A new video clip revealed by NASA begins with the famous image of the black hole in the galaxy M87 and displays data collected by different telescopes that monitor this angle of the universe. The film shows information gathered by radio telescopes and telescopes that monitor the universe in visible light, ultraviolet rays, or X-rays.
Each of these telescopes provides scientists with different information about the behavior of the black hole in the center of the galaxy M87, which Its mass is six billion suns It is located 55 million light-years from Earth. In total, up to 19 different telescopes participated in the observation, and the entire initiative was overseen by 760 scientists from nearly 200 scientific institutions. This is an unprecedented collaboration, the effects of which could greatly expand our knowledge of the universe.
The information that scientists have gathered about the black hole in the M87 galaxy is to allow researchers to initiate new experiments and research related to, among other things, with designing better tests of Einstein’s theory of general relativity related to the behavior of matter around black holes.
