First Image of a Black Hole!

Avaldati 10 apr 2019
The Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration observed the supermassive black hole at the center of M87, finding the dark central shadow in accordance with General Relativity, further demonstrating the power of this 100 year-old theory.
To understand more about why the shadows look the way they do, check out:
I will continue updating this description with more links.

  • No It’s Just A Blurry Image Of A Spegetio😂😂😂😂

  • i hope your right

  • *Blackhole has left the chat*

  • *Aliens have joined the chat.*

  • *Scientists have left the chat.*

  • *v*

  • What if EHT telescope aims to the southern hemisphere, and takes pictures while earth orbiting the sun, can we see thousand times more detail picture of black holes in Southern galaxies?

  • This is actually so amazing. People assumed that black holes might have not existed, the picture we are seeing is technically a new discovery. It just blows my mind

  • Good video! Persevere with producing good content and you can increase really fast! Subscribe to our channel and then we'll subscribe back!

  • It is ok now to use the word Billion to refer to thousands of millions instead of millions of millions?

  • How did they find it?

  • Why did it took so long to make the picture?

  • If 20 years ago the first photo of Pluto was a blue dot and know we have better photos what will happen in the next 20 years?

  • Imagine a black hole spawning on earth... That would really... _succ_

  • Imagine if this was just a huge donut in space and not a black hole.

  • It's big because it's black.

  • Humans... We devote years of our lives to do what is simply pointless... Interesting creatures we are...

  • Someone already made this a waifu... Why am i not surprised?

  • Fake as hell. I've seen so many pics and vids of black holes in pornhub.

  • Life truly is pointless.... Huh?

    • Do not read my profile picture stop liking your own comments

  • This is... Amazing


  • when black hole explodes .. the renewal of earth

  • Nice plasmoid

  • Guys chill out The black hole takes more than 100 thousand light years to go to earth

  • Welcome to the first VR black hole game

  • It's scary😓

  • 200 scientist? But CNN and other mainstream media told me that it is one jewish woman who made it possible?

  • Wish stephan was alive

  • 2019: Humans capture the first image of a Black Hole. 2046: Black hole captures first image of a human.

  • So They Do Exist :O

  • Well i am seeing the past of that black hole now I'm a astrologer and I can crack a joke about its past shape when I'm talking with the old version😁

  • Hello m8 do you want a 7up ?

  • black holes are volcanoes of the universe...thats it period. hold my beer!!!

  • Someone send me the actual picture of the black hole!!!

  • Question: If the black hole is the size of the solar system and the plasma around finishes one revolution once every 2 days, then isn't the plasma travelling faster than the speed of light? I hope somebody has the answer to this.

  • Can't seem to find the image of our own supermassive balckhole SagA* anywhere on the internet... Why is that...??? Can someone paste the link where I can get HD quality...??? Thanks...

  • Are we going to die?

  • Who else finds the name *black hole*.. racist?

  • Trippyyy

  • This video is very well done and makes it easy to understand. Check out my article on black holes as a type, which is meant to serve as an illustration for us of something of supreme importance to each one of us.


  • I am satish india

  • We can start finding the time machine

  • If it can travel faster than the light the weekend can go for time travel right

  • Already present in the "Holy Quran"

  • That's the eye of Sauron!!!

  • They were using the Snapchat camera

  • Wait a second. If the image was formed using radio waves, which are EM waves, therefore travelling at the speed of light, and the black hole is 53.5 Million light years away. Doesn't that mean the black hole we're looking at, is a black hole that existed 53.5 million years ago? I don't know the lifespan of the black hole but doesn't that mean it doesn't exist anymore? Due to hawking radiation... Someone comment on my thinking please.

    • Kriyes Mahendra Yeah the black hole we see is technically 53.5 million years ago. No1 literally knows if it still exists

  • CGI for deadbrain people.

  • Scientists Pictured a black hole, Katy Perry 'Is Maths Science'!

  • ive saw a black hole long time ago

  • 2 years ago a report published the findings of infant stars as close as 3 light years from the alleged supermassive black hole, which was very puzzling for the scientists. They had found 11 low-mass stars forming in a region that would be impossible since the tidal forces driven by the supermassive black hole would be energetic enough to rip apart the clouds of gas and dust before they could form stars. In 2012 there was the report (and even pictures) of a gas cloud (called G2) that was headed for the alleged supermassive black hole and scientists were saying the black hole would tear it apart and consume it. In 2013 the gas cloud passed by the alleged supermassive black hole, completely unaffected by the event. Again, scientists were puzzled how the cloud could escape unaffected from such a short distance. How would these 2 happenings be possible if there was an actual supermassive black hole out there??? These kinds of very important contradiction to many areas of our "settled science" are often mentioned ONCE and then completely forgotten as if they never happened. Are they inconvenience to our "settled science"???

  • The Koran is mentioned in the black hole

  • Who's watching this in Sri Lanka

  • A black hole is a ball.Black holes constantly swallow substances, and they are also merging with another black holes,for example, in the future, our Milky Way shall merge with the Vega.Our Milky Way should have been merged with another galaxies many times.Each merger of the black holes emit gamma ray burst.Each time our Milky Way merges with another galaxies could have an influence on the Earth's creatures.As black holes constantly swallow substances and merge with another black holes, the qualities and temperatures of the black holes are constantly rising.When the explosive force inside the black hole is greater than the cohesive compression force (the critical point, it should be a constant), the black hole should explode.The black hole before the explosion was the singularity of the universe , and after the explosion, the new universe formed.We think the universe should be circulating like this.The size of each universe, that is, the size of the universe's space, is determined by the gravitational force of the black hole and should be a constant.

