Astronomers capture first direct evidence of black hole spinning

Posted by in category: cosmology

In a first, astronomers have discovered the first direct evidence which proves the spinning of a black hole.

The observations gave astronomers new insights regarding enigmatic celestial objects, as the scientists focussed on the supermassive black hole which is present at the centre of the neighbouring Messier 87 (M87) galaxy. The Event Horizon Telescope had imaged the shadow of Messier 87 (M87) galaxy.

Just like other supermassive black holes, M87 also features powerful jets which were launched from the poles almost at the speed of light into intergalactic space.
