We recently reported that the European Southern Observatory (ESO) has announced that the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project has just made a groundbreaking black hole discovery.
ESO revealed a few days ago that there would be a press conference about the recent discovery that is set to take place on April 10th at 15:00 CEST (9:00 ET).
More and more experts seem to believe that this is set to be the first direct photo of a black hole’s event horizon.
Stay tuned and watch the live feed below because this is definitely going to be something big since ESO revealed that a total of six conferences would be taking place around the world at the same time.
Black holes and their enigmas
Researchers have been fascinated by black holes for a really long time. Usually, if you ask someone what’s a black hole, they will respond that a black hole is the mass of darkness and this answer would not be a wrong one.
This mass absorbs material, and it will generate an accretion disk that becomes so hot that it will start to emit light.
For quite a while now, astronomers have been trying to learn more about the phenomenon.
In the center of a back hole, there’s something called a singularity. This is a tremendous amount of mass which can be shrunk down to the point that it’s extremely small.
At a certain distance from the singularity, the escape velocity will fall below the speed of light, and this phenomenon is called an event horizon.
The objects found inside the event horizon are not able to escape since they would need infinite energy for this. The objects found on the other side are believed to escape at some point.
Stay tuned and watch the discovery that might change what the world knew about black holes.
I have been blogging and posting articles for over eight years, but my passion for writing dates back in 2000. I am especially enthusiastic about technology, science, and health-related issues. When I’m not researching and writing the latest news, I’m either watching sci-fi and horror movies or checking out places worth visiting and building deep memories for later in life. I believe in empathy and continually improving myself.
