Yesterday on 10th of April 2019 at 6:30PM IST , world got the official first ever black hole image that has been taken after 2 years of hard work by the Scientists from all over the world forming a collaboration from various parts of the world to make this real.
FIRST EVER IMAGE OF BLACK HOLE
As told to the news by HEINO FALCKE, the chairman of Event Horizon Telescope , as we have been thinking of it for more than 20 years how this could be possible as now it is a dream come true.
WHY IT IS DREAM COME TRUE
Well we all have heard that black hole is nothing , which means nothing light, sound, any material cannot pass through it , even the time stands still , the time stops in a black hole.
ABOUT THIS BLACK HOLE CAPTURED
The black hole is 300 million trillion miles away from our planet well that is a big deal , but there is more to tell as the size of this black hole is 3.3 million times the size of the earth, so imagine how powerful it could be!
8 TELESCOPES TOGETHER WORKED TO CAPTURE THE BLACK HOLE
ALMA – CHILE, SMA-HAWAII, SPT-SOUTH POLE, SMT- ARIZONA, PV- SPAIN, JCMT-HAWAII, LMT-MEXICO, APEX-CHILE
All collaborated from around the world to make this effort of capturing this image of black hole that is real and official.
HOW THESE TELESCOPES WORKED TOGETHER
These 8 telescopes collaborated around the world making such a connection that it made its own planet earth a giant telescope to capture the most probable, sharpest, crisp and clearest image of the black hole.
EVENT HORIZON TELESCOPE
The network of these 8 telescopes in combination was given this name EHT which worked to capture the image we all have been waiting for and as the waiting is over we can officially say this is it.
