Les presento emocionada el corazón de nuestra galaxia! La primera imagen del agujero negro supermasivo Sagitario A* en el centro de nuestra Vía Láctea: 4 millones de veces la masa del Sol, 30 veces su diámetro a una distancia 25 de mil años luz. #AgujeroNegro @ehtelescope Image
@ehtelescope "Las imágenes de estos dos agujeros (M87 & Sag A*) lucen muy similares. Esta similitud revela un aspecto clave de los agujeros negros. No importa su tamaño o el ambiente en el que habitan, una vez que llegamos al borde de un agujero negro, la gravedad toma el control" #EHT Image
Disfruten este viaje desde ALMA en Chile hasta Sagitario A* en el centro de la Vía Láctea! #BlackHole #AgujeroNegro

🛰 #Hubble30 descubre en #Henize 2-10 (una galaxia enana situada a 30M años luz de distancia) un AGUJERO NEGRO "CREADOR DE ESTRELLAS".

Ha capturado una clara imagen de la conexión entre el agujero negro y una región vecina de formación estelar que dista a unos 230M años luz.
"La agencia espacial de EE.UU. compara esa “conexión” entre el agujero negro y la región de formación estelar con un flujo de gas que se extiende por el espacio igual que “un cordón umbilical hacia una brillante guardería estelar”.

nature.com/articles/s4158…
La #NASA aclara que, “Los datos del #Hubble sobre la velocidad del flujo de salida del agujero negro, así como la edad de las estrellas jóvenes, indican una relación causal entre los dos. Hace unos millones de años, la salida de gas caliente se estrelló contra la densa nube de +

1./ Just imagine a collaboration between @prism_protocol and @ApolloDAO. All mAssets, $LUNA, $ANC, $MIR, $MINE and way more tokens split into yield bearing tokens and principal tokens, all pooled against $PRISM and made available in auto compounding vaults on @ApolloDAO
2./ The only thing you have to do is deposit $UST at @ApolloDAO and everything else will be taken care of behind the scenes. This would be so user friendly and create so much value for $PRISM at the same time...
3./ Keeping in mind that they're also planning to integrate other cross chain assets like $SOL, $ATOM and $ETH, @prism_protocol is going to attract an unbelievable amount of value. It's literally a #BlackHole.

A #BlackHole warped space-time so much that astronomers saw flashes of light from its far side

#discovery #space @KIPAC1

businessinsider.in/science/news/a… Image
@KIPAC1 For the first time, scientists have seen the light behind a black hole.

Because no light can pass through a #BlackHole and come out the other side, the discovery further confirms #AlbertEinstein's theory that massive objects, like black holes and neutron stars, warp space.
@KIPAC1 This particular black hole, 800 million light-years away, was distorting space so much that astronomers could see X-ray explosions flashing behind it.

A new cosmic map has suggested that the #Earth is spiralling 2,000 light-years closer to the #BlackHole located at the centre of our #MilkyWay galaxy.Dont worry,our planet is not plunging into the black hole soon as it is still thousands of light-years away from the black hole.
The new map constructed by the #astronomers from the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ) is developed using data collected over the past 15 years. It places #Earth just 25,800 light-years away from the centre of the galaxy where the #BlackHole resides.

Astronomers Spot Six Galaxies Trapped Around Supermassive #BlackHole in Spider Web-Like Structure - by @MrigDixit

weather.com/en-IN/india/sp…

(📸: ESO/L. Calçada)
Nothing can escape the powerful cosmic monster black holes—not even light—due to its strong gravitational pull that attracts nearly everything around the region.

#BlackHole
But for the first time, astronomers have spotted six galaxies trapped around a supermassive black hole, appearing to form a spider web-like structure.

A collision in #space revealed a #blackhole that physicists thought could never exist. The observatory that detected it cracked a 100-year-old mystery posed by #Einstein.

businessinsider.in/science/news/a…
Seven billion years ago, two black holes crashed into each other and merged into one enormous #blackhole with the mass of 142 suns.
The collision reverberated through space and time, and these ripples — a phenomenon called gravitational waves first predicted by #AlbertEinstein — traveled 16.5 billion light-years through the universe, reaching #Earth in May 2019.

