Black holes are extremely dense formations, and because of their high gravitational pull, no electromagnetic radiation – including light – can escape such a trap.
They predicted Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity, according to which a sufficiently compact mass would distort the spatio-temporal continuum and create a black hole.
According to the NSF, the first image of a supermassive black hole was made in 2019 Event HorizonNamed for a series of terrestrial radio telescopes interconnected on a planetary scale.
The image reveals that this formation is located in the center of the galaxy Messier 87, which is located in the constellation of Virgo.
