New algorithm developed at MIT for imaging black holes

Posted on 06/07 19:37 in Shows | 0

Everybody knows you can’t see a black hole.Leaving aside the can of worms labeled Hawking radiation, we still know that the matter falling into a black hole heats up as it falls in.

The BCG is a giant elliptical galaxy, tens of thousand light years across, with a supermassive black hole at its core.Streaking toward the Brightest Cluster black hole are three enormous, lumpy clouds of cold gas, and they’re all raining into the black hole at the same time.

Its wavelengths, as we were able to create and use them, were in many cases too large for our purposes — even in the smallest range.Yet today, high-level quantum experiments regularly use entanglement as a tool to make even larger discoveries.

Scientists will try to directly image Sagittarius A*, the black hole at the center of the Milky Way

To solve this problem, eight observatories have joined forces to form the Event Horizon Telescope.In this case, because the EHT telescopes are so far-flung, their effective size is the size of the whole Earth.

The new development comes in the form of an optical chip that can be used to upgrade an existing telescope.Passive noise canceling is just acoustic insulation, sort of like a notch filter, but active noise canceling seeks to negate external noise using acoustic interference.
