Our Great Central Sun Takes A Selfie...


The Fate of Many Dark Ones Is A 

One-Way Black Hole Journey

Sarva Mangalam!

This is an image of polarized light in the vicinity of the supermassive black hole at the center of galaxy M87. The Event Horizon Telescope collaboration – a global network of radio dishes – observed it. The lines indicate the orientation of polarized light, which is directly related to the black hole’s magnetic field lines. Thus, for the first time, we have an image showing the “signature” of magnetic fields around a black hole. Image via EHT/ ESO.
