ITS NOT BLURRY. SOCIAL MEDIA AND NEWS
PAPERS ZOOMED THAT SHIT IN THEMSELVES.
“Most news outlets are only showing the blurry
zoomed in picture of the black hole so I’m
posting the entire zoomed-out image of the black
hole and everything it is consuming. The tiny
black spec in this image is 6.5 billion times the
size of our sun. This thing is HUGE." Dan Farr

    • No, that's not the actual photo that was "zoomed in." Chandra is an X-ray telescope, meaning it can't detect radio. The photo of the black hole was using Radio waves to take the photo. That blurry photo is the real deal from what I know

    • No the blurry photo is the ACTUAL entire image, composed of radio wave visualization from 8 telescopes across the earth. They gathered all radio waves inbound from that general direction for two months and then processed it. That's why they had so many hard drives, its a ton of data.

    • They're two different pictures though. The "zoomed in" is the picture of the actual black hole (or at least it's accretion disk), while the "zoomed out" picture is a picture taken by the Chandra X-ray telescope of the M87 Galaxy that the black hole is in. You can't actually see the black hole in it.

    • Hey, retard, the blurry image is the official image. The image was taken using interferometry, which means many telescopes, NOT the Chandra X Ray. Misinformation on misinformation stop making science posts when the most science you know is how many knuckles you can shove up your ass.

    • It's not possible to take a picture of a black hole, by definition, it consumes all energy (including light infrared rest of the electro magnetic spectrum etc.) and thereby makes it invisible to any form of observation.

    • So the entire picture isn't the black hole. It's everything around it. That's how black holes work. You can only take a picture of its surroundings. So taking a big picture where the actual hole is so small is why, I think, people are upset. People want to see the hole itself with better quality.
