    What it took to collect these 54-million-year-old photons from a supermassive black hole.
    Become a Video Lab member! bit.ly/video-lab
    This is an updated version of a video we published in 2016 about the Event Horizon Telescope, an international collaboration to image a black hole for the first time in human history.
    On April 10, 2019, the team announced their results: They had successfully imaged the supermassive black hole in the center of the galaxy m87, which is nearly 54 million light-years away from us. They were able to achieve unprecedented resolution using very long baseline interferometry, which combines the observations of multiple radio telescopes across the globe.
    The team wanted to find out whether Einstein's Theory of General Relativity holds up in the extreme environment of black holes, and the results do, in fact, seem to be consistent with the predictions. In the future, we may see more and shaper images of black holes as the team targets smaller wavelengths of light and recruits more telescopes. Eventually, they may include an orbiting space telescope.

hey, if you want to help us make more videos like this, I want to tell you about the Vox Video L—WAIT DON'T GO! just give me a second- At the end of this i'm going to share a great gif so standby. So the Video Lab is a membership program we set up so that viewers could support our work directly. If one of our videos has ever been worth the price of a mediocre sandwich to you, think about joining the Video Lab (wait just checked - you can't even get a $5 footlong at Subway anymore!). Being a member gives you access to behind-the-scenes videos and q&as, but most importantly, it really helps keep our channel and team sustainable and you can cancel anytime. here's where you can learn more and sign up: http://bit.ly/vox-video-membership ok i thank you dearly for listening and here is your well-earned gif: https://gfycat.com/ConstantDecimalKarakul -joss

That black hole is in a different galaxy in that to to to to to far away not even one black hole will reach us it's impossible. There's lots of planets in other galixys but it might keep growing if stars break we have to know this because if you do get sucked into a black hole you can't breath well you wouldn't want what because that's in a another galixy I'm suprised that a little telescope would capture millions in millions away in I'm kid I'm surprised that I'm this stuff but it would be better if I did then not

WTF? It's no "image" at all. Using a histogram? To estimate the diameter? This is complete BS! Nothing more than a fuzzy CGI that is now being passed onto the world to justify the cost. $19,300,000 for a best guess fuzzy computer generated image? Again, I say WTF? Will you nerds please explain to someone who clearly isn't as smart as you, why this is nothing more than science fiction, and why using "innovative algorithms" that create an image that isn't real, is an achievement?

Black Holes only exist in the minds and computers of certain branches of Science where the Scientists forgot to get themselves any qualifications in Electrical matters. On the other hand Astro Electrical Physicists & Plasma Physicists are falling about laughing at this nonsense as the Pictures in reality show nothing more sinister than a Plasmoid. The Universe is run by Electricity (not gravity), and a spiders web of electrical currents (known as Birkland Currents) flow throughout the Universe connecting virtually everything. Where many of these current flows meet, commonly at the centre of Galaxies, is found a concentration of Plasma that carries electricity known as a Plasmoid. It is donut shaped, and can glow (as seen in the supposed "Black hole" pictures), if sufficient dust and gas is present to reveal it. The Plasmoid is effectively a "Junction box" of numerous "Birkland Currents". "Birkland Currents" are credited to Prof Kristian Birkland Nobel prize winner 1903. Who discovered the electrical connection between Earth & our Sun. His work was expanded by Prof Hans Alfven (Nobel Prize winner 1970) who discovered the spiders web of "Birkland" electrical currents that flow across the whole Universe. "Black Holes" belong in Science Fiction movies, not real Science.

Why is the photo of the black hole suspicious? The black hole and the bright region surrounding it is spherical. Radiation is emitted in every direction from all over the spherical region just outside of the black hole (event horizon). For this reason there should be no black hole in the middle of the photo. This photo has been adjusted to make it suitable for headlines "first image of a black hole"

we either guessed, or we used the thing called science. I looked at a documentry and it's black hole is literally just a hole that's black. Because of the scientcy bois though we got a good guess of what a black hole would look like. but now we definitly know.

Its important because it's concrete proof that Black Holes actually exist. Before now we didnt actually have direct evidence for them, we could tell something had to be there based off of the gravitational effects they have on everything around them and we were 99% certain they were black holes, but we had never physically SEEN one to prove it until now. This image just proves what we've known for the past 100 years as without a doubt true.
