In 1919 the now famous Eddington expedition ventured out to see whether gravity can bend light — a major test of Einstein’s general theory of relativity. By viewing a total solar eclipse, they showed that the Sun did change the path of starlight just as predicted — making Einstein and his theory world-famous. Now, a whole century later, scientists have set out again, to even more remote locations scattered across four continents. They will once more push the limits of astronomical knowledge, testing the same theory in a way Einstein could never have imagined. Their goal: to take a picture of a black hole, something so ambitious that it seemed impossible… until now! The story of black holes begins as a puzzle. In 1915 Karl Schwarzschild noticed that Einstein’s then-new general theory of relativity predicted the existence of strange objects known as “singularities”. They were places where his new equations describing gravity seemed to go haywire. Inside them was a bizarre place where time stopped and space became infinite… At the time, many scientists, including Einstein, considered them too strange to be worth seriously researching. Over the hundred years since then, however, evidence has piled up indicating that singularities do exist in our Universe… …as black holes. A black hole is the most mysterious object in the Universe. It’s where matter gets to be in such a small space and is so dense that the force of gravity prevents even light from escaping. Now that’s a one-way door from our Universe. We know they sit at the hearts of galaxies and they drive how those galaxies grow and how those galaxies die, they swallow gas and stars up. They’re also these incredibly enigmatic and mysterious objects that live at the boundary between our two great theories of physics: general relativity, which describes gravity, and quantum mechanics, which describes the smallest things in the world. If you want to make a test of the fundamental theories of the Universe you want to go to the most extreme laboratories in the Universe, and a black hole is that. But observing this most extreme laboratory requires an extreme instrument. The immense gravity of black holes is an obstacle to viewing them directly. No light can escape from them and they are tiny — crushing huge amounts of matter into small points of darkness. Even as the existence of these strangest of objects became more widely accepted, seeing them directly remained an impossible dream. In fact, to achieve the necessary resolution to see black holes directly, a single telescope would need to be the size of planet Earth — clearly too large to be feasible. Instead, astronomers spent decades studying the effects that black holes have on the matter around them. But the dream of getting more concrete evidence of these exotic objects was too tempting to be simply forgotten. We all understand from a mathematical point of view that black holes exist, but to actually see something is a very visceral experience and I think important for science and also for us to believe in it. In the late 1960s, a new technique changed astronomy. Called very long baseline interferometry, it enabled several telescopes to observe as a team — creating a larger, “virtual” telescope that could overcome constraints on telescope size. As this method spread, it became clear that direct imaging of a black hole was a real possibility. In 2009, the Event Horizon Telescope project, the EHT, was born — to pursue this exciting goal. The Event Horizon Telescope collaboration is a collaboration of scientists around the world from many different countries, continents and institutions to make a telescope the size of the Earth, giving us the highest resolution there is that currently is achievable with telescopes of any kind. It was clear from the outset that the EHT would face unique hurdles. But “seeing is believing”, and the team was dedicated to revealing a black hole for the first time. To create it, eight telescopes across the world were linked together. ESO plays a key role in two of these telescopes, both located on the Chajnantor Plateau in Chile: the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array — ALMA — and the Atacama Pathfinder Experiment, known as APEX. The other telescopes that make up the EHT are the IRAM 30-metre telescope in Spain, the Large Millimeter Telescope in Mexico, the Submillimeter Telescope in Arizona, the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope and the Submillimeter Array, both in Hawai’i, and finally the South Pole Telescope in Antarctica. Together, they can achieve a resolution equivalent to reading a newspaper in Paris while sitting in New York. The immense challenges of the project soon became clear. The telescopes, all highly-advanced instruments in their own right, were not built to work together. Making them work together as one interconnected interferometer required a huge team. These are engineers, observers, theoreticians, and they all work together, not only to image the event horizon of a black hole, but also to understand what we are seeing. The project brought together more than 200 scientists from over 100 institutions, all of whom had to play things by ear as they built this brand-new organisation. Coordinating such a large team spread across the globe was just one of many significant challenges. With a project that sets new benchmarks for human ingenuity, there is plenty of scope for things to go wrong. And, one after another, they did… Equipment failures… Power failures…