  • Its looks like someone auns to me 🤔🤔🤔

  • is they come on our galaxy?

  • Keren ada subtitle Indonesia nya

  • But what if it is just a planet in front of some glowing gas or something

  • And our solar system can survive a black hole wanna kniw why? With a mass like that black hole plus and the mass of the other planets and the dwarf planets in to our solar system can breach into the black hole and i predict that black whole is a dimension whole who just going to take us to a different dimension or Black hole is just a Secret Galaxy

  • Con il passare del tempo La terra cresce e aumenta di aumenta di gravità a causa delle milioni di tonnellate di materia che ogni anno precipitano dallo spazio vuoto sotto forma di polvere cosmica e /o meteoriti, la luna fa lo stesso. Come conseguenza della forza gravitazionale terrestre e/o degli attriti gravitazionali, non dovuti certamente ai meteoriti e/o alle polveri che cadono quotidianamente sulla terra concorde anche a quello che diceva anche la relatività sulla legge di gravita dominante, fino a qualche decennio fa tutto il mondo scientifico, era d'accordo che la luna sarebbe dovuta precipitare sulla terra nel giro di qualche centinaio di migliaio di anni, perché secondo loro la forza in causa (gravità) come accadrebbe anche ai nei buchi neri e/o nelle stelle di neutroni , non avrebbe concesso scampo nemmeno ai corpi meno densi e vicini tra loro come la terra luna. Tuttavia anche dopo le missioni Apollo, quando usci fuori il contrario, cioè che luna e terra stavano allontanandosi, a causa di questa immeritata rispettabilità che gli uomini hanno della scienza e di quegli scienziati che studiano l’astronomia, nessuno si prese mai la briga di mettere nemmeno in dubbio queste discipline scientifiche e/o quegli scienziati, nessuno in quel mondo scientifico-matematico che abbia nemmeno provato a dire "ma guardate che stiamo sbagliando". La nuda verità è che siamo dentro un essere vivente e se anche fossero veri buchi neri e/o stelle di neutroni essi non si ingrandirebbero all'infinito ma al contrario come accade in un corpo vivente dove le cellule si accrescono è poi si dividono per moltiplicarsi anche in quel caso buchi neri e/o stelle ai neutroni di cui dubito molto sulla loro esistenza , si dividerebbero per accrescere l'organismo che li contiene. Non bisognava andarsi a cercare le prove chissà dove, tutto questo è evidente già sulla terra che attualmente sta attraversando un periodo di trasformazione o di mitosi totale la stessa mitosi planetaria che diete origine alla terra e a Venere da un gigante gassoso e /o alla luna più ultimamente dalla terra, per questo la nostra luna si sta allontanando e non andrà mai a precipitare sulla terra. Questo qui sotto è uno spermio caduto al tempo di Tunguska insieme ad un 'altra dozzina di spermi cosmici tutti grosso modo equidistanti dal centro di Tunguska: infine nella #SECONDA #PARTE di questo articolo potrete trovare questa verità antica quanto il mondo.

  • The Holy Quran mentions the Black Holes in the following holy verse by its very specific characteristics ; These are : (1) They are running stars. (2) They are veiled or receded . (3) They are sweeping stars . God says in the Holy Quran.., “(So verily, I swear by the stars that are veiled “. “And by the (sweeping ) stars that move swiftly and hide themselves.” (HolyQuran 81:15-16) In another verse Quran say that, “When the stars are extinguished" (Holy Quran 77: 8) (The death of stars because of the exhaustion of its fuel. All matter in its way-not even light can escape). The Holy Quran is more accurate when describing the Black Hole ; in just three words the Holy Quran describes the black holes as follows: (1) They are running star. (and that is what science says) (2) They are receding away or veiled after being apparent (and science says they were stars that receded or veiled as light can't escape their gravitation) (3) They suck or sweep any matter (and that is what science says about these stars, It works like vacuum cleaner ).

  • Guys an orange fruit loop. Hole flavour

  • Shouldn't the bright region be on one side of the image? As you mentioned in the last video? Or has the image been rotated?

    • The bright region should be on the right side, since the black hole was found to revolve clockwise.

  • That's not a black hole but okay

  • Does this mean that we are going to die

    • TheMadHawker 2008, everybody dies, but this black hole won’t make it happen any sooner.

  • My junk ride deep into outer space been through the black hole --- May/16/1987 where I travelled into outer space where you come to darkness then darker and darker no light at all then i will come into light and brighter light and into a hole new world a beautiful world the colour was crimson and orange so beautiful out of this world I was taken by a UFO as I was away for 13 day I was treated well by little alien people the do not talk the chirp like birds to each other.... There are millions of black holes --- black holes beyond the black holes millions of times...

  • Looks like when I take a picture of the moon with my phone lol

  • People are racist calling a hole a black hole while it is orange hole .

  • Can anyone tell whether the plasma flows from left to right or top to bottom or back to front or its vice versa...???

  • Excellent work i must say. Its another great step. Regarding the fuzzy picture and meme makers We do have stupid humens herr who are still dumbass Monkeys

  • Black hole is just shaggys old butthole

  • So much noise in black hole

  • it confirms that blackholes do exist? but we knew they existed...we could see their effects... so it's just a photo of the event horyzon, just a photo not a confirmation theyr exist.

  • Oooooohh............ *That's where my bagel went!*

  • The Sauron's eye!!!! Againnnn!!!!
