    Real picture.
    But it doesn’t matter.
    All black holes are basically the same and this looks like the one from the Messier galaxy.
    So who gives a shit?

    how do you get polarity information with that high resolution when the main picture's so blurry?

      the same way they fabricated the main picture

      There's a "data visualization" layered on top of the main image. It's "stylistic" detail from what I can tell.

    A picture is created by light hitting a sensor, so no that's fake. You cannot have a "picture" of a black hole. Wow an accretion disk, so amazing. I've never seen a disk around Saturn or a binary star system absorbing matter.

    black holes are literally the “laboratories” of theoretical physicists today

      Because modern theoretical physics is unadulterated horseshit. Imagine devoting your entire life to to something you will never be able to test or prove.

      It should be viewed as a curiosity & for one off papers. I honestly find the other boundary of absolute zero to be more interesting. And we can actually test our hypothesises there by running actual experiments.

      But even that has been corrupted by the moronation of black holes with a new experiment using a BEC to test "Quantum properties of blackholes". Because as we all know, areas that contain highly energetic matter, moving with relativistic speeds would not be noisy environments or decohered in the slightest.

      What do you mean? Astrophysics in general is a shitty science since it's not experimental and doesn't follow the scientific method, that's the opposite of a laboratory.

        NTA but it's pretty obvious, don't you think? how else are they supposed to test hypotheses in extreme gravity fields?

    how large is the blackhole at the center of our galaxy?

      tiny, I mean look up can you even see it?

        well theoretically you can kinda see where its event horizon is based on if shit is missing or not, from its background. if not actively feeding and having an accretion disk

    What is actually inside the black hole beyond the event horizon? Is it just the remaining matter from the collapsed star packed into an extremely dense ball?

      Quite honestly I'm not sure why there's so much speculation and discussion about what is "inside" a black hole when in reality it is likely just said, unreasonably dense ball of degenerate matter that decays like anything else. Much in the same way Neutron Stars function, since they also create the same kind of gravitational lensing and tidal effects.

    why doesn't it look like this?

      think that is magnetic field, which is further away than light around event horizon is. so doesn't lense?

      It's an image of the accretion disk, the pole of the black hole is pointed almost towards us, a polarization filter is used to filter the "light", the black dot you see is essentially a little filter that blocks out the middle because it's too bright, you can't actually see the center, if you could image one without an accretion disk it would be most optimal, but that presents many difficulties

        thx for reply.
        >little filter
        so all the visualitions of black holes with black centers are basically bs, since irl there would be too much radiated light just before the edge of event horizon? there are nasa animations with the filter included, which now seems little cringe

    I suspect that may be a fabricated image using computer software

    > No caption explaining which color represents which temperature
    If I were a betting man, I'd put money on the ratio between the maximum temperature and the minimum temperature being ~3.

    > The center is not black.
    The picture is real, but this is not a black hole.
    Because there is no such thing as black holes.
