First pics of black hole

Scientists on Wednesday revealed the first image of a black hole, the result of the work of a team of some 200 scientists from 20 countries. The orange, yellow and black image is of a black hole in a galaxy located 53 million light-years from Earth, and was created with data from eight radio telescopes around the world. Because the equipment used detects wavelengths the human eye can't see, color was added to convey the intense heat of the gas and dust. Black holes, which are at the center of most galaxies, are so dense that nothing can escape their gravitational pull, not even light.
