Black holes are thought to be huge stars whose gravity is so intense that light can't escape from them. Here's what mainstream astroscientists say about the first image of a black hole: -
The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) - a planet-scale array of eight ground-based radio telescopes. It's forged through international collaboration, and was designed to capture images of a black hole.
In joint press conferences across the globe, EHT researchers revealed that they succeeded in unveiling the first direct visual evidence of the supermassive black hole in the center of Messier 87 and its shadow.
The shadow of a black hole seen in the above image is the closest we can come to an image of the black hole itself. It's a completely dark object from which light cannot escape.
The black hole’s boundary - the event horizon from which the EHT takes its name - is around 2.5 times smaller than the shadow it casts. It measures just under 40 billion km across. While this may sound large, this ring is only about 40 microarcseconds across. That's equivalent to measuring the length of a credit card on the surface of the Moon.
Although the telescopes making up the EHT aren't physically connected, they can synchronize their recorded data with atomic clocks. These are hydrogen masers, which precisely time their observations.
These observations were recorded at a wavelength of 1.3 mm during the 2017 global campaign. Each telescope of the EHT produced enormous amounts of data – roughly 350 terabytes per day. It's stored on high-performance helium-filled hard drives.
Scientists loaded the data onto highly specialized supercomputers known as correlators at the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy and MIT Haystack Observatory to be combined. They were then converted into an image using new computational tools developed by the collaboration.
The picture affirms the plasma cosmology hypothesis that black holes at galactic cores are NOT black holes at all, but rather ultra-high density energy storage phenomena called Plasmoids.
Winston H Bostick coined the term plasmoid in the 1950s. The plasma is emitted in toroidal form - a plasma-magnetic entity.
Bostick is known for recreating in the lab the structure and evolution of spiral galaxies. A plasmoid is an extremely dense, magnetically confined hot spot.
The above image is of the plasmoid at the center of the Messier 87 galaxy. It's NOT a black hole.
