Scientists set to reveal first true image of black hole

The world is finally about to see a black hole’not an artist’s impression or a computer-generated likeness, but the real thing. : phys.org /news/2019-04- scientists - reveal -true-image- black .html The world is finally about to see a black hole —not an artist's impression or a computer-generated likeness, but the real thing.

At six press conferences across the globe scheduled for 1300 GMT (0900 ET) on Wednesday, scientists will unveil the first results from the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), conceived precisely for that purpose.

Of all the forces in the Universe that we cannot see’including dark energy and dark matter’none has frustrated human curiosity as thoroughly as the invisible, star-devouring monsters known as black holes.

At Long Last, a Glimpse of a Black Hole

This week we may get the first glimpse of what scientists have long been able only to theorize, calculate and simulate: the edge of a black hole. This is the so-called event horizon, beyond which even light cannot escape and where all known physical laws break down.

Astronomers who have created a global network of radio telescopes called the Event Horizon Telescope are expected to release images of this elusive and inscrutable astronomical object on Wednesday morning. : www.theglobeandmail.com scientists - set -to... Scientists set to reveal first-ever image of a black hole ... been with the project for more than a decade and is set to join his colleagues for what is expected to be a historic reveal . Black ... Such images would represent not only a major scientific accomplishment but also an opportunity to rethink the cosmos and our place in it.

Event Horizon Telescope Might Have Seen a Black Hole ‘ How Can That Change Our Understanding On The Universe?

The most captivating and beautiful objects discovered in the universe that inspired geniuses’ like Einstein, movies like Interstellar and loads of libraries of scientific research and also science fiction are black holes. : news.yahoo.com / scientists - set - reveal -first-true-image- black - hole -052848869.html A black hole is a celestial object that compresses a huge mass into an extremely small space. The more mass, the larger the black hole. At the same scale of compression, Earth's mass would fit inside a thimble, while the Sun's would be a mere six kilometres from edge to edge. Humans have never seen a black hole in spite of the incredible gravitation that holds them in our imagination, as well as our so far knowledge of physics.

That, however, might change as on Wednesday, today, an image of Sagittarius A, the supermassive black hole of our galaxy, could be released to the public. : www.bangkokpost.com/.../ scientists - set - to-reveal -first-true-image-of- black - hole Garden-variety black holes -- up to 20 times more massive than the Sun -- form when the centre of a very big star collapses in on itself. So-called supermassive black holes are at least a million ... Both science and technology made this historic moment possible by an array telescope spread across the Earth named Event Horizon Telescope.

Wait is over as first black hole picture will be revealed today

Among different forces in the Universe that we can’t see including dark energy and dark matter none has frustrated human curiosity as thoroughly as the invisible, star-devouring monsters known as black holes. : news.mb.com.ph/2019/04/10/ scientists - set - to-reveal -first-true-image-of- black - hole A black hole is a celestial object that compresses a huge mass into an extremely small space. The more mass, the larger the black hole. At the same scale of compression, Earth’s mass would fit inside a thimble, while the Sun’s would be a mere six kilometres from edge to edge. There are two types. Yet, the phenomena are so powerful that nothing nearby not even light can escape their gravitational pull.

Two candidates are vying to be in the first-ever image. Odds-makers favor Sagittarius A*, the black hole at the center of our own spiral galaxy, the Milky Way. Sag A* has four million times the mass of our Sun, and measures about 24 million Km across. That may sound like a big target, but for the telescope array on Earth some 26,000 light years (245 trillion Km) away, it’s like trying to photograph a golf ball on the Moon.

Scientists set to reveal first true image of black hole

“Over the years, we accumulated indirect observational evidence,” said Paul McNamara, an astrophysicist at the European Space Agency and project scientist for the LISA mission that will track massive black hole mergers from space.

In September 2015, for example, the LIGO gravitational wave detectors in the United States measured two black holes smashing together.

“X-rays, radio-waves, light -‘ they all point to very compact objects, and the gravitational waves confirmed that they really are black holes, even if we have never actually seen one,” McNamara told AFP.
