Supermassive black hole in our galaxy captured in first ever picture
Andrew Griffin
May 13, 2022, 3:17 p.m.

Scientists have taken the first ever image of the black hole at the
heart of our galaxy, the Milky Way.

The picture is not only our first glimpse at the supermassive black
hole - known as Sagittarius A* - but also the first direct evidence it
actually exists.

[image] Sagittarius A* is a 1000 times smaller than M87*, but they
are remarkably similar (EHT Collaboration)

Scientists have long suspected that our galaxy is the home to such a
huge, violent object: stars have been observed to be orbiting around
something compact and massive at the centre of the Milky Way. While it
appeared to be behaving like a black hole, it was invisible and
impossible to confirm.

In the new image, the black hole itself stays invisible, because it is
completely dark. But the picture shows the bright glowing ring that
runs around it, and shows the way that light bends around the region.

Researchers describe the black hole as being "the glue that holds the
galaxy together".

"It is key to our understanding of how the Milky Way formed and will
evolve in the future," said Ziri Younsi from University College
London, a researcher at Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) which captured
the image.


"Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood.
Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less."