Not enough hard drives to store data … Believe it or not, at one point, some of the scientists were even held at gunpoint during their observations… Soon the project was in dire straits… The locations of the telescope also presented huge practical challenges. The environments that are best for viewing the night sky are often the most difficult places to build observatories. The telescopes of the EHT are no exception. Their remote sites are scattered across four continents, including observatories in the barren Chilean Atacama Desert, on a freezing plateau in Antarctica and on top of a dormant volcano in Hawai’i. All these telescopes are located far from civilisation, where city lights don’t pollute the night skies. But, for the astronomers who ventured to the telescopes to take the data, isolation was the least of their troubles. Very dry places at high altitudes are ideal for observations, since they avoid water vapour in the atmosphere interfering with the light from astronomical objects. ALMA and APEX are located on the Chajnantor Plateau, at an altitude of 5000 metres in the barren Chilean Atacama Desert, a place so inhospitable that it serves as testing ground for Mars rovers. People working here had to use oxygen tanks as the air is too thin to breathe. The dangers of altitude sickness were also shared by observers at the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope and the Submillimeter Array located near the summit of the dormant volcano Mauna Kea. In this exposed location high above sea level, astronomers ran the risk of serious dehydration and sunstroke. At the opposite extreme of the temperature scale, observers at the South Pole Telescope in Antarctica had to endure sub-zero temperatures for long stretches of time. Here, there were unique challenges; in winter the Sun never rises above the horizon, creating a single night that lasts for months. Wonderful for the telescopes, but it takes a psychological toll on humans. Sleepless nights were spent working in these hostile regions. After almost a decade of preparation, the EHT was finally ready to use all eight telescopes as one instrument. On 5 April 2017 the EHT was for the first time aimed at the chosen target, M87*, the black hole in the centre of the enormous galaxy Messier 87, about 55 million light years from Earth. Attempting to peer into the dark heart of a galaxy tens of millions of light years away might seem like a strange choice. There are many black holes closer to home. But M87* was carefully selected. It had two big advantages: It’s one of the biggest black holes known, giving the astronomers a better chance of seeing it than smaller black holes in our neighbourhood; and isn’t too far north or south in the sky — crucial if telescopes all over the world have to observe it at the same time. When those sleepless nights of observation ended, a new phase of work began. In order to find out what they’d seen the scientists had to painstakingly combine and analyse the data. Two computation centres, one in Europe and one in the US, combined a staggering quantity of data — about 350 terabytes per day from each telescope. The data had to be synchronized by atomic clocks so precise that they lose only 1 second every 10 million years and then transported on specialised helium-filled hard drives. Hand-carrying this precious cargo might seem like a low-tech solution, but the drives contained so much data that moving them by hand was, at times, the fastest data transmission in history. After countless hours of work on the data, an image began to take shape. This image would tell hundreds of scientists whether decades of work had attained the unattainable, or had been in vain. Although black holes themselves are completely dark, they influence the path of photons travelling in their vicinity and leave an unmistakable signature on the light from the accretion disc surrounding the black hole — a large disc of matter gradually spiralling in towards its host. The infalling matter becomes very concentrated, causing friction to heat it to form a glowing plasma. The path of the light emitted by this glowing gas is determined by the black hole: the light passing close by it is bent by the enormous gravity, skirting the edges, but light passing too close is captured, never to escape. Seen from Earth with radio telescopes, these effects manifest themselves as the shadow of a black hole — a dark central region silhouetted against the luminous plasma. After 2 years of painstaking calculations, the image was finally ready…. Although taken from the staggering distance of 55 million light-years, the image revealed a ring-like structure with a dark central region. For the first time in history: the shadow of a black hole! And then we look at our first source and we see that ring. We see the event horizon and we see that shadow, that dark region and you know immediately we are looking at an event horizon at a black hole from all sides at once in this thing. We see at a region where time stops. This is a very different part of the Universe we are seeing for the very first time. I mean this is exactly what we have been looking for but after eight years and all that long process, a few weeks of imaging and they showed us exactly what we wanted. I couldn’t believe it. Well, I have to say it’s taken on a new importance now, as we actually have images that look like the simulations. There’s extraordinary confluence between theory and experiment and it promises tremendous breakthroughs on the horizon. This historic achievement is a major milestone in our evolving understanding of the Universe, and also sets a new precedent for global collaboration in scientific research. One of the most uplifting things for me is the team that we’ve built, and the fact that we’re doing something that people have told us was impossible, and when you at the end of the day do something that people tell you can’t do it’s an incredible feeling, and I think the whole team is very very proud that we’ve accomplished something like this. It’s not just for us, it’s for everyone. As the EHT is expanded it will allow us to probe the deep questions that attract researchers to black holes: how well do our laws of physics hold up under the most extreme conditions we know of? How do the mechanics of gas, radiation, and particles around a black hole work? Which theories are correct, and which will break down with more precise observations? Only time will tell which mysteries the EHT will unravel next. Transcribed by ESO; translated by —

