First Photo of a Black Hole Was Made! This Marks The Beginning of a New Era!

The first true photograph of a Black Hole was released. To do this, scientists from all around the world have established a global network of telescopes. The Black Hole, for instance, is three million times the size of our planet and is located 50 million light-years away in the Messier 87 galaxy.

The Event Horizon Telescope was responsible for this remarkable achievement (EHT). This achievement is significant because, for the first time in history, scientists captured a photograph of something previously considered to be unseeable, since, as we all know, Black Holes absorb their own light, making them nearly hard to detect.

This Black Hole contains “6.5 billion times the mass of our Sun,” according to reports. To give you a sense of the size of this “monster,” it is far larger than Neptune’s orbit, which takes 200 years to complete around the Sun. What do you think about that?

The image recorded by the EHT is destined to become one of the most significant photos ever taken, and it might usher in a new era in space travel.

Let’s not forget that the mission to image and study a black hole began in 2015. In 2017, a network of massive telescopes began studying both black holes for ten days on and off. A year later, in 2018, another telescope captured nearly twice as much data as the previous one had in 2017.
