She's the scientist who helped create black hole pictures

Earlier this week the world received the first ever photographs of an actual black hole, and now Soundgarden fans are petitioning to name the phenomenon after the band's late frontman Chris Cornell. It is known that the supermassive black hole is located at a distance of 55 million light-years away from Earth and has an estimated mass which is up to 6.5 billion times bigger in comparison to the mass of our sun. The moniker comes from an 18th-century chant describing the creation of the Hawaiian universe.
But, the fuzzy image that looks like a ring of fire, "is the most direct visualization - it's a really dramatic step forward in our ability to say here is a black hole and it cast a shadow".
Using the Event Horizon Telescope, scientists obtained an image of the black hole at the center of galaxy M87, outlined by emission from hot gas swirling around it under the influence of strong gravity near its event horizon. All previous pictures of black holes were either simulations or animations.
Meyers, who is not associated with EHT, said the most important takeaway from the image is that it allows scientists to test their understanding of how gravity works.
The fact that black holes do not allow light to escape makes viewing them hard.
Florida man killed by enormous pet bird
Potentially already injured from his fall, Hajos would have been in the most vulnerable position for an attack by his pet. Emergency responders arrived and whisked him off to a nearby hospital but he ultimately succumbed to his injuries.
Amy Hennig’s Star Wars game "looked and felt like Uncharted"
Kennedy and Star Wars have been roundly criticized for what appears to be a lack of planning for the current Star Wars trilogy. It was handsome , it was raw and it had a weight to it that no other film in the series has been able to capture so far.
Einstein's baby, general relativity (E=MC squared was his mistress), predicts that any object collapsing beyond a certain point would form a black hole, inside which a singularity would appear.
This new research might change that.
Numerous traits possessed by supermassive black holes continue to puzzle researchers, including the unusual cases when some of them can release jets loaded with material even if they are inescapable objects and the feat should be impossible.
The research was conducted by the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project, an worldwide collaboration begun in 2012 to try to directly observe the immediate environment of a black hole using a global network of Earth-based telescopes. An worldwide team of researchers harnessed the power of eight different radio observatories which are spread around the world, as they aimed to more about supermassive black holes, including the one which is present in the center of the Milky Way. Yet, nobody knows how they formed or got so heavy. "We're seeing the unseeable".
Further evidence that this announcement might pertain to the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL comes from 9to5Google's Stephen Hall. Furthermore, it's also said that the unannounced Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are also going to be heading to the Un-Carrier.
DeBrusk and Krug will play tonight, but Clifton will be in the press box with Steven Kampfer taking his spot on the third pair. Athletes like Kadri are trained to play on the edge, and the game encourages a culture of retribution and violence.
He also conceded that vague promises from Sanders and the campaign about their plans had contributed to the speculation. Trump has repeatedly said he will not because he's under audit, though Democrats have not retreated from the issue.
The 19-year-old Svechnikov who was taken No. 2 overall in last year's draft has two goals and an assist in the series. The Carolina forward fell to the ice and hit his head, prompting teammates to help him to the locker room.
Russell, Dinwiddie and LeVert combining for 67 points represents nearly an idealized version of how the Nets want to play. Both players were caught looking at Johnson's phone in the middle of the game, which goes against team and league rules.
Asquith also added that the Queen had spoken of the incident as a distressing example of Britain's past history with India. The Jallianwala Bagh massacre is one of the darkest chapters in the history of India's freedom struggle.
As the spire fell, the sky lit orange, acrid smoke rose in plumes and flames shot out the roof behind the nave. An investigation has been launched into the cause of the fire which may be linked to renovation work.
They used a rope to pull the shivering dog to safety, Payalaw said, adding that the rescue mission took about 15 minutes. We looked for a way to help her and in the end, chose to use the rope to tie around her body to lift her up.
I think it has effects on everybody: "Increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism", she added. The Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) on Monday strongly criticized Ocasio-Cortez for her comments.
The episode topped the 16.1 million who saw the seventh-season premiere and the 16.9 million who watched that season's finale. If the show's final season can manage to top that, then " Game of Thrones " really will be going out on a high.
Former head of Volkswagen could face 10 years in prison
