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:
I will continue updating this description with more links.

This is actually a vacuum cleaner design by God for the whole universe which clean unnecessary objects, planets, and galaxies from the universe but nothing will happen to earth the reason why because of new quantum physics law is now applying to our earth which means the earth is now in observation state compared to millions of years ago when no human or camera or Hubble was there so any Metroid or object coming to earth change its direction itself and missed. Keep in mind those Metroids always hit to the planet which has no observer.

*I see many comments about light year **** I calculated how many time light takes to travel 55million light year distance from black holes to Earth.* note:- actually 1light year is used for distance , not for time measurement which is =9.46×10^12km. = 9.4607 ×10^15m light traveller in 1year (approx365.25days)in vaccum at the speed of 3×10^8m/ we can calculate. time taken by light to travel 55millionlight years (=55×10^6×9.4607×10^15m distance)=distance travelled /speed =173.446167×10^13sec =approx5.5×10^7years. =5,50,00,000years time taken . What conclusion do u get from this?

It is ok now to use the word Billion to refer to thousands of millions instead of millions of millions?
Jose Rodriguez
Jose Rodriguez 16 klukkustundum síðan
+Gnome Ann, well, yes I am aware that for financial terms (what ever the reason) 1 billion = 1,000,000,000 but for science and maths (other than financial maths) it is common knowledge that 1 billion = 1,000,000,000,000 so it call my attention when it was used for this type of information, so I wonder if it is now being implemented in science. A billion used for a million millions sounds more natural for me, but if science is now shifting towards a thousand millions would be nice to know. Thank you :)
Gnome Ann
Gnome Ann 16 klukkustundum síðan
Jose Rodriguez, it is kind of weird, but depending on the location, 1 billion can equal one thousand millions, or a million millions. 1 billion = 1,000,000,000 1 billion = 1,000,000,000,000 I like the second one, but grew up using the first... overall, you can use either.

Question: If the black hole is the size of the solar system and the plasma around finishes one revolution once every 2 days, then isn't the plasma travelling faster than the speed of light? I hope somebody has the answer to this.

Nol Loren
Nol Loren Degi Síðan síðan
Yes, since the escape velocity is greater than the speed of light. So the "shadow is dark since light can't escape, and the orbitting plasma must be travelling faster than the speed of light, or it to would be sucked in (causing it to collapse i believe)

Wait a second. If the image was formed using radio waves, which are EM waves, therefore travelling at the speed of light, and the black hole is 53.5 Million light years away. Doesn't that mean the black hole we're looking at, is a black hole that existed 53.5 million years ago? I don't know the lifespan of the black hole but doesn't that mean it doesn't exist anymore? Due to hawking radiation... Someone comment on my thinking please.

2 years ago a report published the findings of infant stars as close as 3 light years from the alleged supermassive black hole, which was very puzzling for the scientists. They had found 11 low-mass stars forming in a region that would be impossible since the tidal forces driven by the supermassive black hole would be energetic enough to rip apart the clouds of gas and dust before they could form stars. In 2012 there was the report (and even pictures) of a gas cloud (called G2) that was headed for the alleged supermassive black hole and scientists were saying the black hole would tear it apart and consume it. In 2013 the gas cloud passed by the alleged supermassive black hole, completely unaffected by the event. Again, scientists were puzzled how the cloud could escape unaffected from such a short distance. How would these 2 happenings be possible if there was an actual supermassive black hole out there??? These kinds of very important contradiction to many areas of our "settled science" are often mentioned ONCE and then completely forgotten as if they never happened. Are they inconvenience to our "settled science"???

A black hole is a ball.Black holes constantly swallow substances, and they are also merging with another black holes,for example, in the future, our Milky Way shall merge with the Vega.Our Milky Way should have been merged with another galaxies many times.Each merger of the black holes emit gamma ray burst.Each time our Milky Way merges with another galaxies could have an influence on the Earth's creatures.As black holes constantly swallow substances and merge with another black holes, the qualities and temperatures of the black holes are constantly rising.When the explosive force inside the black hole is greater than the cohesive compression force (the critical point, it should be a constant), the black hole should explode.The black hole before the explosion was the singularity of the universe , and after the explosion, the new universe formed.We think the universe should be circulating like this.The size of each universe, that is, the size of the universe's space, is determined by the gravitational force of the black hole and should be a constant.
