Astronomers Have Released A New Image Of A Black Hole

The same team of international scientists that in 2019 brought you the first image of a black hole has released a more detailed image of a black hole.

The Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Ont., Says the new image shows the “crisp swirl” of light around the black hole as it appears in polarized light.

According to the institute’s Avery Broderick, polarized light allows researchers to learn more about the magnetic fields surrounding the black hole in the galaxy M87.

They believe the new image will further help them understand how magnetic fields allow the black hole to “eat” matter and eject powerful jets of energy.
