Scientists used a global network of telescopes to see and capture the first-ever picture of a black hole. They captured an image of the super-massive black hole and its shadow at the center of a galaxy known as M87.
This is the first direct visual evidence that black holes exist, the researchers said. In the image, a central dark region is encapsulated by a ring of light that looks brighter on one side.
Black Holes were predicted by Albert Einstein in 1916 with his general theory of relativity. Before that, the prophet Enoch may have known about them via revelation from God. Listen to the words in the Book of Enoch. He describes a prison for the stars and for the spirits of sinners. A place with no earth beneath and no heavens above. A dark place that swallows stars but emits a bright light. While his description perfectly fits that of a Black Hole, we cannot know for sure that he was referencing them. What do you think?
