the The first picture from U.S Black holehas since been taken over four yearsShow a Diffuse a burning ring-shaped object. Now, scientists have used artificial intelligence (AI) to give Aesthetic treatment this cosmic body.
Updated image published Thursday in the magazine Astrophysical Journal LettersMaintains original formbut with a thinner ring And Sharper accuracy.
picture 2019 Allows a peek at A massive black hole in the middle Galaxy M87l 53 million light years from Earth.
One light year equals 9.3 billion km. They created it using data collected by a network of radio telescopes around the world that showed a whirlwind of light and gas.
However, despite the collaborative work of many telescopes, there are still gaps in the data. In the latest study, scientists relied on the same data and They used artificial intelligence to fill in the missing parts.
The resulting image is identical to the original image, but with “bell“ the thinnest and a darker centerthe researchers said.
“For me, it feels like seeing it for the first timesaid lead author Lia Medeiros, an astrophysicist at the Institute for Advanced Study in New Jersey.
Medeiros said the team will use machine learning — also known as machine learning — on other images of a celestial body, possibly the black hole at the center of our orbit. milky way.
This is the closest black hole to Earth
Astronomers find out black hole known closest to earth, Just 1600 light years far.
Scientists reported that this black hole Ten times larger than our sun and he three times closer Who is considered the closest.
It was identified by observing the motion of its companion star, which orbits the black hole at roughly the same distance that Earth orbits the sun.
Karim El-Badry of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics said the black hole was initially identified using the European Space Agency’s Gaia probe.
