Black hole picture captured for first time in space ‘breakthrough’

Astronomers have captured the first image of a black hole, heralding a revolution in our understanding of the universe’s most enigmatic objects.

The picture shows a halo of dust and gas, tracing the outline of a colossal black hole, at the heart of the Messier 87 galaxy, 55 million light years from Earth.

The black hole itself – a cosmic trapdoor from which neither light nor matter can escape – is unseeable. But the latest observations take astronomers right to its threshold for the first time, illuminating the event horizon beyond which all known physical laws collapse.

Scientists announce the first image captured of a black hole – watch live

The breakthrough image was captured by the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), a network of eight radio telescopes spanning locations from Antarctica to Spain and Chile, in an effort involving more than 200 scientists.

Sheperd Doeleman, Event Horizon Telescope Director and Harvard University senior research fellow said: “Black holes are the most mysterious objects in the universe. We have seen what we thought was unseeable. We have taken a picture of a black hole.”

The image gives the first direct glimpse of a black hole’s accretion disk, a fuzzy doughnut-shaped ring of gas and dust that steadily “feeds” the monster within.

Study: Poor air quality on cruise ships may endanger the health of passengers, staff and port communities

If the idea of cruising conjures up images of good, clean sea air in your mind, think again. A recent study by a researcher from Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health found that air pollution on board many ships is so high that it endangers the health of passengers, crew and even people living in port communities.

Air quality was inconspicuously measured in three different environments on each of four cruise ships – the Carnival Liberty, Holland America’s MS Amsterdam, the Emerald Princess and the Carnival Freedom — to try to determine how exhaust fumes from each ship might impact air quality on deck.

The study’s author, Ryan David Kennedy, Ph.D., MAES, an assistant professor with Johns Hopkins’ Department of Health, Behavior and Society, took measurements of ultrafine particulate pollution while each ship was on the move at sea when forward momentum would create spaces on the deck that were either upwind or downwind of the ship’s smokestacks.

The results? “Extremely high levels of air pollution” were detected – levels so high, in fact, that they rival some of the world’s most polluted cities, including Santiago, Chile and Beijing, China. (Related: WHO: 9 out of 10 people in the world breathe polluted air.)

Thousands of ships spewing dirty air across the oceans – with dire consequences

Experts estimate that over 30 million people will embark on a cruise somewhere in the world this year. In addition, millions more people work on cruise ships or live in port communities exposed to pollution from cruise ship smokestacks.
