Scientists Are Turning Earth Into a Telescope to See a Black Hole

Black holes may be one of the universe’s most bizarre phenomena. They are literally infinite in the sky the placed where the mathematics of Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity falls apart. These dense behemoths have such a strong gravitational field that time stops and the future point directly at the center the light crossing the boundary or an event horizon which can’t escape. But no one’s ever taken a picture of black hole and scientists are willing to change that.

The Event Horizon Telescope, or ETH is a network of around ten radio-telescope observations across the planet synchronized via most precise aromic clocks and it is pointed directly at the center of our galaxy. There, scientists are pretty sure a supermassive black hole around four million times the mass of mass of our sun, called Sagittarius A* which powers the orbit of the Milky Way’s rotation, tears matter to shreds and filing balls of it across space.

The Telescope network will also look black hole inside the giant galaxy M87. The EHT is around a decade old and the addition of the most powerful telescope, ALMA or Atacama Large millimeter Array in Chilean desert along with telescope at the South Pole may allow the scientists to finally get wild black hole image previously offer only by computer simulations/graphics or artist drawings.

This souped-up Event Horizon Telescope will start observing in early April.

“This is going to be a seminal observation in the history of mankind,” Grant Tremblay, an observational astrophysicist from Yale University, told Gizmodo. “This image [of Sagittarius A*], whatever it shows, will be in the top ten images ever taken.”