    A black hole is the most mysterious thing in the universe yet science has somehow theorized something not even considerable in "dark energy" "dark matter". We cant figure it out, claim no understanding yet put forward a theory, of…..nothing? The more I ponder science the more credibility it loses.

    On Monday July 1st 2019 at 6:57 PM a sum of 512 conspiracy theorists and guys who like to get angry about things they don't understand (= Dunning Kruger effect) dislikes this great documentary about one of the greatest achievements of man(kind). 😞
    Luckily it has more than 18.000 likes which speaks for the intellectual capabilities among the 838,222 viewers as of the same date and time I already mentioned. 😏

    In other words:
    Thanks European Southern Observatory (ESO) Youtube channel to put up this great short documentary.

    And a list of questions:
    To all the conspiracy theorists and guys (and gals) who spread anger and false theories, playing the enlightened ones without understanding how science actually works.
    – Do you want to feel like a Neo from Matrix, albeit a Neo falling for false mentors?
    – Why do you who refuse to understand the way modern science should be presented, likes to get angry instead of using this by now wasted energy to understand what you see?
    – Why don't you pay attention to the explanations in this video and learn by carefully listening what is explanatory computer animations and what's the actual pictures? Especially when one thinks that I as a German to whom English is the second language understood the overall picture and when was shown what, this should especially tell native English speakers something about their attention span.
    – Why do you accuse NASA of lying but fully ignoring that this documentary was hosted by a part of the European space programm and observation.
    – Why do you feel the need to spit out hatred and distrust on true authorities on science and research who earned their reputation (almost on par with the ancient Roman concept of Auctoritas) by learning for decades of their lives.
    – Can it be that you're against Einsteins discoveries because he is of a certain religion antisemites hates?
    – Can it be that you're against this video just because you're against women doing science stuff thus being misogynist?
    – Why do you conspiracy theorists and anti-science guys are so prone to use strong and violent language?
    – Aren't you eloquent enough to ask your questions or state your opinions in a polite and cultivated grown up manner?
    Well, just asking questions here. 🤔

    And a call for:
    – Being proud to be a member of a species which has the ability to observe things so far away, a species which learned to overcome its natural limitation by ingenuity and intellect trumping over feelings and a backwater thinking.
    – Being proud that so manny people choses to cooperate to achieve a greater goal, to overcome old fashioned hate and mutual prejudices.
    – Being proud that they overcame all the diverse issues and problems by sheer will and cleverness.
    – Being aware that we live in such a great time of new discoveries, knowledge. Well, we might not colonize new continents anymore, but we can "conquer" worlds millions of light years away.
    – Being aware that we now live in a world full of knowledge, achievements, technology our ancestors 100 years ago would have considered a strange sureal fantasy, not even respected as science fiction anymore.

    So, again, thank you European Southern Observatory (ESO) Youtube channel for putting up this great video. 🤗

    Wake up people there are no black holes in our universe. It is impossible for gravity to attract light and is thermodynamically impossible for light to be trapped by gravity. Stars cannot collapse into black holes and create more gravity than once existed in the mass of the star itself. Stars cannot die either it is impossible. Figure it out yourself.

