The astronomer showed the first photo of a shadow of a black hole


The picture was received by Event Horizon Telescope observatory. It is located in the center of the galaxy M87. The scientist Heino Falcke from the university of Nijmegen in the Netherlands showed the first photo of "shadow" of a black hole. The picture of the celestial body located in the center of the galaxy M87 was received by means of virtual observatory Event Horizon Telescope. About it it is noted on Twitter page of the scientist. "I never believed that the black hole in the galaxy of M87 has so big sizes as showed our calculations. When I saw this photo, I was personally convinced of it. Fire ring which can be seen in this picture is generated by the huge force of gravitation of this object", - the astronomer noted. This black hole is located in 50 light years from Earth, and its diameter is 30 billion kilometers. The mass of a hole exceeds solar in 6.5 billion times. It is considered one of the heaviest in the Universe. This is M87 * and this the first image of a black hole! Mass is 6.5 Billion suns within size of a solar system. Precious because real. Waited 25 years for this. Dark shadow is where light disappears in #eventhorizon. We see something never seen before. #blackhole #JustWow #EHT pic.twitter.com/3nCosTzyER — Heino Falcke (@hfalcke) on April 10, 2019. Astronomers could record visible borders of a black hole graphically. For this purpose combined 10 radio telescopes, and data united in one image. Supermassive black holes, according to astronomers, are located in the centers of all galaxies. These are objects which mass is millions and billions of the Sun. In the Milky Way such black hole is in a condition of hibernation. Astronomers try to understand when she fell asleep and as far as she was active in the past. "As with all great discoveries this is just the beginning" says @EHTelescope director Shep Doeleman #EHTblackhole https://t.co/RjpPjXDt0a pic.twitter.com/ulngkjkNcz — Physics World (@PhysicsWorld) on April 10, 2019. According to the theory of relativity, a shadow of black holes it is similar to the dark circle surrounded with a half moon. However a number of scientists considered that holes can represent not singularities where matter, and the so-called "mole holes" completely disappears. This research of scientists disproved this hypothesis and proved that they are not some kind of "tunnels" connecting two points located in different regions of space and time. Earlier it was reported that in the Milky Way scientists found huge "exhaust pipes" through which surplus of energy is thrown out. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
