Three years after astronomers discovered the first image of the cavity, scientists hinted at this remarkable image.
European Southern Observatory (ESO) և The Horizon Event Telescope (EHT), an organization with more than 200 astronomers from around the world, including Canada, released the news earlier this week. inviting the media to participate in events that “will announce the groundbreaking results of the Event Horizon Telescope collaboration.”
In April 2019, EHT released When was the first hollow image made?A photo of the supermassive cavity in the heart of the galaxy known as Messier 87 (M87).
But the second major target of EHT is: the massive cavity in our center a galaxy called Sagittarius A * (pronounced Sagittarius A-star); that photo that astronomers around the world have been waiting for.
A big announcement about our own Milky Way galaxy is scheduled for Thursday from the Event Horizon telescope. Have they seen Sag A *, the hollow we orbit, which is 4 million times the mass of the Sun, 30 times the radius of 000 26,000 light-years? Follow! @ehtelescope:
EHT consists of: A set of eight telescopes around the world that, when used together, act as one giant Earth-sized telescope. Together, they allow astronomers to make more detailed observations that are incomparable to any other telescope.
Most of these cavities form when a giant star dies and collapses, although astronomers are still trying to figure out how supermassive cavities form. These are extremely dense areas of space with a gravitational field where everything that crosses their threshold, known as the event horizon, is drawn in and never returns. This includes light, which makes it very difficult to detect holes if they do not interact with a nearby star.
Located about 50 million light-years from Earth, M87 օգտագործել astronomers were able to use eight telescopes around the world to capture the image of the supermassive space at its center, which is estimated to be six billion times larger than ours. : .
By comparison, Sagittarius A * has a mass approximately 4.3 million times that of our Sun մոտ about 25,000 light-years from Earth.
But Sagittarius A * is much harder to picture, even though it is much closer to us. Instead of looking at the galaxy standing in front of us, like M87, telescopes should look through the thick clouds of dust and plasma that lie beneath our “supermassive hollow.”
The announcement will be made on Thursday at 9:07 ET.
