Here is the first ever image of a black hole

At the Event Horizon Astrophysicists Set to Reveal First

He explained the fiery ring of light seen around the black hole in the image, noting that it comprised photons moving through "the most extreme environment in the known universe" as they attempted to travel around the black hole powering the M87 galaxy 53 million light years away from Earth.

Using a global network of telescopes to see "the unseeable", an worldwide scientific team on Wednesday announced a milestone in astrophysics - the first-ever photo of a black hole - in an achievement that validated a pillar of science put forward by Albert Einstein more than a century ago.

The first goal of the Event Horizon Telescope project was to capture a photo of the black hole.

Black holes are phenomenally dense celestial entities with gravitational fields so powerful no matter or light can escape, making them extraordinarily hard to observe despite their great mass. These conferences will be held in different languages, starting at 13.00 Universal Time, April 10. t is a groundbreaking discovery which will take place in Japan, Denmark, Belgium, US, Tokyo, Spain and Taiwan.

The world is going to hear a major black hole news on Wednesday. While astronomers have been talking about "dark stars" since 1700s, the community eventually speculated that these bright spots were in fact "black holes", with American physicist John Archibald Wheeler coming out with the term in the mid-1960s. Scientists now believe that black holes exist in the centers of all galaxies and can grow to be millions or billions times the size of our sun, according to the National Science Foundation.

Nissan Shareholders Approve Dismissal Of Carlos Ghosn
Ghosn's wife Carole Ghosn has left Japan for France, where she plans to appeal to the French government to help her husband. Instead, a video statement will be shown on Tuesday, said Japan's Foreign Correspondent's Club.

Why have we not been been able to see a black hole until now? "The result is a gravitational field so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape".

As Broderick noted, this is not the first test that general relativity has passed; the theory has survived many challenges over the past 100 years.

This computer-simulated image from NASA predicts what a supermassive black hole at the center of a galaxy may look like. They are the densest objects we know of so in most cases it is really hard to resolve them in an image. But black holes also dramatically affect their surrounding space, most obviously by creating an accretion disk - the swirl of gas and material that rapidly orbits their singularities.

By using all eight observatories, scientist effectively made the Earth into one giant space eye - one that may give us our first real glimpse of a black hole.

Sagittarius A* is our closest black hole, but "closest" is a relative term.
