A Fuzzy Space Image

“Fuzzy Orange Donut” A.K.A. the Black Hole

   Back in 2019, the first photo of a black hole was released. This massive black hole was captured in the center of galaxy Messier 87 with direct imaging, a process in which scientists search for light reflections or  thermal radiation from a planet. 

   The initial pictures show a very fuzzy, blurry image that provides photographic  evidence that black holes exist. It was nicknamed the “fuzzy orange donut”.

   Recently, scientists have used more advanced technology like machine learning, which is an AI technique that allows for more accurate predictions, to capture a clearer image of this “fuzzy orange donut.” With this new image, we see a much larger and darker region with a thinner ring around it.
