First Image of a Black Hole!

The Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration observed the supermassive black hole at the center of M87, finding the dark central shadow in accordance with General Relativity, further demonstrating the power of this 100 year-old theory.
To understand more about why the shadows look the way they do, check out: frdownload.net/item/vid%C3%A9o-zUyH3XhpLTo.html
I will continue updating this description with more links.

    I am not schooled but can someone tell me if we know Cygnus to be a black hole at a distance of 6000 light years, why where observations made toward M87 at 55 Million light years, why was it 'easier' to observe at such a vaster distance?

    I’m not really educated on this subject but from learning about space, I’ve learned when we look into space were actually looking into the past so since this black hole is 35 millions light years away wouldn’t it be possible that this black hole doesn’t even exist??

    The logic of light being absolutely trapped, would indicate a gradual fade of light getting closer to the core, yet we only see pitch black at the very core, this would mean the stars are being distinguished as it smacks the compressed core (even gas escapes) and everything recycles into a stream of energy light at the polar ends recreating the galaxy that is vs the " big bang" law act, or that Black Holes became the evolution act alternative to an entire universe imploding and forcing itself back into the "big bank effect"

    3 months after the photograph of the black hole came out, scientist discover another black hole that challenges everything that they thought they knew about black holes..thus making their approach to translating the data here irrelevant..aaand, we're back to "umm, we don't know yet".. maybe the real science in astrophysics is tricking millionaire investors in to funding a nice desk job allowing those involved to play with telescopes in the a/c for a living. "Ummm, I don't know"..

    Actually, still we have not taken any picture of any black hole , we just got the image of the light ring around the black hole. We will never get a picture of a black hole because black holes are black dots in the black space. And black holes leave no light outside to capture them.

    It's really sad to think that most of the people here are really glad that there was a blackhole sited nearby our galaxy yet this would also mean that this might be the end of our humanity once it's done cosuming everything that surrounds it and start consuming our whole galaxy.. RN, it is feeding itself and continue growing

    Gabriel Afonso, I don’t think belief in angels should be considered “dumb,” as it ties heavily into coping with grief, spiritualism, and religion. If anything, Americans are (perhaps naïvely) optimistic. However... There are some beliefs that are simply silly. Such as 57% believing in precursor civilizations like Atlantis, 35% believing aliens came to Earth in modern times, 26% believing that some people have telekinesis, and 21% believing that Bigfoot exists.

    if time was manipulatable wouldn't someone had already manipulated it. The fact that no one has ever come back to change history proves time travel is never accomplished. Tell me the sense in never coming back to tell us "hey we learned to manipulate time. Here's a cure to cancer, space colonization, and a recipe to end world hunger." The word spacetime belongs in science fiction. Oh you see light bending around an object, congratulations. Same thing happens when you look at images through a drop of water, or bubble in water. One might protest h2o is clear, congratulations, you've proven other molecules at a great distance may resemble what water appears to us up close and personal. Refractions and light glares come on you're looking at images through a lens zoomed in thousands of times.

    adfasdfas sdfasdfsadf, I’m not sure if you heard correctly what spacetime is. Under our current understanding of physics and spacetime, it is not possible to travel backwards in time. So that question you raised does not necessarily devalue the viewpoint.
