First-Ever Black Hole Image Released
From USA Today today:
It’s our first glimpse of one of the weirdest spectacles in the universe. Astronomers on Wednesday released humanity’s first-ever image of a black hole.
“We have seen what we thought was unseeable. We have seen and taken a picture of a black hole,” said Sheperd Doeleman, Event Project Horizon project director of Harvard University. “This is an extraordinary scientific feat accomplished by a team of more than 200 researchers.”
This black hole resides 55 million light-years from Earth and has a mass 6.5 billion times that of the Sun.
