New Astrophysics Experiment trying to Catch Direct Evidence for a Black Hole

Thanks to Lucy S. for the link.

A new group of scientists and astrophysicists from 13 institutions are putting together the Event Horizon Telescope, which is the combination of a number of other, individual telescopes and detectors, to catch any glimpses of gas clouds being 'sucked' into the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy. It is thought that this particular massive critter is some 4 million times more massive that the sun. If this can be accomplished, a ring of light should appear around a perfectly black center, as that gas moves inward towards its final demise of passing through the event horizon. Check out the article! Very cool idea!

  1. The new astrophysics experiment trying to catch direct evidence is wonderful. And the content is very great and Academic writing help for writing documents
