This is the first image of a black hole that all of humanity, Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking was waiting for.
This image taken at Galaxy M87 (NGC 4486, Virgo A, Virgo A) is a massive elliptical galaxy and strong source of radio radiation located in the constellation Virgo, located 55 million light-years from Earth. In the image of a black hole in the final stages of swallowing a star, the images are not as round as imagined, possibly due to its rotation period. Scientists took the image for several days but it did not change shape, the image was taken by many telescopes around the world to produce the image you see.
Thanks to this photo and research by scientists, it was confirmed that black holes are a real existence and Albert Einstein’s predictions are correct, the theories have come true, not just on paper, which has been proven experimentally, and we hope that on the basis of this result can shed light on many other issues and open up a new future for astronomy.
It is hoped that many more black holes will be observed to clarify the problems of astrophysics during this brilliant stage of development.
