First Image of a Black Hole

 

Scientists have obtained the first image of a black hole, using Event Horizon Telescope observations of the center of the galaxy M87.

The image shows a bright ring formed as light bends in the intense gravity around a black hole that is 6.5 billion times more massive than the Sun.

This long-sought image provides the strongest evidence to date for the existence of supermassive black holes and opens a new window onto the study of black holes, their event horizons, and gravity.
