Space scientists unveiled the first-ever photograph of a black hole

Space scientists from across the globe had unveiled the first-ever photograph of a black hole taken from the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project. The photograph shows the black hole that is located at Messier 87 (M87) galaxy. The EHT is a network of eight radio telescopes on four continents that collectively operate like a single instrument nearly the size of the Earth. According to Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity, black holes are uninhabitable chasms of spacetime that end in a ‘singularity,’ or a mass of infinite density. It’s a place so bleak that even the laws of physics break down there, Mother Nature Network reported. The gravitational forces of them are so strong that nothing, neither matter nor light, can escape once it gets too close.
