The picture shows a halo of dust and gas, tracing the outline of a colossal black hole, at the heart of the Messier 87 galaxy, 55m light years from Earth. The equations predicted that, beyond a certain threshold, when too much matter or energy is concentrated in one place, space and time collapse, leaving behind a sinkhole through which light and matter can enter but not escape. At first these were thought to be mathematical oddities, rather than real astronomical objects, but in the past century overwhelming evidence has confirmed that black holes are out there.
Q: If the gravity of a black hole is so strong that nothing can escape from it, not even light, how has the Hubble Space Telescope recorded images of gas jets ejected from black holes?
By Victoria Bell For Mailonline. Scientists have hinted that they might have captured the first ever image of a black hole in the Milky Way. Astronomers now claim to have captured 'spectacular' data during observations, that may include the first ever image of a black hole's silhouette. Image of the object would become 'one of the most iconic' ever created by scientists, say researchers.