    Once in the twilight hour a visitor came to my study, a distinguished looking
    gentleman. He brought me a manuscript dealing with celestial mechanics. After a
    glance at some of the pages, I had the feeling that this was the work of a
    mathematical genius. I entered into a conversation with my visitor and mentioned
    the name of James Clerk Maxwell. My guest asked: ‘Who is he?’ Embarrassed I
    answered: ‘You know the scientist who gave a theoretical explanation of the
    experiments of Faraday.’ ‘And who is Faraday?’ inquired the stranger. In growing
    embarrassment I said: ‘Of course, the man who did pioneer work in
    electromagnetism.’ ‘And what is electromagnetism? Asked the gentleman. ‘What
    is your name?’ I inquired. He answered, ‘Isaac Newton.’ This story is told to illustrate what I have said before. Would you listen to anybody
    discuss the mechanics of the spheres, who does not know the elementary physical forces existing in nature? But this is the position adopted by astronomers who acclaim as infallible a celestial
    mechanics conceived in the 1660s in which electricity and magnetism play not the slightest role. They would rather tear their eyeballs out than admit the truth but they usually just hide it and remain silent

    You dont understund that Nucleus of atoms expanding and recycling dark expanding pushing force which have example nature of expanding light.

    Expanding light waves is dark for us, but we know, there is waves because we can register photons.

    But almost all expanding light mass is in dark expanding waves.

    Expanding lights interactive with eachother and get eachother expanding faster and faster. So expanding light moving faster and faster same way what matter and light expanding.

    🤔

    So, Dark Expanding light waves interactive with eachother and get eachother expanding faster. Thats why expanding light moving faster and faster same way what matter and light expanding.

    Explanation for

    1. Bending light near star and galaxy

    2. Cosmologys way redshifted light

    3. Gravity redshifted light

    So, there is no expanding space!

    No curving space!

    Space is infinity 3 D place which is nothing.

    100% do not believe in black holes, the evidence is not there yet, it is pure speculation bolstered by worried scientists who fall in line, one pixel is the only evidence they have and that to me is not science.
    We know the path of light or photons can can be altered by gravity? still up for further scrutiny, but the actual evidence is not there yet so for me, they do not exist except in science fiction, the minds of sheep and scientists who don't want to be controversial.

    WHO INVENTED THE SPACE ENTERPRISE?
    In 1543, and with the advent of the Printing Press, the Judaeo-Freemasonry Vatican (Jesuits) published Heliocentricism, ignoring the stationary, unmovable Earth, as stated in their Bible scriptures. Fast forward almost 500 years, where the people are indoctrinated from birth to worship the man-made constructs of Heaven and Space. Faith in Theory = Balltardism

    Vatican Jesuits invent the following:
    1543 – Theory Heliocentricism
    1582 – Heliocentric calendar (Pope Gregorian calendar)
    1651 – Theory Mapping Moon (Selenography)
    1763 – Theory Atomic Energy
    1809 – Theory Transmutation of Species
    1923 – Theory Missing Link (bones lost, molds prove find)
    1931 – Theory Big Bang (another ejaculation into the virgin source)

    Our history and science has been little more then fictional stories these last 2000 years. It began, with obedience from the indoctrinated masses these illiterates who paid tithing for Faith based religion and war. Today, the indoctrinated masses are educated idiots who pay tax on their labor for Theory based science and war. This is the reality propagated across the face of the Earth.

    You defend one of these fictional stories:

    Theory – SPACE (Big Bang)
    ATOM, remove Electron create Explosion
    Evolution, requires you an APE like creature to consume flesh and blood

    Faith – HEAVEN (Holy Spirit)
    ADAM, remove Rib create Women
    Creationism, the HE God gave you the clean and unclean animals for food