A year ago today, we unveiled the M87 #BlackHole image by @ehtelescope! We were so proud to finally share our hard work (by 300+ scientists & engineers) with the rest of the world! Let me tell you a little bit about the crazy journey to get here

#OTD #BlackHole1year 🥳
@ehtelescope uses the technique of very long baseline interferometry to achieve the resolution necessary to see a black hole 55 million light-years away! We synchronized 📡📡 around the world, and synthesized a virtual telescope the size of Earth!
cr. @TheNRAO
The possibility to see the shadow of a black hole with VLBI was first put forward by my advisor, @hfalcke, back in 2000. At just the right radio wavelength, the gas flow around the black hole would be thin enough to peer down into the darkness!

1. The idea of ​​this thread is inspired by a very amiable dialogue with @bfeinner


This will be a thread about #blackhole. That a black hole is actually not what we are used to imagining and discussing.
2. Have you ever wondered why artists depict a black hole in the form of a black sphere? Moreover, exactly spherical black holes are considered by well serious researchers in the models.
This is a stereotype transferred from another familiar celestial bodies: stars and planets. Image
3. Stars and planets have a spherical shape because they are in hydrostatic balance between the compressive gravity and the repulsion force of the substance they are composed.
However, the black hole is not in balance: its gravitational force exceeds all repulsive forces.

So frustrating to #know the answer to the question of how to formulate that #TheoryOfEverything #scientists say is the biggest unsolved problem in #physics, yet they don't even want to look at it:

tuks.nl/wiki/index.php…

Wave-particle duality a #mystery?
What I've found is rather astonishing:

The #mathematics used by #Maxwell are inconsistent.

He left the magnetic vector potential field [A] undefined and decoupled from the #medium thus creating #MaxwellsHole, which introduced an unwarrented #gauge #freedom in the model...
It is this #gauge #freedom thst led to the #hack known as #Quantum #Madness.

Really, it doesn't take a PhD to figure out that when you believe particles can exist at two places at the same time, you have a mental problem.

1/3. On the left the photo from nasa of the #BlackHole. On the right, my photo of the black hole. ⁦@NASA⁩ says it was really hard and took millions years and millions in equipment to Capture. Mine took ten minutes. Image
2/3The photo before we got it right. Image
3/3 the first photo before we added the orange light. I am on to you @NASA, you can do better than a photo of a blurry donut. I am beginning to wonder now about the moon walk. :) Image

We at @MIT_CSAIL are so proud of the role our alum Dr. Katie Bouman played in the development of the first-ever picture of a black hole. She's been psyched about all the #blackhole interest & just wanted to clarify a few things. (1/7)
In our first tweet about this, we linked to a 2016 story about an algorithm she led the development of while at CSAIL. That algorithm was intended to take a picture of a black hole, but didn’t create the final image. (cont.)(2/7)
It inspired image validation procedures in the final paper, and the EHT team together developed new methods that were used in reconstructing the black hole image.(3/7)

Yoo sobat #brosismks Foto lubang hitam atau black hole baru-baru ini menjadi pembicaraan dan di Google menjadi trending. Temuan foto lubang hitam kali ini memang benar oleh #KatieBouman
Tahun 1784, filsuf dan pionir astronomi John Michell menggagas adanya sebuah benda yang begitu besar di alam semesta. #KatieBouman #BlackHole
Sekitar 200 tahun kemudian lewat teori relativitas yang digagas Einstein, sejumlah ilmuwan menekuni gagasan itu dan mengatakan bahwa obyek itu memang ada dan begitu misterius sehingga apa pun bisa terisap olehnya. Dan itulah #blackhole

First ever direct image of a black hole! The supermassive black hole in the galaxy M87 -- 6.5 billion times as massive as the Sun! #EHT #BlackHole The image is better than I expected! A glowing ring, brighter on the bottom, with a dark region in the middle
How was this image created? A giant global network of radio/millimeter-wave telescopes joined together to create a virtual PLANET-SIZED telescope. The image is patched together from the data from all of these. #EHT #BlackHole (image: Akiyama et al and ApJL) Globe with six telescope sites labelled and with lines drawn between them. Acronyms on image: JCMT, SMA, SMT, LMT, PV, APEX, ALMA, SPT.
There's a brief write-up at @PhysicsWorld here: physicsworld.com/a/first-images… with more images. Here's the image seen (left) compared with a simulation (middle) and the simulation blurred to the expected resolution of the telescope (right). (Image via Akiyama et al & ApJL) Blurry image as seen, left. (It looks like a fuzzy bright donut.) Center has a swirly sharp image with a bright ring and a dark hole in the middle, with a label of the scale showing 40 micro-arcseconds. Then on the right is the simulation image blurred so that it looks pretty much exactly like the observed image.
