Scientists have for the first time been able to photograph the massive black hole at the center of the Milky Way, using the international collaboration of the Event Horoscope Telescope, and this video shows another exciting view of this groundbreaking human exploration.
The video, which sequentially zooms in on the "Sgr A" black hole at the center of the Milky Way, begins with a wide view of the Milky Way galaxy as seen on Earth, but then into dense clouds of gas. And dust dive into the center of our galactic space.
Stars in this region have been observed for decades with the Southern European Observatory (ESO) Very Large Telescope (ESO) and its interferometer, and the massive gravitational pull of the black hole has been determined. , Deflects nearby stars. Thus, the existence of the black hole was identified long ago.
Finally, we come to the * Sgr A black hole in the heart of the Milky Way, the first image of which was recorded by the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT). In fact, due to the intense gravity and absorption of everything, even light, the black hole itself is seen. The black hole is thus identified by a dark central region called the shadow sign, which is surrounded by a ring of glowing gas and dust.
Different observations used here at different times, by different teams and with facilities They are taken differently and put together to create a zoom effect. Images from visible wavelengths first reach infrared (infrared) wavelengths and the final image is taken at radio wavelengths.