    WTF, the 1919 solar eclipse observations were junk science and Einstein's relativity is garbage . https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/esp_einstein.htm
    The Eclipse of 1919
    There can be no clearer definition of scientific fraud than what went on in the Tropics on May 29, 1919.
    What is particularly clear is that Eddington fudged the solar eclipse data to make the results conform to "Einstein's" work on general relativity. Poor (1930), Brown (1967), Clark (1984) and McCausland (2001) all address the issues surrounding this eclipse.
    What makes the expeditions to Sobral and Principe so suspect is Eddington's zealous support of Einstein, as can be seen in his statement,
    "By standing foremost in testing, and ultimately verifying the 'enemy' theory, our national observatory kept alive the finest traditions of science…"
    (Clark, 1984)
    In this instance, apparently Eddington was not familiar with the basic tenets of science. His job was to collect data – not verify Einstein's theories.
    Further evidence for the fraud can be deduced from Eddington's own statements and the introduction to them provided by Clark (ibid., p. 285):
    "May 29 began with heavy rain, which stopped only about noon. Not until 1.30 pm when the eclipse had already begun did the party get its first glimpse of the sun: 'We had to carry out our programme of photographs on faith…'"
    Eddington reveals his true prejudice: he was willing to do anything to see that Einstein was proved right.
    But Eddington was not to be deterred:
    "It looked as though the effort, so far as the Principe expedition was concerned, might have been abortive"; "We developed the photographs, two each night for six nights after the eclipse.
    The cloudy weather upset my plans and I had to treat the measures in a different way from what I intended; consequently I have not been able to make any preliminary announcement of the result".
    (Clark, ibid.)
    Actually, Eddington's words speak volumes about the result. As soon as he found one shred of evidence that was consistent with "Einstein's" general relativity theory, he immediately proclaimed it as proof of the theory. Is this science?
    Where were the astronomers when Eddington presented his findings? Did anyone besides Eddington actually look at the photographic plates? Poor did, and he completely repudiated the findings of Eddington. This should have given pause to any ethical scientist.
    Here are some quotes from Poor's summary:
    "The mathematical formula, by which Einstein calculated his deflection of 1.75 seconds for light rays passing the edge of the sun, is a well known and simple formula of physical optics"
    "Not a single one of the fundamental concepts of varying time, or warped or twisted space, of simultaneity, or of the relativity of motion is in any way involved in Einstein's prediction of, or formulas for, the deflection of light"
    "The many and elaborate eclipse expeditions have, therefore, been given a fictitious importance. Their results can neither prove nor disprove the relativity theory"
    (Poor, 1930).
    From Brown (1967), we learn that Eddington couldn't wait to get it out to the world community that Einstein's theory was confirmed.
    What Eddington based this on was a premature assessment of the photographic plates. Initially, stars did "appear" to bend as they should, as required by Einstein, but then, according to Brown, the unexpected happened: several stars were then observed to bend in a direction transverse to the expected direction and still others to bend in a direction opposite to that predicted by relativity.
    The absurdity of the data collected during the Eclipse of 1919 was demonstrated by Poor (1930), who pointed out that 85% of the data were discarded from the South American eclipse due to "accidental error", i.e., it contradicted Einstein's scale constant.
    By a strange coincidence, the 15% of the "good" data were consistent with Einstein's scale constant. Somehow, the stars that did not conform to Einstein's theories conveniently got temporarily shelved – and the myth began.
    So, based on a handful of ambiguous data points, 200 years of theory, experimentation and observation were cast aside to make room for Einstein. Yet the discredited experiment by Eddington is still quoted as gospel by Stephen Hawking (1999).
    It is difficult to comprehend how Hawking could comment that,
    "The new theory of curved space-time was called general relativity. It was confirmed in spectacular fashion in 1919, when a British expedition to West Africa observed a slight shift in the position of stars near the sun during an eclipse. Their light, as Einstein had predicted, was bent as it passed the sun. Here was direct evidence that space and time were warped".
    Does Hawking honestly believe that a handful of data points, massaged more thoroughly than a side of Kobe beef, constitutes the basis for overthrowing a paradigm that had survived over two centuries of acid scrutiny?
    The real question, though, is:
    "Where was Einstein in all this?"
    Surely, by the time he wrote his 1935 paper, he must have known of the work of Poor:
    "The actual stellar displacements, if real, do not show the slightest resemblance to the predicted Einstein deflections: they do not agree in direction, in size, or the rate of decrease with distance from the sun".
    Why didn't he go on the record and address a paper that directly contradicted his work? Why haven't the followers of Einstein tried to set the record straight with respect to the bogus data of 1919?
    What makes this so suspicious is that both the instruments and the physical conditions were not conducive to making measurements of great precision. As pointed out in a 2002 Internet article by the British Institute of Precise Physics, the cap cameras used in the expeditions were accurate to only 1/25th of a degree.
    This meant that just for the cap camera uncertainty alone, Eddington was reading values over 200 times too precise.
    McCausland (2001) quotes the former Editor of Nature, Sir John Maddox:
    "They [Crommelin and Eddington] were bent on measuring the deflection of light"
    "What is not so well documented is that the measurements in 1919 were not particularly accurate"
    "In spite of the fact that experimental evidence for relativity seems to have been very flimsy in 1919, Einstein's enormous fame has remained intact and his theory has ever since been held to be one of the highest achievements of human thought"
    It is clear that from the outset Eddington was in no way interested in testing "Einstein's" theory; he was only interested in confirming it. One of the motivating factors in Eddington's decision to promote Einstein was that both men shared a similar political persuasion: pacifism.
    To suggest that politics played no role in Eddington's glowing support of Einstein, one need ask only one question:
    "Would Eddington have been so quick to support Einstein if Einstein had been a hawk?"
    This is no idle observation. Eddington took his role as the great peacemaker very seriously.
    He wanted to unite British and German scientists after World War I. What better way than to elevate the "enemy" theorist Einstein to exalted status? In his zeal to become peacemaker, Eddington lost the fundamental objectivity that is the essential demeanor of any true scientist. Eddington ceased to be a scientist and, instead, became an advocate for Einstein.
    The obvious fudging of the data by Eddington and others is a blatant subversion of scientific process and may have misdirected scientific research for the better part of a century. It probably surpasses the Piltdown Man as the greatest hoax of 20th century science.
    The BIPP asked,
    "Was this the hoax of the century?" and exclaimed, "Royal Society 1919 Eclipse Relativity Report Duped World for 80 Years!"
    McCausland stated that,
    "In the author's opinion, the confident announcement of the decisive confirmation of Einstein's general theory in November 1919 was not a triumph of science, as it is often portrayed, but one of the most unfortunate incidents in the history of 20th-century science".
    It cannot be emphasized enough that the Eclipse of 1919 made Einstein, Einstein. It propelled him to international fame overnight, despite the fact that the data were fabricated and there was no support for general relativity whatsoever.
    This perversion of history has been known about for over 80 years and is still supported by people like Stephen Hawking and David Levy.

