>Astronomers on Wednesday unveiled the first photo of a black hole, one of the star-devouring monsters scattered across the Universe and obscured by impenetrable shields of gravity.
>The image of a dark core with a flame-orange halo of gas and plasma shows a supermassive black hole 50 million lightyears away in a galaxy known as M87, they announced during simultaneous press conferences in Brussels, Shanghai, Tokyo, Washington, Santiago and Taipei.
>Data needed to construct the picture was gathered in April 2017 by the Event Horizon Telescope, a joined-up network of eight radio telescopes spread across the globe.

I don't believe it. The way they did it, and considering who supposedly discovered it, I think it's bullshit. In fact, they may have made up the whole picture, though I reckon it is an actual picture, just not of a "black hole", which don't exist, or if they do exist, our description of them being "holes" in space-time are wrong, obviously, I hope I don't have to explain why that's retarded.

It's not a real photo, it's as close as we can get to a "real" photo but it is actually a bunch of strings of information that where feed to an algorithm that calculated the black hole should look like that.
Aka a glorified artistic representation of a black hole.
You can't take a picture of a black hole because the thing absorbs the light, making it simply impossible to see, it is literally invisible to the human eye.

>"holes" in space-time
That's just speculation, the black hole is just a mass of compressed matter with quite a heavy weight, the weight of the black hole makes it's gravitational pull strong enough to absorb light (which is a radio signal) and any other piece of matter that's around it.
