The First Ever Photo Of A Blackhole!

It was released just a few hours ago today. It was taken by the Event Horizon Telescope. They call it the first direct photograph actually, because the other images have all been photographs of the anomalous behavior of the Space surrounding them. I also don't think that the others are true photos either, rather they're visual representations of data collected from various frequencies beamed into Deep Space and reflected back to us off the objects they encounter out there--similar to radar, sonar, echolocation, or reading seismic reflection.

This is an actual photograph though--dealing only in light.

how cool is that

The telescope array collected 5,000 trillion bytes of data over two weeks, which was processed through supercomputers so that the scientists could retrieve the images.

That’s pretty damn awesome. Looks like an orange glazed donut.

Turns out the Lord of the Rings was historical, not fantasy......

Re: The First Ever Photo Of A Blackhole!

I'd have posted the first picture of my ex's Black Hole years ago, but DR doesn't allow pornography. That's a shame, because that's more like horror than porn.
