    First Ever Photo Of A Black Hole

    https://www.latimes.com/science/scie...010-story.html

    Amazing!!!!

    The first ever photo of a black hole! An international team of 200 scientists, extremely high tech equipment, and clear skies where the 8 telescopes are located across the globe.....to get the job done.

    I can not even imagine the size and power of this force of nature! This one has a mass that is 6.5 billion times greater than the sun! And it is roughly 38 billion kilometers across! And the gravitational pull is so strong that not even light can escape. It consumes and consumes and the result is super heated matter that can reach hundreds of millions of degrees.

    Lets be thankful this monstrous abyss is so far away, because it would suck up our planet like a late night snack!

    My question.....where does all this consumed matter go??

    I've always been in awe of what lies under the surface of the oceans, which are finite....whereas the much bigger sensation for me is the endless sky. Apparently there is no end....but another day, because I have trouble understanding what that even means....

    It just dawned on me.....I think I know where those missing socks went, and why I can't explain where some of our money has gone.

    We don't know the answer to this question. We cannot observe matter inside a black hole since nothing, including light can escape the event horizon of a black hole.

    However, Steven Hawking had two interesting theories:

    - Physical information is permanently encoded in a 2D hologram at the surface of the black hole's event horizon;
    - Matter could end up in another universe if it enters the event horizon of a black hole: “The hole would need to be large and if it was rotating it might have a passage to another universe.”

    Caught in the act: a black hole rips apart an unfortunate star.

    (NBC NEWS) — Scientists have captured a view of a colossal black hole violently ripping apart a doomed star, illustrating a extraordinary and chaotic cosmic event from beginning to end for the first time using NASA’s planet-hunting telescope.

    Researchers said NASA’s orbiting transiting exoplanet survey satellite, better known as TESS, revealed the detailed timeline of a star 375 million light-years away warping and spiraling into the unrelenting gravitational pull of a supermassive black hole.

    They added that the star, roughly the same size as our sun, was eventually sucked into oblivion in a rare cosmic occurrence that astronomers call a tidal disruption event.

    Astronomers used an international network of telescopes to detect the phenomenon before turning to TESS, whose permanent viewing zones designed to hunt distant planets caught the beginning of the violent event, proving effective its unique method of surveilling the cosmos.

    Such phenomena happen when a star ventures too close to a supermassive black hole, objects that reside at the center of most large galaxies including our milky way.

    Observing the oscillation of light as the black hole gobbles the star and spews stellar material in an outward spiral could help astronomers understand the black hole’s behavior, a scientific mystery since physicist Albert Einstein’s work more than a century ago examined gravity’s influence on light in motion.

    I'll try to post the link later when I have better service.

    And yes it is a scheme problem.

    Thx for this Saddle....
