A black hole is a region of spacetime exhibiting such strong gravitational effects that nothing not even particles and electromagnetic radiation such as light can escape from inside it, according to the explanation given by Wikipedia.
For the first time ever, Astronomers have taken the image of a black hole, which is located in a distant galaxy and the picture of the same has been released to blow up the internet. The picture had been unveiled by a collection of 200 scientists following a decade of tedious work. The image was captured by using radio telescope the Event Horizon Telescope. It is named for the point at which nothing can escape the gravitational pull of thr black hole.
Actually, it's eight radio telescopes around the globe and not one telescope. Scientist made a super telescope by combining the power of eight telescope. This black hole is larger than the orbit Neptune makes around our star. It has a mass 6.5-billion times that of the Sun. It measures 40 billion kilometre across and about three million times the size of Earth. So, astronomers needed supercomputers to analyze 5,000 trillion bytes of data which was collected by telescope.
MIT graduate Katie Bouman developed an algorithm that collected together a final, single photograph and it confirmed Einstein’s theory of General Relativity which was the first to posit the existence of black holes. In a statement, “We have seen what we thought was unseeable, we have seen and taken a picture of a black hole," released by Sheperd Doeleman, the director of the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration.
And you know in spite of being very important, the picture of black hole too became the fodder to memes on internet. The users of twitter have been posting hilarious memes for the picture of black hole.
Take a look at the funniest memes about the black hole trending on the internet;
One such meme is: The photo of the black hole is blurry, but if you zoom and enhance then you can see its full destructive power.
