Scientists reveal first image ever made of a black hole

Astronomers have revealed the first ever close-up images of a black hole Wednesday. Scientists in six cities on three continents simultaneously unveiled the first ever picture of the mysterious phenomenon. The project revealed an image of a black hole sited at the center of the Messier 87 galaxy, which is 53.49 million light-years away from Earth.

I'm expecting an unintelligible extremely low res picture with a red circle surrounding a dot and a label that says "Black hole".

The marketing is all wrong here. It’s not a “Black Hole”, it’s a Rehabilitation Centre for Russia-Trump collusion morons!

the questions that still plague mankind. What is a black hole? Who is it formed? What can we learn from it? And can I put my dick in it?

Captain obvious here. Of course it is not a literal picture of a black hole, but rather of its shadow. The ring you see around it is matter turning to plasma as it accelerates around the event horizon. Is it a big deal? Kind of. The picture confirms our models on how black holes should look like and behave. It does not give much of new insight though.

CNN blames trump for this black hole. I hope this picture clears him, they think the black hole needs a special council

The fuck kind of headline does RT and Slate have? This is an incredible achievement, previously thought impossible. Small minded people always want to make fun of the extraordinary and beautiful.

"After arguing his case for 20 years, Prof Falcke persuaded the European Research Council to fund the project." - the BBC. Where's his photograph? Why is the only picture of some random woman?

wow, slate. "the picture isn't very good." nooooo it only took an emulated telescope of the size of the EARTH to take this picture because the object is o far away and weak in light. This picture is a triumph of what humanity can achieve if scientists lead the way.
