The black hole image

It was amazing to see the very first image of a black hole. I'm not expert in the field of astrophysics, but in the interest of AI, I think the image is worth to be discussed more. I have made a blog to explain my point of view:

yes i agreed..
The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), which uses a network of telescopes around the globe to turn all of Earth into an enormous radio telescope, has taken the first direct image of a black hole. There is general consensus that supermassive black holes exist in the centers of most galaxies. Despite its invisible interior, the presence of a black hole can be inferred through its interaction with other matter and with electromagnetic radiation such as visible light. Hawking showed that quantum effects allow black holes to emit exact black-body radiation. ... This radiation does not come directly from the black hole itself, but rather is a result of virtual particles being "boosted" by the black hole's gravitation into becoming real particles.

We have obtained long-slit observations of the circumnuclear region of M87 at three different locations, with a spatial sampling of 0.028" using the Faint Object Camera f/48 spectrograph on board HST. These data allow us to determine the rotation curve of the inner ~1" of the ionized gas disk in [OII]3727 to a distance as close as 0.07" (~5pc) to t...

We reconsider in this work the effects of an energy absorption term in the evolution of primordial black holes (hereafter PBHs) in the several epochs of the Universe. A critical mass is introduced as a boundary between the accreting and evaporating regimes of the PBHs. We show that the growth of PBHs is negligible in the Radiation-dominated Era due...
