Scientists capture black hole plasma jet in unprecedented detail

With the help of the Event Horizon Telescope, scientists have captured an image of one of a black hole’s plasma jets. The image shows a bright oval (believed to be the black hole’s accretion disc) and a darker stream of energy shooting out from it. The image has captured the phenomenon in infrared, letting astronomers understand better how hot the matter around the black hole is.
