This black hole is four million times the mass of our Sun and is located at a distance of 26000 light years from our Solar System. “We were shocked that the size of the black hole’s ring coincided well with predictions from Einstein’s theory of general relativity,” said astronomer Geoffrey Bower, an EHT collaborator and astronomer at Academia Sinica in Taipei, in a statement. “These unprecedented observations have greatly enhanced our understanding of what lies at the center of our galaxy,” he said. It also explains how supermassive black holes interact with their surroundings.’
Einstein’s theory to be tested for 100 years
About a century ago, Albert Einstein predicted the existence of black holes. Black holes are regions in space where gravity is extremely powerful. So powerful that not even light from a microscopic particle can pass through them. For the last 100 years, scientists have been continuously testing Einstein’s theory. They are trying to find out the circumstances and circumstances in which this theory turns out to be true. So far they have not been successful in this.
What does Einstein’s theory say?
Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity is also called Einstein’s theory of gravity. This theory was published in 1916. Einstein’s theory states that the real reason for the gravity of any object in space is its mass and size, which creates motion in the space-time around it. Black holes allow scientists to observe extreme gravity, allowing scientists to test whether Einstein’s theory holds.
How is the ‘terrible’ sound of a black hole heard in space? NASA opened the secret
Einstein had already told the size 100 years ago
Einstein’s theory of how objects and regions around a black hole behave has passed numerous astronomical tests, and the Sagittarius A black found on Thursday is no exception. Einstein also predicted the figure drawn by scientists 100 years ago. In a press release, Professor of Physics at Syracuse University Duncan Brown said that photographing the black hole at the center of our galaxy is an incredible success.
Black hole is 1000 times smaller than the first black hole
Brown said this picture shows hot gas swirling around the black hole at the center of our galaxy. The gas is moving at almost the speed of light. The photo that surfaced on Thursday is not the first picture of a black hole. In 2019, the EHT organization released the first photo of a black hole, which was named M87. This black hole was located in the center of the galaxy named Messier 87. The pictures of both the black holes look the same while the black hole of the galaxy is 1000 times smaller.
