A black hole to remember

I think I am among millions of bloggers who shared one of the most important photos in the history of mankind.
Black Hole image
The Blackhole 
This is the first ever black hole image released online by astronomers in a far .. faraway galaxy. (Sorry I could not keep myself).

That galaxy is called M87. It is 500 million trillion km and so those people who have hopes that the world ends soon by getting sucked by a black hole will have to wait for a little longer.

According to scientists, it is a monster black hole with a measure of 40 billion km (three million times the size of the earth) according to the calculations of the scientists.
According to scientists, the blackhole confirms Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity. “Sorry to all the Egyptian students from Mounfia who prove it was theoretically every year, Egyptians will know what I mean”

The photo of a black hole was captured by the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), which is a network of eight linked telescopes around the globe.

It is produced by a new algorithm made by 31-years-old Katie Bouman.

I do not know if EHT was named after that horror sci-fi film “Event Horizon” or not but it is interesting name indeed especially when you know that there is a black hole in it.
