. It's a great movie with great visuals and sound work. But the narrative obviously has serious scientific flaws. Nolan had to be convinced out of writing a scene with light-speed travel at one point. (And for the record, it's rated PG13)

Stellar black holes according to scientists will cause spaghettification to a human of getting near it.

While supermassive black holes wont cause spaghettification

They should have used the Huawei P30 Pro to take this picture.

To save money they just used Pewdiepie's camera.

What you're seeing is more likely to be the black hole spinning and material ejecting from the two poles.

If you look really close you may be able to spot Matthew Mcconaughey. ;)

potatoe potato

a quick quaternion review, what's further, us to the event horizon, or event horizon to center?

because scientists like to sound smart when they don't really know.

Give a woman terabytes of data and this is all she can come up with.

well probably size and how far singularity is much closer to the Schwarzschild radius compare to the larger one (supermassive blackholes).

The point at which tidal forces destroy an object or kill a person will depend on the black hole's size. For a supermassive black hole, such as those found at a galaxy's center, this point lies within the event horizon, so an astronaut may cross the event horizon without noticing any squashing and pulling, although it remains only a matter of time, as once inside an event horizon, falling towards the center is inevitable. For small black holes whose Schwarzschild radius is much closer to the singularity, the tidal forces would kill even before the astronaut reaches the event horizon.

Also more on the black holes

ITT: Hendricks266 gets triggered because I don't find a screenshot of an old Winamp visualization interesting.

Proving that black holes exist at all is an incredibly monumental feat.

Though I suppose it could be a giant planet with humongous rings?

This proves nothing.
Well not nothing, it reproves the current ignorance in physics.
