TOMSK, Apr 11 – RIA Tomsk. The first ever picture of a real black hole is the experimental proof of the correctness of Einstein's theory, the associate professor of the Faculty of Physics of Tomsk State University (TSU) Vyacheslav Tamarov told RIA Tomsk on Thursday.

As it is reported by "Izvestia", astrophysicists scientists for the first time in the history received the image of the black hole event horizon. The region is located in the active galaxy M87, which is 53 million light-years from Earth. The images were taken in April 2017 using the Event Horizon Telescope, which is a collection of eight powerful radio telescopes from different countries.

"This is the experimental proof of the Albert Einstein's theory – the theory of relativity. This one of the greatest physical theories is more than 100 years old. It predicts a lot, these predictions are constantly confirmed by experiments. Here is another confirmation, powerful enough", – Tamarov said.

According to him, the published image of a supermassive black hole located in the center of the galaxy M87 – is an additional confirmation of the theoretical conclusions about the existence of black holes.

“We only indirectly imagined what is it – a black hole. Theoretically, it turns out that such objects should exist, and we did not see it directly. And here it is clear that there is a shadow, something dark”, – the researcher noted.

He specified that a black hole – is one of the objects of the Universe, which contains many different components. "For example, stars are born from gas-dust matter, shrink into clouds, then a star appears and it begins to shine independently, radiating energy. It lives long and dies at the end, turning into one of three types of compact objects. The most massive stars turn into black holes", – the interlocutor of the agency added.