    This is such a joke. These images are around 13 years old and total BS. This is nothing more than written data. The next crap they are going to tell you is they are linking telescopes in orbit with the same tech and show you planets around other stars. The images are already done and gathering dust waiting on all this BS to be presented at the right time. This is garbage religion nothing more.

    A moment of your time. Marker 5:00 to 6:56. How is that possible if the earth isn't flat? You can only do that on a flat earth. There should be 1546 miles of curvature, according to science. Huh? What? They're telling you if you pay attention. I liked space science. I still find it entertaining. Which really isn't that far pointing at the sky.

    I'm not too educated in much of this field of science- but I have to ask- did I miss something in this? If, as is taught, the earth is a globe- how did they get telescopes in different hemispheres (N/S/E/W) all to focus at the same point in space at the same time?

    An idea about the black hole needs to be revised. Actually, it is a cryogenic dense mass below zero Kelvin made up of anti-matter formed by the split at the beginning ,forming galaxies at the periphery and the black holes in the middle. We can not observe the black hole because objects at cryogenic temperature do not radiate and not from singularity or supergravity.

    Singularity could of only existed at one time, that time was before the universe as we know it was created. Before the universe as it is, it was singularity. Everything that is, was as one. This meens the saying that our universe is a structured chaos is false, it is accurately correct, as it once was it was perfect, as it is now its still perfect,but it's not as one. It's sorta like massive puzzle in its singularity existence its put together perfectly and ait is as we know it, it's still perfect by meens all pieces exist but only scattered about.

    That bending of light around the Sun was probably caused by simple diffraction, not a warping of space. Einstein was a very successful science fiction writer, not a scientist who found actual physical truth. The black hole is probably just a myth that exists in calk on a blackboards, but not in space. The picture of black holes on the Internet are probably just pictures of digitally doctored data that has been interpreted with bias to achieve a desired result. Scientists today have lost the ability of critical thinking and believe legacy myths instead of looking at issues with a clear and questioning mind.
