Losing my mind on TV about Black Hole image


Losing my mind on TV about Black Hole image

Alan Duffy

This is the heart of darkness.

The gravity of the blackhole is so great it casts a ‘shadow’ 2.5 times larger than itself (as defined by its event horizon) against the glowing material swirling into its maw.

That darkness is the size of the solar system but even so 6.5 billion Sun’s worth of mass crushes up pretty small when you’re a black hole.

Enjoy me losing all my communication skills in pure joy and excitement on national TV as I explain the impossible image of the black hole to News Breakfast.

Wait for the involuntary SQUEEEEE at the 3 minute mark.

Image taken by the Event Horizon Telescope, a world-spanning collection of telescopes linked together, able to see something the size of this 👉 . 👈 on your phone if you’re in Sydney and the telescope was the other side of Australia in Perth. That’s FINE DETAIL.
