The Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration observed the supermassive black hole at the center of M87, finding the dark central shadow in accordance with General Relativity, further demonstrating the power of this 100 year-old theory.
To understand more about why the shadows look the way they do, check out:
I will continue updating this description with more links.

*FOR NATURE ABHORS BLACK HOLES* The failsafe mechanism. Black hole cannot exist for if you try to force fermions together, eventually the principle of tunneling will take effect which would not allow the particles of matter to concentrate, the particles will escape the confinement with infinite energy if necessary, it is the law of nature and it will not be violated. *The principal of of tunneling a corollary of the exclusion principle and the enemy of the singularity.* The principal of tunneling in physics is the phenomenon in which an object, usually an elementary particle, tunnels through a potential barrier even though it does not have sufficient energy to surmount the barrier.

Why can’t we see the flag on the moon? But we can see a black hole hundreds of millions of light years away? Per usual, NASA has changed their answer multiple times over the years. First, it was because they planted it on the ‘dark side of the moon’ (even though the pictures from ‘the moon’ are fully illuminated). Next, it was because of erosion and space debris hit it. Hahaha. NASA fan boys actually think they’re looking at ‘outer space’ in this video. The image is 100% cgi it was never even a still of anything in the first place. Ever notice how NASA has disproportionately changed the size of the continents through out the years as well?

5:00 Black hole that was captured by white people. Why there is no whine about that 'racist' fact in the social media and a mandate to self-execute half of them via whipping to blood and get those looters some place in this team? Why do they even not on their knees? How come such racist nazis are even exist, and even making groundbreaking discoveries?

Years ago the Earth was "flat". After all, it was SEEN flat all the time, even the oceans were! ALSO, maggots were "born out" of rotten meat. They were also SEEN coming out it! Now we "believe" in black holes. Seems to me it is pretty common sensical to ALWAYS keep a certain degree of Doubt concerning scientific theories since most of them will be proven wrong in the future. Just saying...

@yamen-tG2 its not "some random emmited scattered light" its light from heated matter thats orbiting around a black hole. you can see it because it has not passed event horizon. the black dot in the middle if image is event horizon. which is black because if light passes the horizon it cannot escape

Well before we couldn’t see black holes because light could bounce of it, and in order to see something light reflects of it so you can see it but the reason light can bounce off a black hole is because the black hole itself consumes the light so than mean the light can’t return, so it’s not really visible to the human eye, this info isn’t mine I just found it
