Summary (IA Generated)

Astronomers released the most detailed image of a black hole yet, one that revealed its “most mysterious” feature: the bright jets of energy that shoot out for thousands of light-years.

The new image from the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) collaboration used polarized light ― filtering it, much like polarized sunglasses ― to show the area around the black hole.

“Most matter lying close to the edge of a black hole falls in,” the collaboration said in a news release.

That leads to jets of energy and matter that extend some 5,000 light-years from the center, as shown in the new image, the first-ever detailed look at the region just outside the black hole: .

“The newly published polarized images are key to understanding how the magnetic field allows the black hole to ‘eat’ matter and launch powerful jets,” EHT collaboration member Andrew Chael, a NASA Hubble Fellow at the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science, said in a news release.

“Even now we are designing a next-generation EHT that will allow us to make the first black hole movies,” Sheperd Doeleman, founding director of the EHT collaboration, said in a news release.
