Amitabh Bachchan's words of caution to Shoojit Sircar over black hole tweet
Scientists released the much-awaited first direct image of a massive black hole at the centre of Messier 87, a galaxy which is about 54 million light-years away, at the National Press Club on Wednesday (April 10).
The image has been taken by the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), which is a network of 10 radio telescopes spread across the planet, according to The Washington Post. The telescope functioned as if it is a single receiver, tuned to high-frequency radio waves, to take the image.
After NASA shared pictures of the black hole, marking a revolution in understanding space, filmmaker Shoojit Sircar tweeted, "First black hole image is unbelievable. I can't think of anything else. I want to go there (sic)."
