Legolas! What do your elf-eyes see? M87 black hole

An international scientific team announced in simultaneous news conferences in Washington, Brussels, Santiago, Shanghai, Taipei and Tokyo – the first-ever photo of a black hole. The image was obtained using data collected in April 2017 from eight radio telescopes in six locations. The M87 black hole observed by the scientific team resides about 54 million light-years from Earth and boasts an almost-unimaginable mass of 6.5 billion times that of the sun. A light year is the distance light travels in a year, 5.9 trillion miles (9.5 trillion km).
